I am so grateful I had the opportunity to interview Elenie (Poulos) Grasos. I don’t think you could find a better resource for immediately useable Orthodox children’s teaching tools and materials, than at www.orthodoxeducation.blogspot.com. Elenie has provided the Orthodox world with such an amazing gift that we are blessed to be able to utilize. Through her materials and insight, she allows us to really teach our children in a more meaningful and tangible way. She also shares topics and themes that we might not even think to discuss with our youth, and provides ways to do so.
In addition to all this work, she also has an invitation and design company called Orthodox Invitations www.orthodoxdesign.com. Her designs are so modern and elegant, and allow us to announce the sacraments we celebrate so beautifully.
And if that wasn’t enough, she also has worked on the BEAUTIFUL Orthodox children’s books made by The Sisters of All Saints Greek Orthodox Monastery.
I love these books!

What I love about about my job: immediate kid feedback and the chance to do something uniquely Orthodox
