Meet the W(h)iner

Emily Frase is a wife and SAHM who needed an outlet after she left the workforce. The outlet became Total W(h)ine. Founded in 2018, the blog has grown far beyond her original intention – much to Emily’s delight!

The nonprofit where real life and fertility awareness intersect

FAbM Base

Emily is the co-founder and president of the nonprofit organization FAbM (pronounced “fam”) Base. Inspired by her own experiences and passion for honest education, Emily says that the primary goal of the organization is to make fertility awareness more accessible to any woman regardless of her faith or stage of fertility.

“[Fertility awareness] is knowledge of her body that every woman ought to have.”

Dr. Evelyn Billings

Real Talk on NFP

Whether you’re trying to find a method of fertility awareness, need some practical help and
solidarity, or if you think the Catholic Church is just straight up nuts for this teaching…
this page is for you!

Emily titled her blog Total Whine for a reason.
The real talk is not limited to NFP.

Marriage, Motherhood & Culture

The level of any civilization is the level of its womanhood.
Love always goes out to meet the demands of the object loved. If the one loved is virtuous, we must be virtuous to achieve it. Hence, the higher the love, the loftier must be those who pursue; the nobler the woman, the nobler the world.

Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, Characters of the Passion

Emily is a frequent guest on podcasts, blogs and conferences speaking to all things sex, marriage, motherhood and NFP
