I have discovered that my mother and I are the only believers in God in my family. I do not know what to do. How should I approach people with that subject on God and belief?

Do not despair, and never give up on preaching God to others. Remember that as a Christian you are commissioned to witness to the Lord. Prayer is the best help, make it a point to pray daily that God would give you the courage and the right words to use when talking to your family. On every occasion talk about your experiences with the Lord and the great things He did for you personally or for other Christians you know. Let them see how living with the Lord and believing in Him makes a difference in your life. The Holy Bible says "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven" (Mt 5:16). Do not make them feel you are pushing them to accept Christ. Always remember that loving words attract but critical words repel. Pray that our Lord Jesus Christ use you for His ministry and for the Holy Spirit to guide you and put the right words in your mouth for the glory of God.
