Elaine has been married to an amazing man for 21 years. They have three children whom they adore and have homeschooled for the past 14 years, cherishing each day. Elaine received her Master’s degree in Family Counseling from Liberty University—but quickly realized she wanted to stay home and raise her children. Because she understands the importance of teaching the next generation how to think critically and to communicate effectively, she and her family lead the EverReady Speech and Debate club. Under her leadership, her children and students have gained numerous awards and the invitation to compete each year in the National Christian Forensics and Communications Association (NCFCA) National Tournament.
