Survey Finds That Mothers Are Influencing Children for Christ More Than Fathers

Christians are far more likely to say their mothers had a bigger influence on their faith than did their fathers, according to a new Barna study that examines the roles that moms and dads play in the development of children.

The study found that 68 percent of U.S. Christians who grew up with someone who influenced their faith say their mother’s faith impacted them. That was followed by the father (46 percent) and a grandparent (37 percent).

The research was conducted in 2018 and is part of a new book, Households of Faith.
