Shohreh grew up in a Jewish family in Iran. One of her favorite memories was family Passover celebrations. The Iranian revolution turned Shohreh’s life upside down and she began to ask questions about the meaning of life. She wanted to be a person who would make a positive difference in the world. She began taking self-empowerment courses.
Her parents’ health issues showed her that, despite all she had learned, there was nothing she could offer her parents. So, she began reading the Hebrew Scriptures hoping to find answers. She felt that God was speaking to her through the Bible. She saw a theme of sacrifice and redemption.
It soon made sense to Shohreh that Jesus was the Jewish Messiah. She understood that it was Messiah’s sacrifice that made everything right – it was what gave us peace.
