My husband is in a new job which is pretty demanding on his brain but honestly, it's been three months and some days he says he's "bored" at work. FIne by me. But I've been afraid to bring up our spiritual life for fear of coming off like a nag. His work environment is very...macho and rough. Even though he's been a Christian for five years, I don't see any progress in his walk with Christ and he certainly doesn't initiate family devotions, express concern in how to teach our daughter (7 mos) about prayer or spirituality, or ask me how I am doing spiritually. It's not that he doesn't care. He just didn't grow up a Christian so I think he's at a loss for how to lead, or to even know that he should.
We've just joined a church in our new town and even a small group from the church, but all at my request. The only time he prays is saying grace at supper, and even then, it's virtually the same each day.
How can I bring this up in a loving way? It's gone on so long that I know I will lose it once I start talking and I don't want him to get defensive. I try to give him the space to do it on his own, but he seems to only care about doing other stuff instead.
Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
