a homeschooling Orthodox Christian family

family chrismation day

I found a wonderfully personal blog by an Orthodox Christian homeschooling mom who has lots of children; one of them has a disability (as well as many abilities!)

This is where divine-human socialization (or, more properly, Theosis) happens- the Orthodox Christian family. This is where loving parents, by the grace and energies of God, self-sacrificially rise to the challenge of seeing a child, with all his or her strengths and weaknesses, through to adulthood toward true personhood in Christ. And here is one family in which this is happening:


Also, meet Miriam: http://thoughtsfromtheothersideofthemountain.blogspot.com/search?q=Miriam

Miriam’s growth in Christ and my growth in Christ and all our growth together towards theosis in Christ is of ultimate significance. And we must attend to the how, and this mother is giving us the privilege of seeing how their family is proceeding in Christ.

Thank you, Mairs!

    Huh..I just now came across this post – thanks for the shout out. I do, in fact, have 5 children with special needs and often write about them on my blog. I will be spending more time here in the future! Many years to you!
