Much later down the line after 10 years in an inter-faith marriage her curiosity was piqued when she began to notice the differences that came as a product of each lifestyle, in particular, regarding the upbringing of children. Around the same time her husband started to draw closer to his own religion, Islam. Determined not to lose her volition, Ellen decided to follow suite. Subsequently Ellen found herself questioning the ideals she devoutly knew to be true. She recalls a specific incident in the Catholic church she experienced upon rejoining. The declaration of faith which she had known by heart since a young child - had changed! Horrified, she set herself upon a learning journey only to be pleasantly surprised each time she challenged her preconceptions about the words of the Quran and the intricacies of Islamic belief. So much so did her new found love and trust for Islam begin to grow. Her husband and her relocated their family to Egypt with the intention of pursuing an Islamic lifestyle and learning Arabic.
