Women’s Forum Council

Kristin, Site Admin
Kurt (your webmaster) and I have been married since the summer of 2004. We began our marriage having learned the Creighton Model of natural family planning but when our diocese expressed a need for more NFP instructors we trained in and began using and teaching CCL’s sympto-thermal method which we used and taught for several years. I’m currently instructing clients in SymptoPro Fertility Education, a Sympto-Thermal Method from Northwest Family Services. I teach online at lovenatruallynfp.com.

We have 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls, and I am currently a stay-at-home mom.  My hobbies include playing piano, photography, and Living the Sacrament of course!  Kurt recently finished his Masters and is currently working in Automation. I am so thankful for his willingness to serve this community and give of his time to keep our site up and running. His expertise has been absolutely invaluable in the creation and maintenance of this forum. When we started Living the Sacrament we hoped it could be a source of support to those of us who have felt isolated in our NFP journeys. It has been so wonderful to watch each of you join and make this community your own. I look forward to getting to know you all and feel so very blessed to be a part of this growing apostolate! – Kristin (usernames ~ Kristin / Admin) Email Kristin   Email Kurt (Webmaster)

Hi, I am Kara. I have been married to my wonderful husband since the fall of 2004 and we have a daughter and a son. I am so blessed to be able to stay at home with my children.  I grew up Catholic and attended Catholics schools.  My husband went through RCIA in 2004.  About a two years after getting married, we were having marital problems. We went to a Catholic counselor who suggested that we try NFP to help with some of our problems. It changed our marriage for the better. We communicated better, we prayed together more, I was healthier, and we were so much closer and happier. Besides the chatting on Living the Sacrament, my hobbies include photography, scrap-booking, reading, shopping, and playing with my kids and dog. – Kara (username ~ Kara) Email Kara
