This chapter presents the stories of five women—Lorena Pospisil, Shirley Goldsmith, Gerry Ardoin, Janice Crador, and Debra Ramirez—whose religious beliefs shaped their environmental actions. Two practices united these women. First, they considered the place of the church primarily as a change maker, or at least a support, in helping communities remain vigilant in protecting the environment and the health of residents. Second, the women also often spoke of prayer and the need to call upon a higher power.
