A Return On My Investment

My stepdaughter Sweetie (8) goes back and forth between two homes. For the five years I've been mothering her, I've been trying to teach her about God and develop her character, but there are competing influences. Today, she told me about a conversation with her friend.
Jenny said she has powers. She said she can make weather. But I said, "No, God makes the weather!" And she said witches are real. But I said, "No, they aren't. God is real!"

My efforts are not in vain!
