Welcome to Coptic Dad & Mom!
I’m Laura, blogger & head honcho of these here parts. (Learn more about me!)
If you want to grow in faith and love but don’t know where to start, this page is for you!
As a servant in the Coptic church and the wife of a new priest, I know we all face ups and down and surprise twists in our spiritual life. Isn’t it better when we grow together?
You don’t have to belong to the Coptic Orthodox Church to benefit (nearly a fourth of my readers do not), but you may find some unfamiliar terminology. You can check out my ever-growing glossary here.
It’s my desire that through this site we learn to love each other more and hold on tighter to God.
I’m currently working on a series of resources for Sunday school servants. You can learn more about that at weservants.com.
What to Expect
I put up a blog post every Thursday. It will usually fall into my three main topics (as requested by my readers in a survey): faith, culture, family.
Those on my newsletter list get a weekly digest of posts published that week!
