Orthodox Christian Life Assessment/Inventories
These Assessment/Inventories are means to assist priests, pastoral counselors, life coaches, and individuals. They are tools for spiritual growth and should not be considered a formal diagnosis or therapeutic analysis.
The Assessment/Inventories use quantitative and qualitative approaches. Orthodox spiritual life really isn’t quantifiable. Therefore, the numbers are only meant to stimulate discussion and assist you in your journey. True self-knowledge comes through pursuing the ascetical and liturgical life in the Church. In Orthodoxy, we tend not to use numbers or black and white viewpoints to examine someone. Instead, it comes through prayer, spiritual counsel, and watchfulness. Individuals should strongly consider working with a Spiritual Father/Mother or pastoral counselor if they choose to use these tools for personal growth.
Your Assessment/Inventory is yours and yours alone. It is completely confidential. No one at Matrona Ministries will be able to see your results. Once you have finished your inventory, you will be able to download and save your confidential report. You can send your report to anyone you wish. We will not keep your report, email or answers tied to them. We will only add your data, anonymously, to the overall database to understand macro trends among the faithful.
Each Assessment/Inventory can assist you to look at life with an Orthodox Christian lens. Both soul and body are important in Orthodox spiritual life, and these inventories take a similar holistic approach.
The assessments are all free of charge.
