About the blog

In Leaven for the Loaf, New Hampshire blogger Ellen Kolb covers legislation and events affecting the right to life. The blog also reports on New Hampshire people whose life-affirming work deserves a wider audience – people who, in the words of Pope Francis, “seek new ways of being a leaven of the Gospel and a force for the spiritual renewal of society.”

She’s Catholic, tenacious, and a proud Granite Stater. She is a writer, public speaker, and hiker, not necessarily in that order.
