But he remained interested in religion and was searching. At the age of 21 years he went to Indonesia for work. This changed his life forever. He saw Islam from the roots. Chris was impressed by the deep belief that is rooted in the life of the Muslims. One of the reasons he converted was because of the direct connection to God Islam offers. He said he didn't take a new religion but he completed his religion. He found inner peace. https://www.muslimcoach.org/english/about-muslim-coach/

Crystal Joseph always grew up knowing God. At a young age (as early as 10 years old) her feelings towards the church changed. She started to follow her gut instinct that it was all wrong. Finally she felt that Christianity was a block between her and her creator. After leaving the church she went through a stage of conforming to society. This included not knowing an answer to the questions of faith and not seeking one either. Going through this she felt drained. Crystal tried Buddhism and meditation while still believing in God. She stated that in England people tend to mix and match and try to make their own answers to questions about God as you go along. She needed something. The turning point for her was at the age of 21, she visited Egypt. She heard the Quran for the first time and felt like this was real life. A visit to Mt Sinai was one of her first spiritual experiences of Islam. At the same time she was learning about the scientific proofs in the Quran. Crystal was getting black and white answers to all her questions. In this episode Crystal also tells us about her workshop named "Surviving and Thriving - My First Year after Shahada". It is a free interactive workshop for reverts to help them through their first year of Islam. She hopes to launch it soon this year. We will keep you posted here for further details.

Gina shares the truth about Islam and the reason why the Quran is misunderstood. She explains why you should never believe what you hear on the media and news. This is an amazing story told by a woman who is not yet officially Muslim. Gina is 59 years old and lives in rural USA Mid West (2020). She says that growing up here, there are no other choices in religion, we are just born Christian with no choice. Gina became disillusioned with the Christian faith when it started being used as a tool for hate around 2016, stirring up hatred against Muslims and Islam. With the rising of Donald Trump she looked at all faiths but decided Islam was the truth. She got some leaflets from Islamic outreach workers at a festival. Gina started reading these leaflets about Islam and it was logical and made sense to her. Then she started reading the Quran and realised that the Quran was misunderstood by her people due to Islamophobia and that people were saying disparaging things about it. Gina was also amazed about the big bang theory in the Quran, and that the virgin birth and Jesus are also mentioned there. After this she started giving out copies of the Quran and giving talks on what Islam the Quran really are. She started visiting Muslims and was amazed by the people and the way they treated her and the way they acted. They had kindness and sense of community, the way they took care of each other and the joy that they have and their happiness. She said that they were the kindest people she has ever met. Gina is waiting for her husband to agree to convert before she makes an official conversion with him. She believes he will make the decision to convert in good time.
