  1. I'm curious... how did you get your kids involved in church? I'd like to do this too but don't even know where to start!

    1. Well, I was raised in a Christian church and my hubby is a nonbeliever. We respect each other's opinions and I wanted my children raised with a basic understanding of faith and to learn morals a better way than I could teach them myself. So I sought out a friend who does a Wednesday night kid's bible class at a local church. I thought that would be the easiest way to get them started. Their first class was last night and they loved it.

    2. I think it is a great idea. We are the same (who would have thought that). My daughter goes to church with my MIL. She is an elder at her own church. We said they can go whenever they want too and when the change their minds ... it is totally up to them!
