Who is Liz Charlotte Grant?

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

I’m an award-winning writer with a creative writing degree from the Harvard of Christian schools (…or so the admissions office tells me). My essays have appeared in the Huffington Post, Hippocampus Magazine, Christianity Today, and the Christian Century. I’m the publisher of the Curator Magazine.

I’m also an Anglican Christian. My beliefs teach me to see beauty & paradox in every corner of the universe, from the bottom of the Mariana trench to galaxies we cannot even see in our puny retinas.

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.

Currently, I’m in the process of publishing my first book, a memoir entitled, Blinding Glory: Losing Vision and Seeing God, a romp in the world of medical blindness, lost faith, and dysfunctional family relationships. (It’s both darker and funnier than it sounds, promise.)
