MATTHEW WEST-STRONG ENOUGH
Pls. pray for my family. Though I am a Christian, my husband is not. Nevertheless, our 3 daughter were raised in Christian churches. Unfortunately, now that our daughters are teens, two of them have decided to dismiss Christianity-- one for atheism and the other for wicca. We are also dealing with other issues with the same girls (suicide attempts, shoplifting, sex, lying,homosexuality, etc).
Certainly, our differing opinions regarding faith have impacted how my husband and I raise the girls-- and I feel so alone praying for the family by myself. I have actually quit going to church because it breaks my heart to sit there alone (our oldest daughter is away at college). I tried joining a small group but when I mentioned family issues I got a lot of judgmental comments ("Well you obviously didn't pray with them enough.").
