My teen chooses the Lord

Bruce, my 13 yr. old son, is scheduled for Confirmation this year. However, the process requires that this be his decision, not mine. There'll be interviews to ascertain that. Last night, I had a talk with him and told him that it is alright to delay it if he is not ready. I removed any pressure on my part saying that this has to be his choice now. He decided to move forward with the program. Today, we're submitting forms, retreat permits, Baptismal certificates to the program director. There are lots of steps and activities e.g. community service, picking a name, writing about a saint etc. Even if it is a pain, in a way I like it because it highlights various aspects of our life in Christ.
