As more churches add women's ministry programs, there is a growing need to address the issues that naturally arise as women minister alongside one another and to one another. Given the fallen nature of the human heart as well as the complexities of personalities, conflict is an inevitable aspect of ministry. How do women deal with emotions when other women are insensitive, manipulative, or just plain mean? What does the Bible tell us? To be equpped for conflict, women must understand and master strategies specifically related to conflict with other women. Leading Women Who Wound shows women how to effectively deal with conflict within their ministries. Seasoned women's ministry leaders themselves, Sue Edwards and Kelley Mathews walk through several different aspects of conflict resolution including self examination, identification of potential sources of conflict, tools for conflict resolution, and insight on how to prevent and move beyond conflict to minister to those who have been sources of contention. Recognizing that not all conflict results in a happy ending, Leading Women Who Wound gives the tools necessary to minister effectively and move forward with integrity.

Many Christian women live in a world where they are judged by their performance. They struggle to please God and meet the standards others place on them--or the even higher standards they put on themselves. But in all their striving, is there any room left for grace? Sue Edwards and Jodie Niznik believe grace is the most misunderstood doctrine of the Christian faith. They delve into Galatians to explore the many ways Paul shows what it really is. Through principles, theological argument, story, pleading, coaxing, and even scolding, Paul shows us the folly of trying to please God in our own strength or by obeying the law. Sue and Jodie unpack what the law is, what its intent was, where legalism can enter and control readers' lives, and how to escape the bonds of guilt, shame, and false standards. Through this latest volume in the consistently popular Discover Together Bible Study series, readers discover nuances of grace that will revolutionize their lives. By understanding the transformative truth of grace, women will be set free to live wholly, radically, in and for Christ.

Popular Bible teacher Sue Edwards returns to lead women through the first-century letter of James. She highlights the boldness of James's demand to allow our faith to impact every area of our lives. James focuses on how Christians should walk with God and how living out faith creates joy--both for themselves and for God. This Bible study encourages women to experience closer intimacy with God, overcome bad habits and sinful patterns that drag them down, and understand how to truly become that "good and faithful servant" of God they strive to be. Sue includes opportunities to put each lesson into practice with a "Get Up and Go" activity. James challenges readers to use what they learn during the study in their relationships, homes, churches, workplaces, and communities. And if they do, they will find that living out one's faith leads to a life that delights God.

When a church hires a new minister, they are really hiring both him and his wife. Many women entering this role for the first time have never considered what it means to be a minister's wife and consequently suffer stress, chaos, and confusion. In order to thrive, she needs a solid understanding of the biblical teaching on her role and how to best serve her husband as he fulfills his role. Susie Hawkins brings thirty years of experience as a minister's wife coupled with her role as the mother of two ministry wives. By focusing on key relationships and responsibilities in relation to the church and home, Susie guides young women to a greater understanding of how to serve God faithfully as the wife of a minister.

The body of Christ is full of people who have been wounded by Christians or the church. Author Dr. Angela Corprew-Boyd helps the hurting recognize they are not alone and provides them with wisdom and knowledge to reach out to Christ and receive deliverance from wounds that have made them bitter, resentful, and less effective in ministry. Church leaders and laypeople will benefit from Dr. Corprew-Boyd’s testimony and teaching. Once crippled by wounds inflicted by her pastor and trusted members of her church family, the author describes how she found healing and offers words of comfort and practical advice for readers grappling with their own church hurt. She emphasizes the importance of acknowledgement, reaching out to God, and, finally, forgiveness of others and oneself. Her message serves as a crucial reminder that there is hope for the future in spite of what our adversaries have said and done. Topics covered include the many possible sources of church hurt, how to recognize when a wound is still open, how woundedness can be transferred to church members, and the process of healing.
