I love by the way what Polycarp1 wrote for you, so simple and so true.
I am replying because you are asking if someone had a period of luke warmness. Well i did, i always prayed but i stop to go to the church regularly and the first thing i knew, i wasn't into Catholic faith anymore. Thanks to God, i finally came back to my sense and realize how wrong i was. Something started for a long time but when i got my daughter baptized, something in me started to grow back.
What you need to do is to start the Rosary. Pray as much you can, to maintain this bound with God. In the mid time, ask for Mother Mary intervention. Get books or dvd about the catholic teaching, Saints or anything that inspire you.
Once you have your root strong enough, your children will sense it. Don't give up talking with them and pray for them. Prayer and fast are so efficient. I one week fast and my husband started praying and months after he had the desire to convert to Catholic faith.
I am glad that you are carrying your cross with faith. It must be a very heavy one, i cannot imagine to be in your shoes but good for you for going back to church.
I pray for you and your children!
All such good advice. Thank you for that and for your story. That reminds me how strong the sacraments are.
