Fr. Alexander Goussetis and Presvytera Melanie DiStefano of the Center for Family Care have co-authored a book for couples’ spiritual growth. Crowns of Glory & Honor! guides couples of all ages and stages of engaged and married life through a variety of spiritual activities and conversations to help them deepen their relationship with Christ and each other.
Listen to what reviewers are saying:
“These activities ... invite reflection, sharing joys and sorrows, holding the space of empathy as an act of love and self-examination in the face of honest self-disclosure, journaling, Bible study, intercessory prayer and confession – all contributing toward building a solid foundation in a lived Christian faith and deeper appreciation for the encounter of Eucharist at the altar of the heart of the Liturgy and the sacrament of marriage.” - Fr Stephen Muse
“I recommend this book to any and all who are interested in strengthening their marriage. Such books are rare and to be cherished...Crowns of Glory & Honor! can provide a fine helpmate for husband and wife to grow together in their love for each other, and therefore their love for Christ.” - Dr. Albert Rossi
"The authors draw skillfully from the Eastern Orthodox Christian tradition in creating exercises that invite intimate and healing encounters between spouses, opening them up to God's loving presence in their relationship ...The book gives each couple the freedom to move at their own pace and provides generous resources throughout. A great gift for any couple - engaged, newlywed, and experienced. " -Dr. George Stavros
