11 Signs That You Grew up in a Christian Home

When you grow up in a Christian home, you experience life a little differently than most. That is why we took to our Facebook page to ask you: what are some of the tell-tale signs that you grew up in a Christian home? Here’s what you guys had to say :

 

1. “Bibleman and Larryboy were your favorite superheroes.” – Hadley G.

 

2. “When you’re playing Monopoly and someone asks, “Do we have to pay tithe?” – Jordan S.

 

3. “Nearly all of the attractive guys were off limits because they weren’t Christian.” – Leanna H.

 

4. “When you look for your future husband, not a boyfriend.” – Jaelia F.

 

5. “Watching Veggie Tales is one of your earliest memories. ‘If you like to talk to tomatoes…'” – De’Nedra Fogg

 

6. “Newsboys, Stephen Curtis Chapman, Relient K and/or DC Talk were your favorite bands and you knew all the words.” – Olivia H.

 

7. “You literally lived at church.” – Emily P.

 

8. “As a senior in high school, you are still shocked at all the language and sexual context spoken about freely.” – Abagail B.

 

9. “You were only allowed to listen to the Christian station on the radio.” – Jocelyn K.

10. “Church was never an option. You go or you better be on death’s door.” – Laura S.

 

11. “Praying with your family in public restaurants when the food is brought out.” – Madison S.

Got anything to add to the list?

    #10 is so true!! My mom ran music, so if I was sick, she’d leave me in the car with someone from church while she ran the worship portion. Life of a PK 🙂

    You remember the first non Christian song you ever listened to…

    What about: you’re reading a book and then something really bad happens so you start praying for the character? It’s happened to me so many times before I realize it’s pointless. 🙂

    I can relate to “living at church.” Our church is like my second home and I love it that way!

    I still live at church. LOL. Like, four times a week at least. 🙂 If I were to add one I would add, When you went to Christian school Pre-K-8 and still have 9-12 to go and you go to high school week camp and want to yell at everybody to stop swearing but are just dumbfounded at the number of people who swear.

    Also, what if you grew up in a Christian home overseas? I know plenty of Christians from other countries who have never played monopoly 😉

    Numbers 3, 4, 5, and 11. Relatives on my mom’s side like to listen to contemporary Christian music, but my dad prefers older songs from the 70s and before. #1 isn’t true, could Aslan be considered a superhero???? To be honest, sometimes my family would much rather read the Bible at home or discuss topics from the Bible at home than go to church, even though we go pretty often. 🙂

    Also, I NEVER liked Bibleman. WE used to watch it all the time, but it was so lame. They tried to be too cool, and the Christians on the show were portrayed as really weird.

    Veggie Tales was my lifeeeee and I love Larry Boy still.
    And when I was a toddler, my mom and sisters had an obsession with DC Talk, so I know most of the words xD

    Just #2 and #11 for me. I couldn’t care less about the boyfriend/future husband one, and my parents don’t even go to church anymore. 😛 Almost none of these signs apply to me anyway as I’m used to the language and sexual content being discussed. My parents aren’t big on Christian music and force me to listen to classical music whenever the radio’s on, I have never played Monopoly in my life, my parents never pay attention to whether I have a crush on someone or not, I hated Bibleman and Larryboy with a passion, and I am not a fan of any of those Christian music artists you mentioned. *shrugs* Sorry.

    #6 – SCC and RK!!!! Yes!
    #7 – my friend said this to me once 🙂
    #8 – yeah, and in youth group sometimes people get really real and I want to cover my brother’s ears
    #11 – but this never bothers me, it’s just life

    Most of these are true for me but when I got to number 8 I gasped and was like “they so get me!” I just graduated from high school less than two weeks ago and that is most certainly true.

    I did literally grow up in church because my mom is staff 😛
    (I even have a cabinet with my name on it and all my toiletries and blanket and stuff inside!!)

    I loooved #5. I always watched Veggie Tales! But recently, and I assume this based on ads, they’ve added irises to the veggies’ eyes. Personally, the new Veggie Tales characters are a little creepy.
