Blueprints for the Little Church

How do we as Orthodox parents effectively raise our children in the Church so that they will remain close to Christ throughout their lives? It all begins with involving them in the life of the Church from the very beginning — in the parish and at home.

Blueprints for the Little Church provides practical ideas and encouragement — without judgement — for incorporating the primary practices of Orthodox spirituality into family life at every stage of its growth and throughout the church year.

Caleb Shoemaker and I wrote Blueprints for the Little Church: Creating an Orthodox Home for all the families like our own, who struggle to find the right way to bring the riches of Orthodox tradition into a modern family.
