I agree 100%

I began my Ba'al Tshuva journey at the age of 50. My kids, now 19 & 21 would roll their eyes at me every time I told one of my many hashkacha pratice stories. Last summer my son told me he didn't believe in G-d and would argue about evolution and free will, etc. NOW - he's at Ohr Sameach in Jerusalem, totally frum and with his own hashkacha pratice stories! It's a long story how this came to be, but like Lori said - it's never too late! Now I'm working on my daughter. Lots of davening! Lori - how about a trip for frum mothers with secular daughters??? Please???

terrific advice

Lori has such a nice non-judgmental way about her and I agree with this philosophy entirely. Davening to Hashem also helps when you want to make changes.Never give up, Hashem doesn't.

I will not give up.

I needed to hear this affirmation today. Thank you for addressing this difficult subject. I am a convert to Judaism in a family of non Jews, so I am always being challenged. Thank you again for saying, "Don't give up on your children, and especially, don't give up on yourself."
