Who is Liz Charlotte Grant?

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

I’m an award-winning writer and my essays have appeared in the Huffington Post, Hippocampus Magazine, Brevity, Christianity Today, the Christian Century, U.S. Catholic and many other places. I was an editor at the Curator Magazine.

My first book is coming out in 2024 from Eerdmans Publishing.

I have also worked as a certified birth doula (CD(DONA)), 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 with my fellow humans, both like and unlike me, as well as encouraging my scientific curiosity.

I’m also progressive Christian, an identity which sounds like an oxymoron to many Americans right now. I see beauty in every corner of the universe, from the bottom of the Mariana trench to galaxies we cannot even see in our puny retinas to the faces of our next-door neighbors. I really do believe that God is behind whatever good lurks on our planet.

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