Faith is something I consider to be very important for my family. Not spirituality, not religion... Faith. Pure and simple.

My husband and I are Christians and we do believe that God gave his son Jesus Christ as a sacrifice for us to be with Him in eternity. We want our children to grow up and accept Christ as their savior and life a life according to His will.

But it's not as easy as I thought it would be. My eldest child right now hates to pray and sees Jesus and God as similar to sports mascots. Scary, strange people dressed in costumes. It's hard to explain that they are not costumed people when she can't see Them physically.

I'm not sure exactly how to combat this. We pray, we talk about God and Jesus..but like many things in life this is something the kids will just have to figure out on their own. And we can only pray that in time, they will come to love Christ the way their parents do.

Kevin tells me all the time how much he loves God and Jesus. However, he almost always refuses to pray. We talked about how God wants have a relationship with us and we need to talk to Him, but Kevin still refuses. On the other hand he also often says "Mom (Dad, Grandma, whoever the person of the moment is)I love you more than ANYTHING....except God" I think they will find their way as long as we teach them all we can and pray. In the mean time if you figure out how to get over prayer refusal let me know.
