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.

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.
