Last week I posted the final of the 55 Maxims of Christian Living. Father Thomas Hopko created this list for a podcast he did in 2008. I decided early on when I created this website that I would do a focus on them each Monday. I did my first Maxim Monday on March 19, 2018.
This has been incredibly inspiring for me. I learned a lot and am very grateful.
These posts will forever be here for me to refer back to whenever I need or want to be inspired by Fr. Thomas’ wise words.
You too, can check back any time you’d like by going to the tags section and click on Maxim Monday.
Also available is the ability to print out each individual maxim. This is a great way to take the time to focus on one at a time. Print and post somewhere as your reminder to work on it. Just go here, or to the “Printables” page.
I am an Orthodox Christian, a deacon’s wife, a mother, and an aspiring Kindler of Joy.
I believe I’ve begun to understand (finally), by the grace of God, where we can begin to find happiness. True happiness. My heart longs for a deeper connection to those around me and to creation. I want to feel joy not only in myself but to see it on the face of people I love and those that God brings my way.
Thus, begins my journey to become a Kindler of Joy. It is a journey, a path of learning and growing. So I’ve created my blog as a reminder to myself, daily, to open my eyes and find the beauty and joy around me. I long to share this joy, to spread this joy and to inspire others to become Kindlers of Joy. When we kindle joy in others we spread a light throughout this dark world. A light that is desperately needed.
Won't you join me in spreading this light, this joy?
