Why I, Kaya Gravitter, Converted to Islam

My reason for accepting Islam is a long story but I will try to keep it short. (I will also site from an article I wrote for Yahoo News where I talked about my reason why I converted to Islam.)

While I was growing up as the granddaughter of a Pentecostal preacher from Kentucky who started a church in northern Wisconsin, the teachings of the Church were drilled into my brain.

But from a young age, I had a lot of questions that most Christians or the Bible could not answer. I asked my Bible teacher at 7 years old:

“Why do we celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25?” (I recently learned that there is scientific evidence Jesus was not born on Christmas). I also asked questions like:

“Why was the Trinity introduced after Jesus died?”

I later left the Pentecostal religion at 10 to be a Lutheran. Aside from my discrepancies with Christianity, I went to church every Sunday, read the Bible (still do), taught vacation Bible school, and sang at church. I even went to leadership camp every summer during high school, where we would focus on the Old and New Testaments.

When I was 16, I had some inclination to start praying directly to God. I was around family, who would say in prayer, “Dear Jesus, thank you …,” but I would say under my breath, “Dear God.”

I felt upset that people were not praying directly to God.
