Elaine Eachus is a student of life. Currently her classroom is the South Florida COVID-19 environment which has shrunk her access to the physical world. Searching for "something more" she seeks clues to a more generous landscape, greater appreciation of the moment, enjoying others as gifts, not problems to be solved, joining the discipline and privilege of being an entrusted participant in an ever-expanding universe. A wife, mother and grandmother, she has been a public school teacher, elementary school librarian, director of gifted education, a pastor and an interim minister, Eachus seeks to put the pieces of her life into a meaningful whole in the constantly changing blur of life today. She has masters’ degrees in education, library science, divinity, and a doctorate of ministry in preaching. Her passion for gardening provides a canvas to reflect and practice the art of living in these times.
