One of the most important things to me was that whatever belief I have, i'd need a really solid intellectual foundation for that belief.
I came to a belief in Christianity first through reading, discovering history and philosophy and taking a really critical approach to science and reality and finding that among all the various beliefs, only in Christianity could i find the most consistent and logically rational belief that I could have. I'm now intellectually confident in my belief and apologetically have no problem providing consistent and rational answers to any questions on it.
However... although I really do believe, Christianity has my mind but not yet my heart.
I've come across many people who are the complete opposite, intellectually lacking in many of the core tenents and unable to answer most or even any objections because they've never considered it HOWEVER, they have a strong belief not founded on evidence and reason but a closer relationship.
I am trying to build my relationship with God as I know it's a progressive thing but often I don't pray until very necessary moments in life. Not as consistent as I should.
Can anyone relate and how did you build your relationship

I don't think young age to pray, I don't think that's a must. I would have thought a person of faith would be almost in constant communication with their deity. Like I am in constant communication with myself, questioning myself, talking to myself, pondering my hopes and aspirations and fears. I imaged faith was just the replacement of speaking to yourself about the mysteries of life with talking to a "supreme being" instead... that's just my understanding of it though, I've never heard someone of faith ever explain it to me. I would think having that constant dialogue going on would always help strengthen any relationship you have... but I don't know.0
