I am a born again Christian.I was always drawn to crosses and God.Like I have said before. I was raised by parents who do not believe in God.Now that I have found my faith. I do come across struggles.The main one is that my husband isn't an active anything. When we met he said he was an atheist.Now he claims to believe in God from the birth of our firstborn.(The miracle of life.) That's all fine and dandy.As far as our children go.I want them to know and love God as I do.I am afraid if they see him not going to church. They will feel forced.Which will defeat why I want them to go in the first place.What would you do?How would you handle it?
Let them know both of your view points and maybe come up with a plan to combine both of your feelings. Maybe take them to church but not every time you go and maybe ask your DH if he can come sometimes.I do that with my DH. When he wants to go, I go too. He also respects my feelings. If you make church and your beliefs interesting and meaningful and set an example for your kids, you will influence them and when they are old enough, they can make the decision to go every Sunday or not. Your beliefs should be part of your home too. I loved my Sunday School when I was a kid. My dad went to church but my mom instilled my beliefs in me and always taught me everything I needed to know.
I am not sure how old they are but kids praise music was important to me when I was young.

Take them to church and teach them about your faith, but you must allow your husband equal rights. They will either believe or they won't, the best thing you can do is support them and love them.
