| | Re: Like to hear from divorcee's age 40+ with young kids/religion problems please...
My kids are old enough to decide how and how much religion is going to play a role in their lives...neither their mother or me have much say in it now...we did raise them with a foundation toward religion (Catholic) so they would have a basis of knowledge so when it came time for them to decide, when they questioned their faith, they could make some educated decisions...my daughter doesn't attend services much, she is 22...my 2 sons are pretty spiritual, but go to Christian services (20 and 16)...I am proud of each of them because they are making their own choices, not doing this because they were raised to do so...
I tend to be more like my daughter, I go to Church sometimes, pray some...but I find closeness to God while I'm out in nature...My wife is more like my son's and has madeit clear that if we are together, we need a more spiritual life together...I can't argue with that and will go with her to services on sunday, and she has agreed to walk with me in the woods to pray...
I still haven't decided on which direction my faith will take, traditional Roman Catholic as I was raised, or the more modern Christian faith celebrations...
