Choosing their religion: That's them in the corner: two converts find new faith

It's one of the most significant changes people can make– to leave a religion in which they've been raised and embrace a new faith.

Family and friends can feel left behind, and let's face it a life of piety is not for the faint of heart. (Three hours of prayer a day, anyone?)
