I’m Annalisa Boyd, Orthodox Christian wife, mom to 10 and the author of The Ascetic Lives of Mothers, Hear Me, and Special Agents of Christ. My greatest desire is to encourage families in the faith. I have created SaintsBox.com for the purpose of helping families to make deeper connections between Church and home.
Years ago I listened to a podcast by Dr. Philip Mamalakis. He talked about Sunday mornings that sounded a lot like mine; fighting, chaos and getting to church late. He decided to start reading Sunday’s scriptures on Saturday night and found his children were more attentive during the Divine Liturgy because they were familiar with what they were hearing. SaintsBox.com isn’t trying “improve” church. Our goal is to help children engage with more of the service and make deeper connections with Christ and His Saints.
