My 5 year old step-daughter lives with her mother in another state. They don't go to church but her mother has told us she knows that Jesus loves her. My husband and I are Christians and we want our children to grow up knowing about God's love. We want to raise them to have a relationship with Him. We pray for our girls every day but I still worry about what my step-daughter is being exposed to. How are we going to teach her about God when we have such limited time with her? I worry about her being taught that sex out of marriage is okay as long as you use protection or that she will be a single teen parent, especially since we recently found out/suspect that her mother is having an affair with a married man! How can we teach her that that is NOT okay?! Is there anything we can do besides pray for her? How do we teach her about Jesus?
