I have a big family of 6, but for the longest time, it’s just been me and my mom going to church together every Sunday. I love that because I get to talk to her in the car. I can’t really talk to her at home because my dad is always around. Many times he has tried to get involved in the conversation but ended up yelling at me for something I wasn’t even talking about, so I wait till Sundays or usually post something on here. Anyway, my dad has recently started coming to church more often and it’s so weird to see him there. He’s always on my brother who’s an atheist and hates anything Christian to go too. I don’t like it when they’re there because I feel like they are always judging me. And my brother always tries to stand really close to me so I have no room to walk. At home we always make weird awkward eye contact and he stares at me. My parents and him are talking about him doing the media at church so he’ll be there even more. Can you please help? I feel awful I don’t want them there. I was born with a hearing loss and wear hearing aids. Both my dad and my brother have never liked me, they have told me they think my hearing aids are stupid and my brother makes really mean jokes about me at dinner sometimes. He says he’s “just kidding” but it just seems meaner because we’re not even friends and he won’t ever talk to me. Back to my dad, it’s like he’s suddenly trying to be a good role model and talking about God and telling me things I already know. The only role models have been my other brother, my mom, friends, and other people in the church. I guess I just feel like my dad is trying to do something just to “look good”. He’s also mean to me sometimes and always tells me I need to work on my social skills and that I have no friends and of course, yells at me. I don’t like them because they make me hate myself. My mom always says my brother is nicer to me than I am to him, but it might actually be the other way around. He won’t even accept my friend request on Facebook, even though he goes on a lot. He lies to my mom and says he doesn’t go on. Did I do something to make him not like me? And why is my mom always trying to make me feel really bad about it when I’ve done everything I could to make it better. With my other brother, it’s much easier and I can talk about God with him, laugh and have conversations. I did have some issues when I was little and sometimes didn’t know things when I should. I grew up a lot since then but I don’t get why he was so patient with me and still loved me so much when my other brother in my opinion, wanted nothing to do with me and pretty much never forgave me. I never even meant to hurt him. I just learned things when I did. While I was growing up, everyone else was so patient with me. Do you know why this was? And also, why do I have to have this learning disability? Just look what it did to me and my brother and it has made other people who were so sweet and loving towards me eventually stop being my friend. It might also make a guy never like me. Advice please? It is greatly needed and appreciated!

Hopefully your dad and brother will be influenced in church and be saved. In life we’re going to be mocked for our faith, some even killed. Regardless of how your family treats you, never stop praying for them and show them love. If your dad and brother truly see Christ in you, they might come to know Him. As for your learning disability, God can use it for your good. If everything were perfect, we’d never grow. Here are some verses that may help: John 16:33, Matthew 6:14-15, Luke 14:12-14
