so my former stepdaughter( step from first marriage, raised her from 12 to college) is now engaged. she was a churchgoer thru high school(she is the one who got me going to church),. and once she went off to college... no more church or God. she has been living with her boyfriend the past two years... she was respectful, would have him gone when my daughter(her half sis) was over or over night. her birth mom was not around a lot and died about 7 years ago. the first thing she said was she was glad it wasnt me. Then i hurt her when i married my soon to be ex(who ended up molesting my daughter/her sister) by the way i handled some issues. Anyway. We are just getting close again. But i have the God issue that we havent discussed. She is one of those if it makes you happy, do it, kinda people. i want to try talking to her to see where she stands, but i keep getting this voice in my head to just love her and show her the love of Jesus and not to try to force anything. i am so touched that she still wants me in the mother of the bride role after all thats happened. this is such a weird deal. i feel like if i even open this can of worms now, it will put another rift there and she will be even less likely to respond. she knows where i stand and what i believe. i guess i just answered my own thought pattern/question there. i just want her and her fiance to be saved, yet dont pray like i should! ok ladies just wanted to get this off my chest cuz my friends dont get it....
