Renee Fisher has been there. She’s giggled with her friends over that first crush. Thrilled to the pressure of her hand in his. Lost herself in his kiss. Dreamed about the proposal and imagined the day they’d become husband and wife. And she’s had those dreams come crashing down around her.

Growth of Christianity in Iran
Why is the church in Iran one of the fastest growing in the world? Despite the limitations of its national religion, many Iranians are going through an amazing spiritual journey leading them to the basic message of love, which was lived to its purest form by Jesus Christ. However in the region facing so much turmoil, stories of change, love, acceptance and tolerance may not always be welcome by the officials.
Many want to know the stories—the forbidden stories—not talked about by the media. Stories that invoke hope and real life change. Despite the popular notion that Iran is a terrorist nation—Iran’s young people are bright, savvy, better educated and less religiously zealous compared to the surrounding Arab nations. They are more advanced than any previous generation. There is supportive evidence that Iranian migrants help contribute to the academic and financial infra-structure of the host country.
Dr. Mike Ansari knows because he is one of them.
Each one of the three hundred stories paired with a beatitude from Matthew 5:3-11 has the power to change your heart—and your worldview. These stories are the actual accounts of real people inside Iran, captured in their own words. Join Mike in exploring Heart4Iran: The Forbidden Stories, to get a close and personal view of the rapidly changing landscape of Farsi speaking people living in Iran, Afghanistan, and Europe.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:3).
Do you feel unworthy of love?
In this short, but very powerful eBook, author Renee Fisher shares from her heart about how to find freedom by embracing your inner critic. Using the Biblical example of Leah in the Bible, Renee encourages women to find their identity and worth in Christ while learning how praise changes everything.
Like Leah, you too can learn how to be mindful. You are more than your identity. You can lavishly love others including yourself. You can cultivate a life of your dreams even when circumstances do not change and expectations are not met.
