Elizabeth Watkins

Mrs. Elizabeth Watkins, founding director of the Southern Baptist Church and Home Education Association (SBCHEA), is the wife of Carl Watkins, the mother of daughters Emily and Elise, and "Magistra" to many Latin "discipuli" in her North Texas homeschooling community. Four years ago, God planted a dream in her heart of uniting and encouraging Southern Baptist home educators. Convinced that homeschoolers were called to prepare the future generation of servant leaders in truth and righteousness, Elizabeth saw her dream fulfilled in the Southern Baptist Convention's 2004 Christian Education Resolution debate, when God opened the doors for the new ministry. Elizabeth is now continuing a family legacy of service in that denomination which began in 18th-century colonial America.
