One Woman's Journey through a Challenging Century is the beautiful, true story of a strong, resilient woman. Born six days before WWI ended, Edrel grew up in the heart of that century and shares ninety years of her experiences. Edrel was one of eight children, whose parents instilled in them the need to have faith and trust in God. This is the story of a little timid girl who took more than twenty years to come out of her shell. But when she did, she accepted every challenge that came her way. The challenges ranged from initiating the first anti-drug club for children in the 1960s to serving on various national committees. The club, called Help Dan, grew in popularity and was implemented in thirty-eight states. This, and other accomplishments, earned her several major awards including Alaska Mother of the Year and also Military Wife of the Year for all five branches of the military. Edrel toured with Art Linkletter and his entourage across the United States, was twice an honored guest in the White House, and is an honoree in the National Women's History Museum. Inspiring and bold, One Woman's Journey through a Challenging Century takes you along on a remarkable life journey that spans the twentieth century, two continents, and seven states.
