Carl said: “It was very cute and sincere and I was able to tell him what apparently many of us adults still need to hear: feelings are great.
“They are important. But they are not the dominant factor in how we live our lives!”
Eventually, Roman decided to go to church with the rest of his family and told his dad Carl he was happy about his choice.
