I am an American, Forty-something mother, married to an Egyptian, Fifty-ish man for more than a decade. I have muddled my way through the Islamic community in my Midwestern town now for as long as I’ve been married, and I am hoping to help other women, like me, navigate through a little easier.   This blog is about living an Islamic Life and Parenting Muslim Children, your own way.

Comments are by approval.

This includes any of my places on social media. I’m on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Tumblr.

Its frustrating to me when people comment in a way that shows they have no idea about me or what I’m writing about, I’m usually okay with it, but I’ll call you out.

I understand if you don’t understand my life or my choices.

You can disagree with me, politely.

You can ask questions.

You can add to the discussion.


If you type in run on sentences and have no punctuation or capitalization, I’ll assume you are a bot and I’ll delete.

If you are rude, slanderous or mean, I’ll delete.

If you yell at me, I’ll delete.

If you attack my family at any time, I’ll delete and block you.

If you use the word that means ‘unbeliever’ and starts with the letter K, I’ll delete it.

I reserve the right to change the house rules at any time.
