iDisciple Podcast: Personality Temperaments



Kathleen Edelman joins the iDisciple Podcast to share her expertise in determining personality temperaments and how that impacts the intricacies of every type of relationship.

Have you ever felt misunderstood by the ones you love the most? Our guess is, the answer is a resounding, “yes!” Us too. The words we say and the words we hear have the power to shape our entire life, and the more sobering thing is that our words have the power to shape other people's lives too.

Today’s guest on the iDisciple podcast is Kathleen Edelman. Kathleen is a Christian counselor and life coach specializing in personality temperaments.

After earning her doctorate in Christian counseling psychology, Kathleen had the privilege of serving as the personal assistant to Florence Littauer, author of Personality Plus for Parents. She also has a published vignette in one of Florence's books, The Blue Plate Special.

Kathleen loves encouraging families to understand their individual temperaments. Her mission is for each of us to believe in and be comfortable with who God has made us to be. When not coaching, Kathleen enjoys spending time with Brad, her husband of 27 years, and their two children.
