We’ve posted a newly assembled PDF of the Akathist to the Mother of God, Nurturer of Children on our prayer page. Please check it out, download it, use it, and share it. May it be as much a blessing for you as it is to us!
“Pray and then speak. That’s what to do with your children. If you are constantly lecturing them, you’ll become tiresome and when they grow up they’ll feel a kind of oppression. Prefer prayer and speak to them through prayer. Speak to God and God will speak to their hearts.” – Elder Porphyrios, Wounded by Love
