I have a secret, I’ve been hiding, under my skin. Wait! That’s Mr. Roboto.
I’ve kept my religious beliefs quiet until now and the fact is my husband and I just aren’t religious….my hubby more so than me.
While I was growing up, my family didn’t really have many religious beliefs but my husband’s family is very religious. That’s not to say I don’t respect people’s religious beliefs.
Because my husband is in the military, people seem to just assume that we think a certain way. Military co-workers assume we’re very conservative in our thinking but it’s just not true.
I want my daughter to respect and understand that not everyone thinks the same and that’s okay. I don’t believe that there’s a “wrong” religion or a “right” way to live your life.
The times I’ve been comfortable going to church is when my husband and I would go to the Universal Unitarian church. We might start going again but honestly, I love to sleep in on weekends.
My husband and I are neither Rebublican or Democrat. I guess you can say we’re independant.
As my daughter get’s older, I’ve been trying to figure out how to answer questions she may have about religion. To be honest, I have no fucking clue what I’m going to tell her.
The main thing I want for my daughter is for her to be a good person who respects others’ faith as well as a difference in peoples beliefs and lifestyle. Whether people are Atheist, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, etc., I want to teach my daughter that it’s not okay to hate because someone has different beliefs than her.

When it comes to religion and spiritual beliefs, what are you teaching your children?
