Peanuts Creator Charles Schulz on Supporting Your Child’s Choice of Religion

by Robert John Stevens, November 3, 2015

This is another great quote and it touched me emotionally. There is a lesson here for all parents:

While Schulz did not believe in the LDS faith himself, he was always supportive of his daughter. When Johnson opened a full-time mission call a year and a half after she was baptized, she immediately went up to her dad’s office. She announced, “Dad, I got my mission call. I’m going to England.”

“He got up from his desk, walked around to where I was standing with his arms outstretched, gave me big hug and said, ‘Even Jesus didn’t get to go to England,’” Johnson remembered.
