This month’s column is taken from tobinstitute.org and is by Lisa Price, who was accredited to teach the Billings Method in 2012 while still living in Trinidad. She has been actively teaching for six years and together with her husband Dominic, mentors couples preparing for marriage. She believes that fertility awareness, understood through the lens of the Theology of the Body, has the power to transform the world. Lisa now resides in British Columbia, Canada with Dominic and their three children.
I wear many hats. Most people know me as a wife and professional mother. To my kids, I’m the designated constructor of forts. (Okay, I will admit, the forts are really for me!) Others know me as a Zumba-loving baker, who’s happiest while dancing…regardless of whether or not there is music.
But what few people know about me is that in my ‘spare’ time, I am an accredited Natural Family Planning instructor—in other words, a person with the unintended ability to cause awkward silence to completely descend upon a room by the mere mention of those three little words.
