Frequently Asked Questions


e-Vine (Ventures-In-Net-Education) is an online, interactive library for website visitors of all ages. Our goal is to help viewers experience the true joy of reading, learning, and growing by offering an array of exciting, interactive publications that promote personal development and productive living—at no charge to the viewer.

Our purpose is to provide endless opportunities for learning among students of every age, in every nation, by featuring articles, videos, stories, recipes, puppet shows, games, coloring pages, and puzzles--all free of charge.

The concept for e-Vine was first conceived in November 2007 by Marcella Willhoite, a senior citizen and native Houstonian. Having owned and operated a publishing company for 30 years with her late husband, Ron Willhoite, she recognized that educators are failing to capture the attention of youthful “navigators of the world-wide-web.” With savvy grandchildren of her own, she has set out on a mission to promote motivational learning via the medium of 21st century technology.

A small group of skillful professionals, who caught the vision of e-Vine, formed a non-profit corporation in 2008. This team recruits and trains quality personnel who are staunchly committed to establishing a distinguished Internet library for viewers all over the world.
