How Islam Taught Me To Be Grateful: Ups And Downs On A Journey To Becoming Muslim (USA)

In today's episode we are speaking with Mysti Alamro, an English teacher from the United States who reverted 23 years ago from Catholicism.

Although her reversion has cost her in some ways, Mysti talks to us about how much more she has gained by being a Muslim.

Islam helped her through many ups and downs on her journey and gave her the strength to carry on through child loss, immigration struggles and heartache.

Learn how being mindful of the blessings in your life can transform the way you live and love.
