Choosing, Not Losing Religion

Moms LA is running a piece I just wrote about being in an interfaith marriage.

 

Moms LA is run by two very supportive women, Yvonne Condes and Sarah Aureswald. Their site focuses on Life in LA, which can be a challenge for anyone, but especially for those of us trying to raise kids here.

Raising kids in LA sure is unique. Look at my husband urban camping with our son a few years back in the heart of the Hollywood hills. They made it until 8:30PM. Don’t try this on the 4th of July in the city.

My piece is titled “Choosing My Kids’ Religion.” Yes, a little nod to R.E.M. there. Now it’s in your head, here you go.

Anyways, for those of you moms treading through the tricky waters of raising kids in homes with multiple religions you might enjoy some ways we are doing it. This was a harder piece to write then I thought. I felt judged writing it in the solitude of my home office, ha!

At any rate, Happy Holidays mamacitas.
