My fear was real for me, I had Hagiophobia- fear of saints or holy things.
I was deathly afraid of anything that had to do with anything holy or religious.
Going to my future mother in laws house was a dreaded event. She had religious things everywhere.
She found me Energy Therapy to read and I did finally give in and overcome my fear. In overcoming my fear brought me closer to the family that I will soon belong to. I know longer find excuses not to go to her home. I am even getting married in a church and she is happy about that as well.
