Friday: 3 monitors, 2 boxes of test strips, and a Marquette class!

It’s the final countdown! Or whatever. Today is the last day of my week of raffles. My lovely sponsors have donated no fewer than eight fertility monitors so far. Amazing! Pee on them in good health, my friends!

Today, there are three final prizes:

One monitor, donated by my friend Beth Brenner Wallace (prize for US winner)

One monitor and box of test strips, donated by Smart Loving (prize for winner in any country)

One monitor, box of test strips, and online introductory class with optional breastfeeding instruction and one year of follow-up, donated and taught by Lauren Vitale (prize for US winner)!

A little bit about Smart Loving:

SmartLoving has a range of programs for marriage enrichment and marriage preparation that aim to integrate Theology of the Body insights and modern psychology to give couples practical tools and spiritual nourishment to live the Catholic vision for marriage. We are currently investing in taking our programs into online learning to give affordable access to Couples all over the world to quality marriage enrichment and preparation.

Part of this mission is includes introducing couples to the actual Catholic teaching and vision for a couple’s fertility and promoting Fertility Awareness Methods of all kinds as an alternative to the ‘standard fare’.

See SmartLoving for more information!


A bit about Lauren Vitale:

Lauren Vitale, who worked for many years as a pediatric nurse, says:

I first learned about the Marquette Method after my youngest child was born. Natural Family Planning while breastfeeding has specific challenges, and I found the objectivity of the Marquette Method gave me greater confidence. I was so encouraged that it motivated me to become an instructor in the Marquette Method and put my nursing knowledge to good use: helping women and couples know their fertility and be empowered to make decisions with confidence.

I have been teaching the Marquette Method since May of 2017 after being trained as an instructor through the Marquette University School of Nursing Institute for Natural Family Planning. I received my full certification in May of 2018 after completing the continued practicum through Marquette University. My training has given me the opportunity to truly appreciate the value of a research-based and scientific approach to Natural Family Planning by working with the researchers and developers of the Marquette Method. I have loved meeting so many amazing women and couples from all over the world, and I enjoy helping them learn and apply the Marquette Method to meet their family planning goals.
