Born and raised in Muslim Turkey, Derya Little rejected her family’s Islamic faith and became an atheist after her parents’ divorce. During her stormy adolescence, she tried to convince a Christian missionary that there is no God but was converted to Christ instead.

While attending a Turkish university and serving as a Christian youth minister, Derya began to compare the teachings of Protestantism and Catholicism, and during her doctoral studies in England, she entered the Catholic Church.

Little has an MA in History and a PhD in Politics. She has written articles for academic journals, Catholic World Report, Crisis Magazine, National Catholic Register and other Catholic publications.  Her conversion story, From Islam to Christ, is published by Ignatius Press.

How can we come alive in this dead culture? How can we share the Faith with Muslims and atheists? How can we talk to lukewarm Catholics, agnostics and anyone in between?
Join the conversation to swim against the stream.
Let’s “Live a Little” and bring the lost to life together!
