+A religious Left take on the headlines,

Who is Liz Charlotte Grant?

I’m a religious writer with a big heart & insatiable curiosity.

As an Anglican Christian, I see beauty & paradox as essential ways to meet with God. (And did I mention therapy? Because that’s another one of my favorite spiritual disciplines.)

I worked as a certified birth doula (CD(DONA)) for a couple of years, during which time I had the chance to witness 21 women become mothers to their squishy-faced newborns. The experience deepened my capacity for patience and empathy for my fellow humans, both like and unlike me, as well as encouraging my scientific curiosity.

I’m a fanatic for midcentury furniture, heirloom tomatoes, and BBC mystery TV. I live outside of Denver, Colorado, USA, with my two elementary-schoolers and my artist husband.
