This page has all of our recommended resources for the Orthodox faith.  Whether you are trying to figure out exactly what Orthodoxy is and how it's different, or you are a cradle Orthodox Christian interested in browsing family projects and ideas, or you're just a theology nerd like Jake - this is the place for you!

Simplicity and sustainability must have been made for each other.  They are also, we have found, a way to live a life that is full and focused.  We aren't very good at this yet, so we'd love for you to join us on our journey and learn along with us (or teach us a few things if you can!)  This page will cover everything from homesteading to nourishing recipes, gardening to building, home birth to home remedies and much more!  

This is our homeschooling page where you can find all of our thoughts and experiences on homeschooling as well as all the resources we have loved and used in the past and the ones we are enjoying now!  If you are a homeschooling family or thinking about becoming one, check it out.

With several years of experience advocating for orphans, fundraising for families and adopting children of our own; this is one area that is very close to our hearts and that we have plenty of resources and experiences to share.  We don't have it all figured out yet, but these are the things that have been helping us on our way.

I was going to list all of the different aspects of parenting these precious children, but if you're in the trenches - I don't need to elaborate.  You already know.  Take a look at our page along with the resources and relatively small experience we have to offer.  Or just come on in for some good old fashioned camaraderie.  The more the merrier! 

From depression and anxiety to autoimmunity and metabolic struggles, we know what it's like to live with chronic illness.  And it isn't a club we ever wanted to be a part of.  Here is what we have learned, discovered, tried, failed and what we have had success with.  Here is a place to support one another as we work to overcome the illnesses we can control and as we bear the crosses of those we cannot.
