Respect Your Parents: Not Just for Kids!

Sponsored By: Orthodox Christian Counseling Institute (OCCI)

What do you do when your parents are no longer a proper example for your children?   We’ve invited Dr. Ary Christofidis, the Founder and Director of the Orthodox Christian Counseling Institute (OCCI), to speak on a current dynamic of extended families. Are boundaries the answer?  Listen and you will hear some good, solid advice.

But, before the feature interview, Fr. Chris speaks with Calee M. Lee to talk about her new historical fiction encouraging children to practice charity.  A Necklace of Virtues, A Story of St. Audrey, is based on a 7th century saint who lived a life devoted to God.
