Two Become One: A Riddle and Its Answer

Reflection questions abound in this book, and are designed for couples to discuss together in order to learn more about (and from) one another. Questions such as “What does agape love mean?” or “In what ways is your home like the Church?” serve as thought-provoking prompts on the meaning of marriage, and can serve as a constant source of conversation for couples new and experienced.

We Are Orthodoxy – What This Podcast Is and Is Not

We Are Orthodoxy was born out of many conversations we’ve had with concerned parents, grandparents, and godparents who are seeing their children grow up and slip away from the Church. Many of these same adults reflexively offer an answer to their own question: “Secularism! The liberal agenda!

Beautiful Things: An Orthodox Coloring Book for Children

No holds barred, this teacher, a life-long lover of learning, poured into these children rich details about complex ideas and precise nomenclature. I love the Montessori concept of the…
