parenting is hard; it is an art
Our goal is to provide books for both individual and group study.
After you have read a book on parenting, consider hosting a book study so that the book may bless many families in your community. Some even find that non-Orthodox parents will enjoy and appreciate an Orthodox book study on parenting.
As time permits, we will create and release discussion guides. If you create or have access to a discussion guide for a book on parenting, please consider sharing it with us for wider release.
Our book list below is organized according to publication date.

blog on being an Orthodox mom
Excerpt from the About page:
I started this blog in 2008 to simply interact with other moms in the same phase of life I was in. There was nothing at all online for Orthodox moms, so I created a place where we could meet and talk about all the mishaps and triumphs of raising children within the Faith.
Before I knew it this tiny little corner of the world wide web had grown larger than I ever imagined. I’ve met the most amazing people and now count some of them as my dearest friends. In 2009, I published my first children’s book, A Pocketful of Seeds. In 2011, I began traveling to different places and speaking at various conferences and events. My newest book, Songs of Praise was just released from Ancient Faith Publishing.
