  • Is he uncomfortable with having it done at the church, or with them just being blessed at all, or what? Not too many people do this, but if you want to, the blessing can be done in your home (or another place he is comfortable). I personally would just explain to him that the blessing does not do anything to commit them to be/do certain things, it is a blessing. Your child can be blessed with health, and things like that. One thing that might help is to bring him to church and let him see someone elses child getting blessed. That way at least he'd know what it really entails, which may make him more comfortable with the idea. Hope you guys can work this out. Sorry its a struggle!!

  • Just say its important to you. Its not like its going to hurt them. If he has no passion on the subject, what does it matter. He's just putting his foot down for the sake of it.

  • My husband and I also went through this same thing. Im not active and hes a completely different religion. I explained to him basically what the previous poster said, that its a blessing to aid him and us as parents, its not obligating him to join that church or live a certain way. We both made a compromise, our son could be blessed if I gave in on something that he wanted. It worked for us. We ended up having him blessed at home by my ward's bishop who is a good friend of my family.
