We will raise Emmalyn in the Christian faith. I hope to enroll her in a wonderful local Christian charter academy eventually. Joe is mostly just receptive to what I feel she should be taught about but I will approach it in the manner that it is up to her to decide what she believes and wants in life. I mainly like the school because they have a much bigger focus on more advanced academics and incorporate prayer and teachings of the bible into other subjects and have a much warmer and in my opinion safer environment than many local public schools here. You just don't see the bullying and fighting and cursing and drugs as much that you see at our local public schools once they get older. I think it is because everyone's parents paid to have them there and they can get kicked out in an instant for poor behavior so the ones that are there are the good ones

Thanks kiliki for my siggie!

DH is Catholic and I am Lutheran. We raise our children in the Catholic faith. All of our children that attend school go to a Catholic grade school and the oldest is in Catholic High School. The only one who is in public school is our 6 year old, Anna, and that is because she is in a wheelchair because of a spinal cord injury. We are hoping she can attend the Catholic grade school next year after she has surgery in September to help with bladder and bowel issues which will give her much more independence. I have considered converting and will probably do so in the next year or two.

He goes online to Southern Seminary. It's nice because we didn't have to move and he can keep working where he's at He just has to go up there a few times a year.

My husband and I are Christians (both our dad's are/were pastors, actually) but we're going to take the same approach as our parents did. We were raised going to church, but we were not in any way sheltered from the world. Our parents said they made an effort to lead by example rather than telling us what we had to be, and we were free to make our own choices and decisions on the matter.
