I have seven god children, five girls and two boys. I am good at remembering them at birthdays and Christmas - but actually there is no real handbook. I am not as religious now as I was when I was given the role (so maybe I should have been sacked), so I don't honestly think I have done much for their spiritual welfare, but I would definitely be there for them if they needed me.
