"How much do you know about yourself?" asks the author in her first chapter. This brilliant little book is about growing up -- psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually. Based on the teachings of inspired early Christian fathers, it describes the God-given potential of every person and how to bring it about in everyday life. In a refreshing and clear style, the author deals with such issues as self-image, decision-making, false guilts, the gift of sex, responsibility, prayer, and God's immense love for every human being.
Written in 1973 for teenagers and young people, it continues to be life changing today for both teens and adults striving to live the Christian life.

Due to the severe ice storms of February 11th & 15th, the monastery has been without power, phones and internet for a prolonged period of time. This will likely continue for the indefinite future due to the severe damage from the storm throughout the entire region.
We are working to fulfill orders placed via our online store as quickly as we are able, however the process is very slow since we need to drive hours to town to download the orders, return to the monastery to print them off and package them, and then drive back into town to ship them since no mail or shipping services are able to reach us. We appreciate everyone's patience as we are doing our best to run our business during these circumstances.
Please pray for us!
