The Bahá’í Faith: "It's a good fit."

Jenna decided she wanted to become a member of the Bahá’í  Faith and registered her declaration online at  Here is what she shared about her initial interests in learning more about the Faith.
I am interested in exploring the Bahai Faith. I have recently spoken with a friend about beliefs of the Bahai Faith, and it seems to make more sense to me than Christianity. I have long struggled with the idea of organized religion, so have done very little to pursue connection with one particular church. I believe there is one God, and I crave a personal relationship with Him.  . . . phone contact would be best, as my husband would be skeptical about my interest with Bahai.”
The Bahá’ís who met with her share this about Jenna's journey.
Jenna has a daughter who will be seven in a few weeks. She considered registering her daughter as well, but wanted to be sure that the father was in agreement before doing so.  The daughter is currently attending children's classes at a local church in order to have some spiritual exposure.  She and her daughter have read Bahá’í prayers together; she is looking for parenting support among the Bahá’ís.  She has also reconnected with the old high school friend who first introduced her to the Faith almost 2 years ago.  Jenna is an educator and finds that the message of the Bahá’í Faith about the beauty of diversity and the goal of a unified world resonates with her both spiritually and professionally.  She shared with me that, "It's a good fit."
