About Woven

Produced by the Metropolis of Atlanta's Family Life Ministry, “Woven” is the first book of its kind in the Orthodox world and caters towards the many challenges modern teenagers face. With five main chapters and a sixth reflection-based chapter, “Woven” discusses topics such as creation, emotions, self-image, social media usage, friendship, and relationships. Each chapter is in full color and interactive featuring illustrations, journaling opportunities, activities, discussions, and relations back to scripture and the lives of the saints.

Written and organized for use within a group environment, “Woven” is complete with a facilitator’s guide that will be made available for download here.

"Woven" has been a work in progress for the last three years. Paula Marchman, head of Family Life Ministry, approached two of her writers, Edna King and Zoë Pappas, to write an interactive book for Orthodox teenage girls.

"Woven" began to take shape and the team of three realized that in order to have a truly beautiful and interactive book, they needed to bring artists on board. Zoe Kafkes and Sheila Aldridge joined the team in January 2017 and after a year of hard work, are proud to say that Woven has been completed and surpassed what they thought it would be when the project began back in 2015.
