From Islam To Christianity And Back to Islam

Not too long ago, I was watching an interesting interview with a woman who left Islam for Christianity but came back to it by the mercy of Allah. Her entire story of how she left Islam to what led her back was fascinating to hear. While the woman’s story was just all around amazing, something she said about her father and how he reacted to her leaving Islam caught my attention. The interviewer asked her about how her family, specifically how her parents reacted when she finally admitted to them that the rumors she left Islam for Christianity was true. […]

That’s how I know which books are their favorites. My children are five years old and under so we are not reading any chapter books yet. The type of […]

Beautiful Patience

A Muslim mother sent me a message. This sister lost her child of only five months, a beautiful, healthy baby girl who she loved dearly; her beloved baby died suddenly in her sleep. She asked me why there aren’t many support groups for the grieving mother who’s lost a child due to SIDS, miscarriage or whatever else. My only answer was it’s one of those things people just don’t think about until they go through it themselves. In life, we all have different struggles and challenges. Losing a child is one of the greatest trials in life. Only those who […]

4 Educational Shows for Children

While I don’t think babies should ever be exposed to any sort of screen time, I think for children over the age of three it’s OK if they sometimes watch a nice kid’s show that’s educational and entertaining at the same time. There are hundreds of different kid’s shows to choose from on TV and online but choosing a good show and videos for our children to watch is not as easy as we may think. I don’t want my child to be wasting 30 or even an hour of his time sitting and watching something where he will not […]

We can all agree as parents we want our children to be the best. We want them to walk, talk and learn the same time as other children their age. We even want them to do better than their peers so we push them to try harder and pressure them so much. And if we see our children being a little behind on some things whether it is learning to read or whatever else, many of us start to panic because we compare them to other children their age and wonder why our children aren’t at the same level as […]
