Eliza Green

Exactly 10 years after going on her first trip with Children to Love to the children's home in India, Eliza is happy to be on staff with an organization that shares the same passion she has for seeing God's love shown to the forgotten and marginalized.

 

Eliza has a background in photography and journalism. After receiving her degree in Creative Photography with a minor in Journalism at California State University, Fullerton, Eliza moved back to her home town of Bakersfield and worked as the photographer at the Bakersfield Californian. She later worked at a local TV news station before coming to Children to Love, where she is excited to use those skills of telling meaningful stories both visually and in writing for the important work done globally and in Christ's name. 

 

Eliza loves working at CTL because seeing the real-life impact her work has in the lives of children and families physically, emotionally and spiritually is life-giving and faith-building. The highlight of her time working with CTL has been getting an up-close look at the work done through her trip to India. Seeing some of the children she met and formed relationships with 10 years ago living full and healthy lives now is a testament to the work God is doing in the communities of each CTL partner. She looks forward to hopefully visiting many more of CTL's partners and seeing the unique way God is moving in each ministerial context. 

 

A fun fact about Eliza is that she is currently going through the process with other family members to become a dual-citizen through ancestry to Italy. When not working, Eliza enjoys staying active and exploring her creativity. Going on long walks or runs, gardening, cooking interesting foods, crafting, hiking or thrifting would all be ideal ways to spend a Saturday for Eliza. 

 

Eliza's favorite scripture is Philippians 4:4-8, "Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." 

 

We asked Eliza, "If you were a pasta shape, what shape would you be and why?"

Eliza: I think it depends on my mood! I would be cavatappi when I'm feeling silly, light and fun, but pappardelle because sometimes I just want uninterrupted, plain and simple pasta. Also, I like making pasta from scratch and pappardelle is by far the easiest to make so it's generally what I end up eating the most.
