our college daughter is getting ready to throw it all away. Dual degrees, top of her class at major university, athlete. Recently joined a church that her roommate (her only friend) got her into that promotes the church community as her family and that nonmembers will not be saved. Has a boyfriend from that church (7-8 weeks now) that wants to go to a seminary. Now she wants to take any, that is, ANY job there that will support him thru it, and thinks she must struggle financially to be humbled before God. She was not a religious person before these friends and church. She was going to be a lawyer and changed her mind after this new boyfriend arrived 2 months ago. She doesn't believe us that she is codependent, insecure, always seeking approval from others, suffocating people w/ her efforts to do all she can for them (no friends). She is my stepchild, her mother abandoned her, but not her brothers, 6+ yrs ago. Everytime she comes home, she starts to be the girl we all know to have a good head on her shoulders, but when she goes back to school and is w/ the friends and church, she forgets rational thinking and says "I don't want to leave my friends and the church. I feel good when I'm w/ them" I just don't want to let her fall prey to these people. Her personality is so different these last few months. Any suggestions?

Wow...I bet you are beside yourself with worry for her.
Change of personality? No drugs are involved?
It seems really sudden to want to throw it all away for a new found boyfriend and religion.

I have a friend whose daughter joined a cult....so I might suggest you get more information on this religion.
Keep being there for her. She needs your love and support probably more now.

Go over and go to church with her.....

even if she finishes school they can stilll struggle financially....

don't push it...

if she is an "adult" you don't want to lose her....

just don't pay for anything you don't "have" too.
