Returning To Christ

I grew up as a Christian. I was raised in a very religious home, attended Christian schools etc. When I was in high school, my family decided to stop attending church and turned to TV evangelists. Then about ten years ago, my family embraced non christian views. I followed along, but I regret it. My parents never fully accepted the non christian way of life and held on to their christianity some what. However I married a person who does not accept any christian views. My life has been very isolated. i am now a "closet" Christian. I can never out right say Ive returned to Christianity due to possible back lash. Social networking sites have really help me reconnect with Christian friends. I hope to get to know all of you..if any of you left christianity and returned..give me a shout....

I know my mum has struggled all her life as she is a born-again christian but my dad is an atheist! It has never been easy but mum has always prayed and found God led her and blessed them both. Hang on in there. Try reading some books too, Francine Rivers is a great author who writes fiction in real life situations. Can you find a local group of Christians around an interest - eg knitting circle or sport group or something, any where you can go where you can share openly?
