I'm only 20 with four kids. But before anyone judges me all my child hood has been in and out of foster homes full of sexual abuse. My first child is a rape baby and I have been having sex with whoever asked simply because I felt they respected me because they asked. As you can see I have/had many problems. I recently accepted Jesus christ as my Lord and savior but the fathers of my kids arent exactly on board. How do I teach my kids my new beliefes without confusing them?Answer Question

The best way to teach your children it to be an example. Live your life in your new faith and be open about your beliefs and tell them all about it. Find a great church and take them to Sunday school. It will become second nature after a time and you won't even realize you are teaching them.

Live your beliefs. If you are Christian this also means aspiring to love (in the true sense of "Love" - "caring" - NOT lust) everyone around you. Strive to forgive and let God heal you, and share your journey in a loving way with your children. Talk with them honestly but always lovingly, thinking of what they can and should understand of what you are experiencing, and sharing their experiences. Don't be afraid to share your humanity.
Please keep in mind, the journey of faith isn't a straight ascent. It is more like a roller-coaster. You are going to go through periods of doubt, though there are times of such faith this seems impossible. Sometimes it seems easy. Other times it is a struggle. You need to keep trusting God to guide you - although that is sometimes the hardest thing to do. He will get you through the difficult times and the joys beyond them are even greater than before. God bless you and your family.
