Are you actively involved in your particular faith or religion at your house? Do you only celebrate certain holidays or is it a way of life for your family? Tell us a little bit about what kind of role your faith plays in your life and household.

Yes it is important... we pray before we eat dinner together as a family and before we go to bed and we try to go to church almost every sunday but hubby works sundays also so sometimes we miss it.  But anyway yes, very important.....

Religion does not play a important role in my house. Since my mother passing I learned to lean on God. I gain the strength to go on. I want my son to know about God and Jesus Christ.   I promise myself I will take my son to church only time will tell..............

             Yes.

Do you only celebrate certain holidays or is it a way of life for your family?

                 It is a way of life for us.

Tell us a little bit about what kind of role your faith plays in your life and household.

                    Faith plays a big role in our family, every night we say a prayer before dinner, we go to Church every Sunday, The kids go to Sunday School, and Travis our oldest goes to Confirmation class. My husband is the Head of our house, and I am his helpmeet. It use to not be such a prominent part of our family and over the past year it has, Kael and Dylan Got baptised, all 3 of the boy had their first communion and so did my husband,and my husband also got confirmed all in the same day!I am also now in the Choir and bell choir and I think Travis our oldest son is going to play bells as well.

Oh and they go to Vacation bible school every Summer, Last year was Travis's first time vollenteering and he loved it.

Religion is NOT a big dela in our house.. My oldest attends bible class at school and asks questions about Jesus and the bible, I answer but we don't preach religion at them,, I will let my children decide what they want for themselves in that aspect!

Religion is not important to us, but our faith is (yes, there IS a difference). We are christian. However we don't affiliate with any particular denomination. Faith is definitely essential, so it's a way of life for me and my family. We go through so much that we have to rely on God for EVERYTHING, no matter what. He is above ALL things!

I didn't grow up going to church, and my husband had a bad experience with organized religion--so going to church is just not a priority in our house.  We're Christian, but no particular denomination.  We'll discuss religion with our son, but we make it clear that he's free to form his own beliefs also.

 Religion is very important in my house.  It is a normal part of our way of life.  We attend church every Sunday and I am actively invoved with the running our our church and teach religious education.  For holidays, my boys know both the secular and religious meanings behind them.  Even the smaller holidays like St. Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's day, they know the religious meaning behind the holiday.
