During this Lenten season, we are all engaged in spiritual struggle of one kind or another, and it seems a good moment to share what I’ve learned in the last five years about the intersection of creativity, struggle, and media publishing. With this goal, I’ve created a list of five hard lessons we all seem to encounter on our way to producing high-quality books and podcasts.

It’s an Orthodox tradition to view preparation for church as the “first procession” in the service, the journey from ordinary life into the sacred space where we will enter the Kingdom. As a lay person, you know what you need to do to get ready – you might change your clothes, round up your children, find a prayer rope or an icon for…
At Ancient Faith Publishing, we LOVE creating books for kids! It is our belief that the books we make for children are just as important as the books we make for adults. In fact, since kids are under our care and guidance, since children are gifts given to us—whom we should teach and love and nurture–our work for them better be good.
