So - I'm reading pub 526.
And I think I have some mileage in a grey area.
If I go with my family to church, and the whole time we're there, my wife is manning the nursery/teaching sunday school, I think that it's deductible. (If I'm reading the pub wrong, please correct me)

But if that's only 10% of her time, and the rest is in the worship service, I think that isn't deductible.
What if it's 50-50? or 30-70?

It's not a big $ amount either way - but it is something that seems unclear to me.
