She urges people to embrace their past, enlighten their hearts, equip themselves with new techniques and perspectives, find valid sources of encouragement, and make a final decision to transform their lives.
Edna realized that it was a lack of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom that drove businesses and people to take advantage of each other. Presenting a better way to improve your bottom line, Edna has inspired business owners, leaders, and sales professionals to follow biblical principles and, as a result, be rewarded with joy and success. Her own vision reflects this commitment: To transform the marketplace for the better one mind at a time.

She has always been hungry for the things of God, and throughout her journey the Lord has empowered her with a spirit of discernment and wisdom to rightly divide the Word and look and hear through the Spirit of Truth. Her spiritual gifts are maturing from day to day and glory to glory, but most importantly she is becoming more like her Redeemer each and every day. She is still learning and growing in her walk with Jesus Christ, and will continue to progress in her revelation knowledge of His love, glory, and power as she seeks Him with all her heart, soul, and mind. She is excited to be part of the End Time Army who is preparing the body of Christ for His glorious return.
