I’m posting today over at A Deeper Family about parenting in a mixed faith home.
We also did all of the things that we were supposed to do as Christian parents. We took them to church. We stood in front of our congregations and promised to raise them in the Christian faith. We did AWANA and VBS. We took the Christian parenting class.
Then things changed. Jason is no longer a believer. It took us a while to talk to the kids about this change, but at this point, they all know. And while it was one thing to ask the kids to continue to attend church when Jason was in school and working nights and was just “too tired” to go, it’s quite another thing to ask this of them when it’s not something that both of their parents do.
As a result, our kids have been attending church much less regularly. One doesn’t go at all. One isn’t sure they even believe any more.
I’d love it if you’d stop over and read the rest.
