"Then by abiding in God in mind and heart, endeavor to fulfill in body the duties and affairs which your station in life imposes upon you." Theophan the Recluse
"Everything you do, all your work, can contribute towards your salvation. It depends on you, on the way you do it. History is replete with monks who became great saints while working in the kitchen or washing sheets. The way of salvation consists in working without passion, in prayer…. May God give you the strength to keep your spirit, your mind, and your heart in the spirit of Christ. Then everything that happens to you can very quickly be radically transformed. What was tiresome and discouraging will disappear, transfigured by your desire to be there where Christ your God is." Elder Sophrony

From Princess to Powerkicker!
Well, on Friday she was dressed like a Princess and Monday night she took her belt test at Martial Arts...
Now she is a red belt in Jin Pal Hapkido. She has been taking classes for almost 12 years, and we are so proud of her!
I just started classes last month-She can totally kick my butt, (and she is an excellent teacher.)
