I like your 3rd option. It shows you giving some room for out of town weekends, while still wanting to provide a constant and strong foundation for your daughter. Best wishes!

You don't mention how old your daughter is or what your relationship with her father is like. But if she's under 18, it seems like the discussion should be with her father - if possible. You've got to make sure that you and he are on the same page. And if church is not important to him, you've got to find some middle ground. If she's over 18, it's her responsibility to go or not. You can impress upon her how important it is to you, and keep your fingers crossed that she finds it important too.
