Esther Paul and her husband, Doug, have been married for over 27 years, and live in northern Idaho with their children and grandchildren. While their youngest son is currently competing, five of their six children are NCFCA alumni.
Esther has a B.S. in Education and educating children has always been a passion in her life, as evidenced by her work with young children after college and serving as a speech and debate coach for the past 14 years. As the director of a Spokane-area speech and debate club, it is her desire to broaden the opportunities NCFCA offers to Christian youth, including one day to her own grandchildren.
