Elizabeth Foss is a cancer survivor who lives every day grateful for the gift of life. Married to Mike Foss and mama to nine children, she finds the charm, wonder, and cacophony of big family imperfection to be great inspiration as she strives to meet life with creativity and grace. A graduate of University of Virginia, Foss has written an award-winning family life column for the Arlington Catholic Herald since 1993. Her writing appears frequently in Catholic Digest and has been published by Catholic Exchange, EWTN, and the Washington Post. She is the author of Real Learning and Small Steps for Catholic Moms and lives in Virginia.
