Elizabeth, I know first hand how it feels to have a child turn away from God. One day, one of my five children told me, "I no longer believe in God." I was stunned and am not sure of my response. I made it a habit to pray every day tht God would bring my child back to Him. It took a couple of years but God answered when a pastor put a little devotional book by A. W. Tozer in my child's hands. While reading it one day my child wept saying, "I have been running from God for a long time." God does answer even if it's not in our lifetime. Blessings to you and I will pray for your children.
