The Bible clearly says we should not be yoked together with unbelievers. That doesn't mean we avoid them, just not get involved to the point where their ways could corrupt our morals (I Cor. 15:33). We should constantly be in prayer that our kids choose someone who shares their faith.
Your article is full of honesty and wisdom. Well written with great food for thought!
Blessings, Lynda

This is such an honest article and any right thinking parent would want to see that his children find mates who have the love and fear of God and would treat them in a Christian manner. I don't think you're a bigot. You've given up being self-centred, that's all.
What I enjoyed most about this piece was the heartfelt love for the daughter, starting to think ahead so you can be prepared on how to talk to her. But then you took it one step further and showed how your own life affected this decision for your child. You were there in the wrong path and every parent wants their child to be better than them...Good job

You echo so many thoughts of raising children as Christians. Your daughter is blessed and God hears your thoughts and prayers. May God bless you and your family.
A beautiful testimony of love and growth in faith. May God continue to bless you as you bless others with your honesty and wisdom. You are an example of true selflessness. Yours in Christ's name, ladybug Karen
