-Andrea Atkins, author of the Women's Day Magazine article: Inspiring Stories about Women: How I made over my faith
It takes a strong and courageous individual to launch herself into unknown territory in the midst of vast and devastating unfamiliarity. Yet, this is just what Pamay Bassey did when her world was transformed by a series of deeply impactful events. In the face of uncertainty, she commenced a search for God that took her into a variety of geographical regions, liturgical spaces and interfaith worship experiences. Her story is one of insatiable faith, holy curiosity and Womanist courage. Furthermore, there is nothing quite like hearing her story straight from her lips. Her telling captures how a season of personal loss and struggle was eclipsed by her discovery of God in the most unlikely locales, and how this discovery continues to enlighten her human experience. There is something for all to hear and learn from her story.

My 52 Weeks of Worship is a gem of a source of inspiration for anyone going through difficult times or pondering the big life questions. I'm completely taken with the way she not only took a very personal experience of loss and channeled it into a journey of exploration, but more so with the way that she is now sharing her journey with others.
