Hi! My name is Michelle Qureshi, and I love to provide encouragement. This channel is dedicated to connecting with and uplifting others through the vehicle of personal story. Stay tuned to follow me and my daughter, Ayah, as we navigate this platform! A big part of my story includes the death of my late husband, Nabeel, in 2017. Nabeel was the author of New York Times bestsellers "Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus" and "No God But One." This channel was originally his, created to provide social media updates as he walked through cancer. Soon after Nabeel passed, I felt it impressed upon me to vlog as I stepped into young widowhood and single motherhood. By July 2019, it was clear that this had become my new direction: inspiring my own followers by sharing transparently about my journey and the hope I find in the midst of it. I hope this channel uplifts you!

Discover Unexpected Joy

“What was the happiest season of your life?” a friend asked me this past weekend. Amazingly enough, the answer that came to mind occurred during my late husband’s year-long cancer journey. The weekly prayer group that met at our home during that timeframe consisted of a faith-driven people who were not defined by the circumstance. […]
