Shereen Sharif, a former Muslim shares her story about how she found Jesus in the midst of life's stuggles. In her own words, "My life is so much more fulfilling . . . in Jesus Christ, I have found true joy and satisfaction, a life worth living, and a real Father who loves me so much more than I could ever love Him. I thank God for what He has done in my life—and for calling me His daughter."

My name is Shereen Sharif. I was born in Vancouver, Canada into a Muslim family. Although we participated in a few religious events, my family was not very religious. I am the only Christian in my family and the story that follows recounts how I found Jesus. I have always believed in ''god'' and that, ultimately, all gods are really only one, even if they are worshipped differently. When I was young, my mom took us to churches and temples in addition to mosques. I feel now that the reason my mom went to so many different religious houses was because she was in search of the one true God, which, despite her searches, she still hasn't found. This influenced my life as I started looking for answers in all the wrong places. I started believing in palm readers and astrologers because they seemed to be able to tell me significant things about my life.
