DH is not about to attend church on a weekly basis because he is wiped out from his job during the week and wants to relax on the weekends. And his way of relaxing is either sleeping, lying down while playing his video games, going off on his own or with friends to do whatever guy things he does, or we all go out as a family. His personality is also the type to be bored stiff listening to a sermon and sitting in a pew for 2 hours. He wouldn't really want to read the Bible I'm sure. He wouldn't really like to do stay at home things unless it has a clear purpose and a clear beginning and end to it, like a project (building a model airplane for example). He's the type to always want to go outdoors to somewhere, anywhere, as long as it takes him out of the house.
He does lead the family bedtime prayer which he says (almost) every night, but that lasts about 1 minute. He also joins in when we all say a short grace before dinner (like in, speaking Japanese, it'll be, "Kamisama, itadakimasu.") This is so insufficient in my opinion, especially for the kids' spiritual development!
I want us as a family to connect more with God but am wondering how to do it. DH is not against God, but grew up with no religion, so he doesn't know how to lead spiritually. He did become Christian as an adult, but then after several personal life experiences, he became more of a "Christian only in name" kind of person. I know *I* should be the one to pray about this, but I am severely flunking at this. Instead of being strong, I am being affected by his lack of participation, to the point that, for the past month, being so discouraged, I even stopped going to church myself with the kids.
Prayers also appreciated! Thanks!
