Belinda Elliott Contributing Writer

CBN.comOriginally from Goodview, Va., near Roanoke, Belinda earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies from Gardner-Webb University, in Boiling Springs, N.C., where she graduated as the valedictorian of her class. Following her graduation, she took a job as staff writer at a weekly newspaper, The Smith Mountain Eagle, in Moneta, Va., where she wrote feature stories, news stories, and reported on community events around the beautiful Smith Mountain Lake area.

After nearly three years with the Eagle she accepted a job at The Roanoke Times, but she soon found that the Lord had other plans for her. After much prayer and consideration, she answered the Lord's call for her to attend graduate school at Regent University, and she packed her bags for Virginia Beach. In May, 2003 she graduated from Regent with a master's degree in Journalism. Shortly before her graduation she began her career at CBN.

Writing has been Belinda's passion since age 10 when she began writing poetry for family members and church programs. Her articles have been published in several magazines including Church Libraries, The Christian Communicator, Advanced Christian Writer, and The Secret Place.

She has also won several awards for her writing including a first-place award from the Virginia Press Association for a series of feature articles she wrote while working at The Smith Mountain Eagle, a first-place award for a short story published in The Writer's Journal, and a second-place award for a short story submitted to a local writing contest.

In September 2004 Belinda married the love of her life, Matt, after a nine-year friendship that started in college. She and her husband are actively involved in their church and enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, and cuddling on their couch for movie nights.
