In 2007, Minister Mary Edwards wrote her autobiography, Born Grown. She shares with the reader how, at the age of 13, she became a mother the same day she lost her virginity. At the age of 33, Edwards accepted Jesus Christ into her life. Instead, she has received recognition from her city, county, governor, and even the President of The United States for her community work, including that of establishing programs to get mothers off the welfare rolls. If you ask Edwards how she defied the odds, she will tell you that the day she heard the indictment against her she said within herself, "No. I'm better than that." She is the co-founder of Joy of Jesus Ministries in Detroit; founder of Widows With Wisdom and The Called and Ready Writers. CEO of Leaves of Gold Consulting.llc.
