Dr. Edmonds loves the Lord, English, and teaching! Put all three together, and she joys in the opportunity to invest her love of English in Christian education. In May 1994, she completed her master’s degree in secondary education and three days later married John, the man she had prayed for as a little girl. Her love for English led her to complete a master’s in English from the University of West Florida in 1998. Two months later, John and Penny experienced the joy of their first arrival, Emma Mae. God blessed them with more joy in 2001 with the arrival of Elisabeth Rose.
Penny has had the privilege to teach freshman grammar and composition courses as well as undergraduate and graduate literature courses. Undoubtedly, her passion is communicating her love of literature to her students. Over the past twenty years, she has had the privilege of developing and implementing the curricula for many English courses at Pensacola Christian College.
She has continually experienced God’s faithfulness and grace throughout her life, and she anticipates continually using her education for the glory of God. Some of her favorite verses are Lamentations 3:21-23.
