For Goodness Sake


Upcoming Events

The documentary, "Inside Story," tells about Elaine’s storytelling work in the Shelby County Jail. Craig Leake, the film-maker, did a wonderful job of showing how a story shared has the potential to set a person free. If you would like to schedule a showing for your community group, church or school, please contact Elaine to schedule an event. She will show the film (27 minutes) and engage your group in a conversation. There is no set fee for viewing the film but donations will be received to cover expenses and to support Elaine’s ongoing work of telling stories.
