DH is an unpractising Catholic (usually won't admit that he is Catholic).
I am a semi-practising Lutheran. I love the stories (well most of them), I WANT to believe, but can't fully. I wish I could.. Honestly who wouldn't want to know, with their whole being, that when they die, they will go to such a wonderful place if they live their life right?
We do celebrate Christian holidays, DH & I know the Christian reasons for the holidays & I have passed that onto my children. All of our children are baptised Lutheran.
We really are not an very religious family. We don't go to church (except for family weddings, baptisms, funerals, etc). My DH thinks that if I take the kids to church, it's forcing a belief on them, he wants them to discover their own beliefs. I am fine with it, I think if a person finds their own faith it will be even stronger than one they were raised in.
Well last night as Easter came to a close, my 7 year old DD decided that she wants to go to church on Sundays now. I honestly have no problem taking her, if anything I really do like the sermons, even though I have a hard time believing everything I hear. So if she wants to go, I'm more than happy to go too.
Do you think 7 years is old enough to decide something like this? I haven't told DH yet, but hopefully he understands that DD asked, with no prompting from me.
