Hello! I'm so happy life has led you here.
I'm Liv, the creator of Eden House, bursting with a purpose to help create, serve, and nourish the earth by empowering women to confidently walk through life rooted in truth and an unshakable identity. Eden House was designed to serve that purpose and was built from the spillings of my heart as I've discovered what I like to call Eden.
It seems like all the moments of my life and my own personal journey of discovering Eden have been working together to birth this space — a dream I've been carrying in my heart since I was 15. I've been learning that the Creator likes to work in process, in the waiting, in the slow unfolding. We are given dreams, not solely for chasing, if for chasing at all; but for leaning into, trusting, resting in something bigger than us. And I guess that's how I found myself so transfixed on this idea of Eden. In the quiet stillness, dreaming about a dream, I found an invitation into Something and Someone Greater than all my dreams combined.
That's what I'm calling Eden; an invitation into the heart of the Creator. A place to behold, become, and be. A place where all the striving, selfish ambition, identity/purpose confusion, fear, doubt, and to-do lists that keep us absent from everyone and everything [except our social accounts] disappear. A place to live in intended identity and explore endless beauty and perfect intimacy. A place to discover the movement of stillness. A place to plant your feet and build your house, so that life is experienced in the fullness of it's miraculous, creative, and wild design. A Something Greater, Heaven on Earth kind of life. With a house [body+soul] inhabited by peace, beauty, holiness, joy, goodness, love. A house intimate with a Creator. A house filled to the brim with power. A house set on a hill, dripping with Light. A house that bears fruit in all seasons. A house that turns deserts into gardens. A house that might just look a little bit like Eden. An Eden House.
I love names and finding the purpose in the seemingly insignificant. My name, Liv, is derived from the latin word for "olive tree"; which is a symbol of fruitfulness, beauty, and dignity and signifies an offer of peace. Neat, right?! I've carried those simple words, fruitful, beauty, dignity, and offer of peace, with me throughout life and they're at the foundation of everything I put my hands to.
I currently live a joy-filled, rewilded life in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA with my husband and best friend, Michael. Together we like to make music, go on hikes with our dog, Titan, and explore the best brunch spots in the city; biscuits anyone?! You'll find that I spend most of my days drinking way too much coffee [because babies aren't on that 9-5 time clock, ha!] and serving the families of my community as a professional doula, aspiring midwife, mentor, yogi, herbal beauty crafter, and friend! I'm fueled by my passion (and lots of coffee) to see women create, birth, and build their families on a foundation of evidence-based education, empowerment, unconditional love, and total freedom. I owe my love of birth and family to my mother, who instilled in me the irreplaceable beauty of babies, the belief that birth is a body + soul + spirit experience, and the art of true mothering.
Becoming and working as a Certified Professional Doula is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling things I have ever done in my life. I have attended and served over 150 birth experiences in the community of Metro Atlanta! I love this work and I am devoted to building upon my academic foundations through continued coursework to better serve my clients. In 2017, I decided to enroll in Midwives College of Utah to pursue becoming a Certified Professional Midwife. While obtaining this degree, I have the pleasure of being an apprentice midwife for DawningLife Midwifery. A dream come true.
I'm confident that no matter what brought you to Eden House - pregnancy, birth, yoga, herbal goods, or just a friend passing through - you won't leave without bumping into a seed of worth, peace, and beauty, that will bear fruit for years to come!
