The parents among us

I’m curious as to which *cino posters have children? Sometimes I’d like to talk about parenting as a Christian in today’s society, but don’t feel as though it would be of enough interest to enough people. So, I’m taking a poll … who has children and what are their ages?

Me, I’ve got a 2-year-old named Gus (Augustus).

Oh…thank God we are not alone! Joy and I have two little boys: Levi 3 and Benjamin 2.

I also have a daughter from a previous marriage: Covenant 7.

Oddly enough, my husband and I recently thought Levi would be a great name for our next child (when we get around to it and if it’s a boy)!

I have two teenagers:
John is 18 and a senior.
Katie is almost 16 and a sophomore.
There are some similarities between toddlers and teenagers!
Good idea…go for it!

Had two foster daughters for six months, Monica (3)and Olivia (5, 6 when they went home to their mom). We’ve kept up with them and their mom asked us to be their godparents, which we graciously accepted. Monica (now 7) is staying with us this week for Spring Break.

Fostering is not the same as parenting, but comes with it’s own set of joys and challenges. But the wife and I would like to have kids when the Lord provides and so I would be interested in any parenting type topics.

Hi, Geoff here, soon to be 48, but with the mental capacity of an 84 year old – life has taken its toll!

I have a son Mark, who is 19. He is on a gap year at the moment and wants to become a screen-writer.

My daughter, Brittany, not to be mistaken for Britney, she of the faith dilemma. Brittany is 14, is about to do her SATs and has decided that in future she’d like to be involved in Fashion or Beauty!

Do any parents out there in *cinoland feel that it is difficult to get across a christian perspective to their kids, beyond going to church, praying etc? My daughter finds the church youth group is a turn off becuase all they they talk about is prayer, reading the Bible and God’s ability to heal! A lack of application perhaps beyond our internal/personal spirituality? There are times when sadly I think that I’ve missed the boat with my two angels(!), but wondered if anyone has difficulty expressing the creation, fall and redemption narrative of scripture. Y’know, that Jesus is Lord of all Creation and how they develop a christian perspective on screenwriting and fashion!
