A Sacred Beginning is the book I wish I had as a new mother. Those first 40 days are truly sacred and exhausting and this book feels like a friend that keeps vigil with you in the wee morning hours and guides you in the right direction when you’re not sure which way is up.

-SYLVIA LEONTARITIS, author of the blog

Adventures of an Orthodox Mom

This sensitive, practical book answers a great pastoral need within the Church, and it will be not only a comfort but a lifeline for many Christian women during the tender days of early motherhood

—LAURA S. JANSSON, mother, doula, author of Fertile Ground: A Pilgrimage Through Pregnancy

These meditations would be valuable and beneficial to mothers at any time, but they are carefully crafted to transform the beautiful little

40-day postpartum season into a time, not of distance or isolation from the Holy Church, but of spiritual retreat and contemplation.

—ELISSA BJELETICH, podcaster and author,

Tending the Garden of Our Hearts
