Elizabeth Foss is a cancer survivor who lives every day grateful for the gift of life. She is very happily married to Mike Foss and mama to nine children from 6-26. Recently, she added "Nona" to her titles as she welcomed her first granddaughter, Lucy. She finds the charm, the wonder, and the cacophony of big family imperfection to be to be the perfect place to learn to walk in the unforced rhythms of grace

A featured columnist for the Arlington Catholic Herald, Elizabeth has written an award-winning family life column for 21 years. Her work has appeared frequently in Faith and Family Magazine and Catholic Digest and she has also been been featured at Catholic Exchange, EWTN, Our Sunday Visitor, and The Washington Post. She was a frequent contributor and Managing Editor of Welcome Home. 

Elizabeth published her first book, Real Learning: Education in the Heart of My Home in 2003. The book is now in its third printing. The philosophy in the book is brought to real life on Serendipity, a free blog jampacked with curriculum, books, and teaching ideas. She has authored a second book, a book of daily meditations, Small Steps for Catholic Moms, with friend and colleague Danielle Bean.

Online,  Elizabeth's blog, In the Heart of My Home, has received numerous awards, including Best Homeschooling Mom Blog (2006 and 2009) and Top Ten Blogs for Christian Women
