Does your family think you are crazy for having the beliefs that you do?
I grew up in an atheist home and my family doesn't believe in God, which is fine with me I don't try to convert them or shove anything down their throats. But I am close with my family and I love them. When we spend the night at their house we always take our children to another room to say our evening prayers before bed and we never eat without giving thanks. We don't compromise because they don't believe, if that makes sense.
We are Catholic and by that I mean we are REALLY Catholic, we follow all the teachings of the church to the best of our ability and that includes the teachings on birth control. My family just can't stop harassing me about always being pregnant and bare foot in the in kitchen. My mother thinks that I'm a slave to my husband and that going to church on Sundays is burden and an inconvenience. We have tried to explains our faith but I think their hearts are hard (for lack of a better term). It's not like we are the Duggars or anything, we know how to space our children in a responsible way.
I guess I'm just looking for others who can share their experiences and give me some encouragement.
