Building World Citizenship One Marriage and Birth at a Time

Cross-cultural marriages and children born from these marriages appear to be part of creating one human family. When my American stepdaughter married a Norwegian-Swede last year and moved to Norway, we really didn’t understand this.

Two New Children’s Books about Prayer and the Nineteen Day Feast by Sahar Sabati

There are many ways to help foster a Baha’i identity in children of Baha’i families but I think Sahar Sabati’s work will also do wonders.

It is very exciting to see more and more titles becoming available by writers and mothers who are addressing this need.
