I started my work in Natural Family Planning (NFP) in 1975 with Davey Weitze who learned the Billings Method from Hanna Klaus when she came to Lincoln. After a few years, we decided to learn even more about NFP. A group of us went to Minnesota to learn about the many different methodologies of NFP. It was during this trip that we discovered the Creighton Model System of FertilityCare. For the next 25 years, Davey & I advanced the work of NFP throughout Nebraska.

I grew up on a farm in Steinauer, Nebraska and attended St. Anthony’s Catholic Grade School and Table Rock High School. I am a wife, mother and grandmother. My husband, Mike, and I have six beautiful children -- three girls and three boys.
I attended the Pope Paul VI FertilityCare Program in October 1979 and became a Natural Family Planning Practitioner in November 1980. I graduated from Doane College, Lincoln in 1996 magna cum laude with a BA in Human Relations. I am a certified member of the American Academy of FertilityCare Professionals. Natural Family Planning of Nebraska was incorporated as a 501. (c).3 in October 1991 and, under Natural FertilityCare Center, is an affiliate of the FertilityCare Center of America since July 2001.
Natural Family Planning and the Creighton Model FertilityCare System is the most enjoyable ministry and passion outside of my family and faith. It is the latter that fuels my passion to educate the world around me of the advantages spiritually, physically, intellectually, creatively/communicatively, and emotionally of the FertilityCare System and NFP.
Women are tired of taking drugs and using devices that wreak havoc on their bodies, mind and spirit.
We are in a society that values knowledge and is in need of the truth. As men and women learn about the gift of fertility and how it affects every aspect of our lives, they are wowed at the beautiful design of the body and its functions. Men and women develop a greater respect for their sexuality as they chart the woman’s cycle and learn about SPICE.
After 30+ years, I still have a passion for teaching women and couples about God’s design for womanhood and manhood. Children are seen as a gift; the divorce rate is less than 5% with couples using Natural Family Planning. One of my favorite quotes comes from Scott Hahn: "A child is where a couple's love becomes so REAL..they have to give it a name."
