I am happy to write to you. My wife is not an ECKist. What can I do to avoid feeling resentful toward her when I go with my children to ECK activities without her?

Dear Saiba,

It can be very hard when a husband and wife follow separate religions. The blessing in your home is that she lets your children accompany you to ECK events.

You can’t control your wife, only yourself. Know that resentment is a form of anger, whose antidotes are forgiveness and tolerance. So they are what you can practice to restore harmony to your home.

These spiritual disciplines are often difficult, but they can be ever so fruitful.
