I am looking for someone to talk to that has had similar experince or is going through something similar. Here is my situation.
I am a Christian, I love God and i want my daughter raised this way. My husband doesn't believe in God, something I was not really aware of until recently. He goes to church with me, but I know he gets nothing out of it. My daughter is 13 months now, but I can already forsee issues. He is fine with me taking her to church and teaching her my faith etc. He will tell her his if she asks. I told him that is he is going to be negative about church I would rather him not go with us because I don't want her to get that from him. He feels he was forced to go as a child and doesn't want to go. I told him I would never make him go becasue I can't force him to believe.
So far it isn't a fight or anything, he isn't against me raising her in church and doesn't care if she belives in God or not. I know the day will come when she is going to ask about Daddy, and I am prepared because my father never went to church either. I just feel like I am alone in raising my child to know the Lord and to be a Christian and it is very very important to me. I pray for him and for my daughter all the time and I just have to hope that God will take care of the rest.
I don't want to get bashed for my beliefs so please don't comment if you are going to do that. I just hope to find someone to give me some encouragement.
