About the Author
Rev. Basia Christ was born in 1946 and grew up in a blue collar family on Chicago’s tough West Side, exposed to poverty and street gangs. She knows how it feels to be in the minority. She learned compassion and tolerance for people who have different cultures and beliefs. Until the late 1980s, she experienced gender discrimination in the workplace which drove her to become an activist for women’s rights. Basia was married and divorced twice. She moved to Aliso Viejo, California in September 2001. She has written for Today’s Woman, Beach Cities Style, and Empowering Women magazines. Basia is the Editor-in-Chief and writer for Radiance magazine published by the Temple of Light, Irvine, California as well as its Executive Director. She reported on the 2009 Inauguration of President Obama for the OC Register. While attending the March 2009 CSW at the U.N., Basia was on a panel with Fran Drescher regarding women’s health issues around the world. She has been a member of the National Association Against Domestic Violence, a CASA (court-appointed special advocate) for a foster child, and a member of UNIFEM. Basia was an altruistic kidney donor on November 3, 2010. She and Lata Kothari, the recipient, are doing well. She is the Executive Director of the Temple of Light in Irvine, California. She is the Editor of Amazing Women magazine published by Raven International. Her Internet radio show, Speaking from Spirit: Become Who You are Meant to Be, can be heard at noon PCT Sundays on the Amazing Women of Power Network, powered by Raven International. You can also listen to archived shows on her website, www.basiachrist.com.

The author effectively narrates the trials and tribulations of the women interviewed, while searching for and ultimately finding her own redemption and self-forgiveness. People from all walks of life can greatly benefit from these emotional journeys and the riveting narrative. I was heartened and inspired by the telling of their personal victories and eventual pathways to happiness. I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of this endeavor and ever so thankful for the shared learning experience.
