Glory to Jesus Christ!
Let me begin by telling you that for years now I've wanted to create an online meeting place where Byzantine moms could gather to:
*collect our thoughts
*support each other
*pray for and with each other
*share our craft and activity ideas
*collect lesson plans
*come up with recipe ideas for our feasts and fasts
...and not have to tweak or tailor them to better fit our traditional Eastern Christian point of view.
This is it! Welcome to ByziMom!
This is our site! Here you'll find my collection of ideas to bring Christ into your domestic church daily, all from a Byzantine perspective.
I'm truly happy to share all the beautiful moments of my life as a Byzantine homeschool mom with you, and I hope you"ll all feel free to share your own trials and triumphs here with us as well.
Take a look around. Check in and become a member of the group so we can get to know each other better!
Make yourself at home!
