Suzanne Carter is a co-founder of Faithful Fiat ministry that invites and encourages women to gain a deeper awareness of their feminine nature and God’s providential plan for their lives. Faithful Fiat from Luke 1:38 actually means “to say yes to God’s will”. Through Scripture combined with St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, Suzanne yearns to be like Mary by saying “yes” to God’s call to holiness. Her desire is to encourage women to embrace their authentic beauty as daughters who are created in the image and likeness of God. Suzanne is a wife to Jim Carter and mother of three teenage daughters Alyssa, Lindsay and Michaela and has come to see a great need in our Church to share the beauty of the Theology of the Body to families.
Rowena Crist is Co-Founder of Faithful Fiat, a ministry that opens women’s hearts and minds to the true meaning of femininity through the teachings of St. John Paul the Great and the science of Fertility Appreciation. “ For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 This verse is evident in Rowena’s story.
Today, she educates women and couples on the truth about a woman’s body and the gift of her fertility from the scientific point of view. Rowena is a wife and mother of six beautiful young women, a former high school religion and psychology teacher, Physician Assistant, and a trained FertilityCare practitioner, medical consultant and FACTS (Fertility Awareness collaborative to Teach the Science) speaker. There are obvious milestones in her journey as a “beloved daughter of God” that have led to the work she does today.
