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.

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. #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

    4. 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.

    5. 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. 🙂

    6. 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.

    7. 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. 🙂

    8. My parents keep telling me i am too old for veggie tales(i am 13) but i always tell them that veggie tales is the best thing ever! No matter how old you are!! Its the christian version kf disney!!!

    9. One year, my dad took me out for dinner at a Bob Evans by our church before the daddy daughter dance. He had to use the restroom, and he didn’t want to leave me alone. A group of about 6 people who apparently were grandparents sat behind us. We were in shock at the opportunity God had given us as we watched them pray. I ended up chatting their ears off about the dance while Dad was in the bathroom, but they didn’t seem to mind. My father ended up paying for their meal as a surprise gift, and we went to the dance. It is amazing what can happen if you just wait for God to work on it.
