Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!
The longer I am Orthodox (9 years on October 4, 2023), the more difficult the spiritual struggle for theosis becomes. I feel like Peter sinking in the lake if I take my eyes off of Christ and my mind off the Jesus Prayer for even a minute!
As we open this icon store TO THE GLORY OF GOD ALONE, I wanted to come up here and post so you can get to know us better.
One way you can do that is to take the time to read all of the documents under the FAQ and pages in the header and footer menus.
Another way is to click over to my Orthodox Boomer Grandma YouTube Channel. There I post videos showing our San Jose Candle Company (since 1998), the Union of All Orthodox Christian Healing Arts Center, the icon shop as well as videos of our adorable dogs, Buddy and Bear, our property including our upcoming small RV place, the beautiful Red Hills etc!
Try going up to my channel Orthodox Boomer Grandma and check things out! I have several monastery trip visit videos too and will be posting more videos of the local ROCOR monastery if I get a blessing for that! Like and subscribe and share with your friends. We may be boomers but we are trying to keep up with our Orthodox Zoomer Grandsons and Granddaughters!
You can also go up to the Young Penitent Channel to see an interview he did of me in the healing center a few months back! We love Daniel and his channel so like, share and subscribe to him too!
We plan to post articles on the theology of iconography and material on praying with icons eventually.
We want to be your One-Stop-Mom-and-Pop-Shop for all things icons and Orthodox Christian art and culture creation...well maybe not one-stop, but that phrase looks so cool!
God Bless all of you out there and know that this "business" belongs to God and we run it very tightly on prayer. I actually stopped learning too much about how to advertise and do SEO etc., because I was getting exhausted doing that. Once I relaxed and re-dedicated myself to praying and ASKING GOD what He wants us to do up here, things seem to be coming together much better and in a very sweet and relaxed manner!
It's up to God to bring people up here sometimes through your sharing! Amen. We hope you will be edified in addition to finding wonderful icons and other things for your Orthodox Life!
