When Chris Christie first went to see his father on Christmas Eve, he had no idea what he was getting into.
But as the former New Jersey governor became more and more religious, he became a better believer.
As Christie’s faith grew, he began to see the world through different lenses.
“I realized there was a lot more than the traditional Christian faith that is important to me,” he said.
“It’s not just about the Bible, but it’s about the importance of the people that you love.”
Christie started attending church services in 2011, but he quickly found that he was also drawn to other faith traditions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, and the Sikh religion.
After spending several years in various faith communities, he said he eventually found a way to connect with his dad through his faith.
Christie said he has found a “way” to live life in harmony with his father, as a Christian.
“You get to a place where you can have peace in your life and a sense of belonging in your family,” he told ABC News.
“When you can see that the world is a bigger place, and that the other people aren’t going to take you for granted and that people are going to treat you with dignity, it’s not about being different, it is about embracing the world.
And the more you embrace it, the better you’re going to be.”
Christies wife, Heidi, is a Hindu, and she said her father has embraced the same spiritual practices and values that they do.
Christies father, Christie, is known for his devout Christian beliefs, including a religious holiday called Diwali.
The day of the holiday was known as a Hindu feast day, and Christians observed the Hindu festival of Bharat Mata Puja, which commemorates the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Christy said that he enjoys watching the celebration and the “spiritual connection” between Hindus and Christians.
Christians embrace Diwalya, the Hindu feast, as they celebrate Bharat, India’s biggest festival of the year, on Nov. 24, 2017 in New York City.

Christina and her husband have been married for more than 30 years, and they have four grown children.
They say they love their family and their faith, and want to keep it that way.
“We love the Lord, we love our God, we have faith in Him and we have hope,” Heidi said.
Christi’s son, Ben, said that it is his job to keep his father grounded and to help him see the good in the world, and in himself.
“It’s about letting him see what’s really important in life, and what he can do for himself, and how he can be good to his family and his country,” he explained.
Christied said that his father has always been a hard worker and always has a smile on his face, even when it comes to the tough times in his life.
Christief’s wife, Christie’s wife Heidi, has been a practicing Buddhist for years.
She said that she has often felt that her father was a better person for his faith and that he has always kept it a secret.
“He is a really great Christian.
I don’t think anyone would ever question him,” Heidi Christie said.”
The fact that he’s a Christian and he still is and he’s doing what he’s been doing, that’s incredible,” she added.
Christijans mother, Mary, is also a practicing Christian.
She believes that her husband is a better father because of his faith, even if it comes at a cost.
“Chris Christie’s father was not like this at all.
He had a very religious upbringing,” Mary Christie said, adding that her son has always respected his father.
