Official "Born Grown" Site
In Born Grown, ordained minister Mary Edwards tells her personal story of struggle and victory with honesty, compassion, and courage. She speaks of how she missed her childhood due to abuse and teen pregnancy. She chronicles a failed first marriage that paved the way for her successful 21 year marriage to Rev. Eddie Edwards, Founder of Joy of Jesus Ministries and the powerful ministry partnership that helped revitalize communities and bring spiritual deliverance. She goes on to sensitively describe his passing and the inspiration that led her to continue and expand her ministry to families, women, writers, and now specifically to widows.
Most importantly, Mary explains, using the example of her own family, the devastating effect of generational curses-and encourages all who labor under them with hope that they can stop the damaging cycle and begin a tradition of generational blessing.

About the Author
Minister Mary Edwards is probably best known for her community revitalization work alongside of her late husband Rev. Eddie K. Edwards. Together they founded the Joy of Jesus Ministries, which is located on the eastside of Detroit near City Airport. This work earned them the 107th Point of Light Award from former President George W. Bush, Sr.
Minister Edwards was the founding director of Camden House, the family life center of the ministry. As a result of this successful outreach, she was chosen to serve as a consultant to the advisory team in our nation's capital commissioned to study the "Root Cause of Substance Abuse." In 1996, Minister Edwards retired from Joy of Jesus and began new initiatives. These include:
· His Lovely Wife Ministries, a support group for women in spiritual leadership.
· The Called and Ready Writers, a Christian writers guild presently consisting of over 55 active writers.
· Widows With Wisdom, her latest ministry, established to help widows make the adjustment to living alone following the loss of their spouses. WWW is an outreach of His Lovely Wife Ministries.
She is the radio show host of "Widows With Wisdom" heard every Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. over Radio Station WLQV (1500 AM). In addition to these ministries, Minister Edwards is the author of seven books, including her autobiography, Born Grown. A significant testimony from her autobiography appears in the very first "Chicken Soup for the African American Soul book released on September 16, 2004. She is an international author and speaker.
Minister Edwards is the mother of two sons, four grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. You will often hear her quote the scripture from Prov. 13:22, "A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children; and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just." Minister Edwards believes in leaving a legacy behind.
