Hi, I’m Emily, and I’m so glad you’re here!
I began Total W(h)ine in 2018 when I needed an outlet after staying home with my babies. My goal was to be the next big thing on Pinterest, but that quickly changed to me wanting to become the person I wish I had through all the struggles of the NFP life. I never imagined that 5 years later, this whim of mine would become all that it has. Only God can dream up something this big and this fun!

Do you need to know that you’re not the only one who struggles living different aspects of your faith? Are you a Catholic woman desperate for answers and guidance around sex and marriage that is faithful and practical and maybe even funny? Do you like LOTR or Star Wars references mixed into normal conversation? This podcast is for you!

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.Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, Characters of the Passion
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.
Emily is a frequent guest on podcasts, blogs and conferences speaking to all things sex, marriage, motherhood and NFP
