“But with my beliefs, I don’t force them. But they know that Dad can’t start the day without praying, can’t read my scriptures or start the day without going to the moon. ”
“And hopefully, instead of forcing them, they’ll say, ‘OK, if it works for Dad, maybe it’ll work for us,’ and they’ll gravitate towards it themselves,” Walberg added.
He expressed the same sentiment to ET, saying, “But I do not want to force them to do this because I think they can disturb it and push it back. So, I’m just trying to be an example and try to show them that it works for all the good things that have happened in my life, including theirs and theirs, God has given me, when I was ready for it and ready for it. “
“Father Stew” will hit theaters on April 13
