Let's do Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future first!! Let me know when you get it. I already have a copy and got through the first couple sections, but decided I didn't want to go it alone.

I'll re-read it! I have "The Soul After Death" from my dad and I'm picking up "Eichmann in Jerusalem" from the library later.

My husband was talking to one of his coworkers a few weeks ago and she mentioned how her teenage son isn't bothered by horror movies, but watched ET recently and was scared and disturbed by it-- "That scene where you first see ET, he started screaming! I don't get it, it's a classic! It's just a puppet" And I thought FR. SERAPHIM WAS RIGHT, ET is a demon lol

I will need to order this book. I just find it inconvenient to read books online, rather in hand allowing for notes.
ST. HERMAN OF ALASKA has a publication purchase site - @IconWriter.

I am in for this book! Finally, starting to read some of these great suggestions.

Edit: I did not find the book at https://jordanville.org/donate# ; but donated. I think from now on Orthodox books will be bought from Monastery.

I got it from a monastery in California. I think it was the one Fr Seraphim Rose originally published the book at?

Hi everyone. I’m not sure if I’m doing this correctly, but I am trying to post in the Introduction page. I apologize if I am going about this wrong.

I have wanted to join this forum for awhile. I don’t have any social media and I don’t belong to any forums or blogs—except this one now. I have learned a lot reading Roosh’s work over the last 3-4 years and I think this forum will benefit me.

I am married with a 10 month old baby. I am a new Stay-at-home mom. I worked part-time jobs since I was in high school and worked a full-time job for 11 years after college. I stopped working a month before our baby was born. I am much happier now than I was when working.

I grew up in the Lutheran faith. I attended Sunday School at our local Lutheran church and as I got older I would attend worship with my grandmothers. My maternal grandmother is Lutheran and my paternal grandmother was Catholic so I would alternate Sundays at both church’s. However, I would consider myself Lutheran.
I stopped going to church in 2008. When my grandfather died I used it as an excuse to stop going but that is probably when I should have kept with it. Between 2008-2015, I was incredibly shallow and full of sin. These were the darkest years of my life-influenced by social media, television and the bar scene.
It was only when I met my husband did I see the damage I did to my soul between those years. I am ashamed by my past behavior.

As I learn and ask for forgiveness, I think reading the thoughts of religious and traditional women will serve me well. Thank you for having me and I look forward to what is to come.

We started reading Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future as a book group! Feel free to join us. The thread is titled for the book. I need to get my copy out and get back with it because I had to put it down feeling a little ashamed of myself and my former lifestyle after the Orthodoxy "redemption narratives" in the beginning of the book!
I have tween boys, cook all my own meals and live in a soil and water conservancy in the wilderness! Much more trad than I ever thought I would be.

Hello ladies! I'm new here and I don't know if I'm doing it right or not. Anyway I'm really bad at introducing myself but I will try.
I'm a single woman in her late 20s, Greek Orthodox and from a pretty conservative family and country.
I found Roosh's page and forum few months ago and I finally decided to register. I was practicing my faith when I was younger, a kid to be honest, as my dad who is super religious, was taking me to the church etc. As I was growing up I followed my mother's ideology (she is also Christian but in a way more modern way).
My faith faded away when I was studying at the university (art, philosophy, Byzantine studies, cultural heritage, history, archaeology, Christian, Islamic and Ancient civilizations religions) and I started to question everything and interpreting Christianity with "academic eyes". No, I didnt quit my studies (I love it) I'm a PhD student now, but my mentality changed.
In the past 5 years, I felt a bit lost (the wild life, feminism, sexual freedom are completely different from what my parents taught me and I dont fit in that lifestyle), and slowly without fully understood what I was doing I changed, stopped casual dating, drinking, clubbing, be more modest etc.
Still not fully practicing my religion, but I'm ready to learn from you and "explore" that option as well. First of all, I really want to understand and improve myself, and then (if it's meant to be) to find a proper husband and start a new life together.

Sorry about my English, it's not my first language.
Looking forward to meet you all :)

Hello everyone <3

So grateful Roosh has created this space. I can't remember how I first found him, sometime last year during my homecoming to Christ, but I read Lady and it landed very well with me!

I was not raised with religion though my parents did instill fairly traditional values in me, and are quite conservative and "old school" by today's standards. Despite that, they did divorce, and I was influenced by a lot of my mom's feminist thinking growing up [though, she also taught me to respect men, be ladylike in deportment and manners, dress well, cook, etc].

During my twenties I got lost in New Age and esoteric teachings, wandering the earth trying to find the truth. It had been hammered into me for so long that organized religion was man-made and there was nothing there for me, that I never though to question this belief or explore Christianity. Though I was influenced by feminism, I never fit in with the party scene. I've never really enjoyed bars, drinking, etc, and have always wanted to have a more trad life with lots of children and homesteading etc.

Unfortunately, I did not choose serious relationship material well and am now very early 30's and devoted to Christ, but struggling so much with the desire for marriage and children.

That aside, I am so happy to be in a community where these things are valued! I saw that everyone is reading Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future - that book changed me in ways I can't describe! I love Father Seraphim so much.

God bless you

Hi everyone,

I've been a lurker on the former for some time but had never gotten around to posting. I'm somewhat recently unemployed so I expect I will have more time to be active on here. I believe I found Roosh around 2018 and read his book Lady and have been following him since. I'm in my late 20's and single but yearning to someday be married with children. I was baptized and raised Catholic but fell away from the faith after college and moving to a very liberal, degenerate city. After the pandemic started, I relocated to be closer to my family in a much more rural area. I've spent the past year and a half getting off antidepressants and other psychiatric medications. Through that journey, I've reconnected to my faith and it has helped a lot. I use to work for an extremely liberal tech company but since getting off the medication, I guess I was no longer as "numb" to the constant SJW propaganda and couldn't stomach working there any longer so I quit a few months ago. Besides my faith, I spend a lot of time with my dogs. I enjoy learning languages, cooking/baking and embroidery. (If anyone is into embroidery, please send me a message).

I'm looking forward to joining and participating in a more like minded community that I have yet to find elsewhere.

Cheers,
Rosie

Welcome Rosie, I have found this ladies forum to be an oasis for those of us looking to connect with likeminded people aiming to live a life pleasing to God.

Our stories are very similar, especially the part about not being able to work for a liberal tech company. I'm in the process of trying to quit my job in a STEM company that has been hijacked by the insane liberal agenda. See this thread that I started if you are interested: https://www.rooshvforum.com/threads...enior-manager-but-i-will-not-back-down.39848/

I'm also in my late 20s and moved in with my brother when the lockdowns began. I speak a few languages, love to cook and bake and recently started embroidery :)

God bless you!

Welcome! I enjoy learning languages too, currently trying to learn French. The pronunciation is difficult, but enjoying it. Let me know if you have any language learning tips, best wishes!

Hello KC,

I'm sorry to hear about your struggle but it seems that is the unfortunate side effect of working in one of those types of environments. I read that you are considering teaching English online. Are you getting a certificate in TEFL/TESOL? Either way I wish you the best of luck!

What other languages do you speak?

God bless!

Hi Misty,

Yes, I've recently discovered Duolingo as a helpful daily app and I know they have French as a course. I also like using Quizlet for flashcards and memorizing vocabulary. Other than that, I suppose it depends on how serious you want to be in dedicating your time in it and what level of proficiency you are at currently. I find learning the language in different avenues like movies, music, news, prayers, short stories is helpful. If you have someone to practice with, that's also definitely helpful! Bonne chance in your Français :)
