She is the author of Organic Mentoring, Leading Women Who Wound , Mixed Ministry, New Doors in Ministry to Women and Women’s Retreats: A Creative Planning Guide and the Discover Together Bible Study Series, which includes the following books: Philippians: Discovering Joy Through Relationship, Daniel: Discovering the Courage to Stand for Your Faith, Luke: Discovering Healing in Jesus’ Words to Women, First Peter: Discovering Encouragement in Troubling Times, Proverbs, Ancient Wisdom for a Postmodern world, Volume 1 & 2, Ephesians: Discovering Your Identity and Purpose in Christ, and Revelation: Discovering Life Today and for Eternity. Married to David, she especially enjoys romping with their five grandchildren. Dr. Edwards’s research and teaching interests include women’s epistemologies and leadership styles.
