Simply Amazing Women
by K.C. Armstrong
WMAP Publishing

"Be inspired by these Amazing Women and what their best qualities say about all of us."

Noted radio personality Armstrong interviews thirteen extraordinary women in this moving collection. Kathy Bidelman learned forgiveness after the tragic death of her brother. Cicilia Sleyeian advocates equality for Maasai girls. Debra Morgan conquered addiction to help others similarly burdened. Jade McAuliffe assists those affected by suicide. Recovering from an abusive relationship, Danielle Shay now teaches stock option trading skills. Marilynn Hughes advises those exploring out-of-the-body travel. Life coach and author Marcy Stone, a survivor of personal tragedy, counsels mothers after surviving difficult childbirth. Sandi Holst renounced workplace boredom to encourage women to seek enlivening employment. Nigerian Feyi Obamehinti founded a charity for disadvantaged communities, while breast cancer healing became the focus for Lola Scarborough after many setbacks. Forthright Wendy Ann shares perspectives as a writer and founder of her own “tribe.” Ancient disciplines of Qigong aid Lotus Zheng in her healing work, while educator Misti Rains inspires after battling a brain aneurysm. The face-to-face/voice-to-voice format helps readers feel they know these women personally, using empathy to draw out stories from each of these remarkable individuals.

Armstrong shines an encouraging spotlight on their unique experiences. He appropriately prefaces each woman’s account of barriers and successes and, when needed, deftly prompts, offering pertinent facts and gently phrased questions. It’s an effective technique, creating a comfort zone of understanding. Interviewees are respected as they recount defining moments and share accumulated wisdom. This is the second in the Simply Amazing series, with interviews taking place in Armstrong’s internet and FM outlet WMAP (World’s Most Amazing People). His introduction references the current COVID-19 pandemic, remarking that all the stories in this aggregation involve “a personal pandemic that one has to somehow get through.” International in scope, this volume will doubtless be inspirational for women of any age and provide a lively focus for women’s groups and forums across the globe.
