If I were leading a women's ministry--or held just about any church ministry position that involved women--I'd want this book.
-Connie Willems for Discipleship Journal
Leading Women Who Wound is unique and valuable because it not only includes the knowledge for conflict resolution, but the skills, which are sorely lacking in so many books.

From the Back Cover
Conflict awaits those who want to influence other women for Jesus. It’s best to prepare beforehand.
Given the fallen nature of the heart and the complexities of personalities, conflict is an unavoidable aspect of ministry. How should we deal with our emotions when other women are insensitive, manipulative, or just plain mean? We must understand and practice strategies specifically related to conflict with other women.
Leading Women Who Wound shows you how to effectively address conflict within your ministry. Drawing from biblical examples and their own extensive expertise, seasoned women’s ministry leaders, Sue Edwards and Kelley Mathews walk through several different aspects of conflict resolution, teaching you to:
¿ Explore personality traits and character issues that set women up for problems
¿ Toughen up and snuff out people-pleasing
¿ Practice peace-making in your everyday life and relationships
The transparency with which the authors write and the real life stories they share are genuine and authentic. That’s because they desire for you to minister effectively and to love—even the most difficult women—without condition.
