Is it OK if I let others go before me? I think it's odd that 6 hrs have passed with no comments yet.

I think you got the definitions right.
Body: the physical universe
Spirit: the life force within everything
Soul: when the Spirit enters the body a mind is created, it is the soul
Mother, Father, Son; the familial unit that is at the core of existence itself, three aspects creating the one reality of life.

A soul is a psyche. A psyche is a a living concept; a living measurement; it is a spiritual being's conception. A psyche is comprised of a spiritual being's concepts of reality (not just of its concepts of self but of all the concepts it holds as its measures of reality) - your soul/psyche is your awareness/conception.
A spirit is a purposed being of God's will/the Spirit of God. (All beings are lifeforms of God's will which were purposed for tasks.) When you think spirit, think "a being that is the will of a task." e.g. Human's are God's will for children. Our task is to be his children.
A body is a form or image of a concept. The body of God (Jesus) is not just all of physicality, he is all form - he is the very body of thought/conception.
These words are the image of my awareness (image/word or logos/body/Son)
my awareness is of my will (awareness/psyche or conception/Soul/Father)
my will is my spirit or desire to explain God and reality to you (will/desire/spirit/Holy Ghost)
these words are the image of my measure of my will. (Trinity)
Father=Soul of God
Son=Body of God
Holy Ghost=Spirit of God
Scientifically, a spirit would be a field, the force of excitation of a field would be a concept or measure, and a body would be the image of said excitation.
In math, spirit would be a function (add fives together), the measure would be the conceived equation (5+5=10), and the body would be the image of said equation (5+5=10).
In architecture and engineering there is a saying that goes, "form follows function" but it should instead say, "form follows interpretation of function".
In philosophy and logic, the spirit would be the will of an answer asked of infinity(God), the soul would be the measuring out of said answer, and the body would be the image of said measures.
In Christianity you follow the way (Son) to the awareness (Father) of the Spirit (The Holy Ghost). If you want to follow the way, you need to be baptized so as to receive his spirit/be born again/become a child of God once more (that is, if you have sinned and therefor spiritually died / become spiritually unaware - death means absence of awareness.)
And one last thing: physicality is God's word(s). They have meaning and their meaning is their will or what they do. e.g. Fruit = body of work as food for conception / food for seeds, seed is conception / awareness, etc. If you plant seeds you plant ideas, etc. (You have to look at the spirit of the words to understand them in physicality and in the Bible.)
And that's all for now, good luck.
It is l said that man is made of three elements, body, soul and spirit but the Bible doesn't offer much of an explanation so I am going to give mine and would like to hear yours.
No where in the scriptures does it teach man is eternal, this is a false doctrine perpetrated by New Age and occultist esotericist nonsense. Man is not eternal. After his body is laid to rest in the grave, his spirit does not fly around like a silly Ghost in a Hollywood Science Fiction movie. The spirit will stay in the grave until he hears the voice of the Son of God; Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.John 5:28-29
The grave is the terrestrial earth and in this is referenced as being Sheol. The Spirit of man does not sleep and is conscious till the end day. You are correct in that not all people will have eternal life but not correct in thinking that a spirit sleeps in a grave. When a soul dies its spirit is judged immediately. How else would the spirit of man be in Sheol or heaven? [Luke 16:19-31] -- If the spirit sleeps in the grave then the entire doctrine of the Christ Jesus is a lie. John 5:28-29 has already happened in that day of the crucifixion of Jesus. Those who were in Sheol were judged and the righteous were removed from Sheol into the kingdom of heaven while those who were not righteous were left in the confines of Sheol [hell]. These who are in Sheol, and in the future will be in Sheol, are judged and await their destruction in the last day. Don't confuse rabbinic doctrine with the doctrine of Jesus and James. Jesus has now established His kingdom at His death. Soul sleeping is not the doctrine of the Christ Jesus. My opinion of course
Are you aware Christ raised Lazarus from the grave?
Dan 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
IF men were judged after death, or after Christ resurrection, then surely David would have ascended into heaven, but Peter makes it plain that David was still in the grave.
Jesus died and released him to the kingdom of heaven. Jesus made the statement that David had not ascended to heaven only as He, Jesus, was alive but after His death all of the justified in Sheol were released into the New Jerusalem.
I use the name Jesus because most all people reference Him as Jesus and that puts us all on the same page.
According to your above statement that I posted in quotes, you believe Jesus made the statement that David had not ascended to heaven. Sir, Jesus never made that statement anywhere in scripture.
And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, BOTH of the just and unjust. Acts 24:15
And shall come forth; THEY that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and THEY that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. John 5:29
