Decora~Discover Your Feminine Genius!

decoraDecora is a day designed to inspire young women 13-21+ to discover what St. John Paul II refers to as their “feminine genius.” It will be a fun and exciting day to learn about their fertility health, to enjoy a Pinterest craft, delicious food, spring fashion show, beauty tips, speakers and even a guy panel – inspiring them to live healthier and happier lives.


Dr. Marguerite Duane

Decora is the feminine word for “beautiful” in Latin. Isn’t that what every woman wants to be? That is how God created us! He created us with a desire to know the truth, beauty, and goodness of who we are as women. Decora is about the new and authentic feminism.

The keynote speakers will be Ashley Haiar, a FOCUS missionary serving students at the University of California Santa Barbara, Natalie Aughinbaugh, a local NFP only family nurse practitioner and Dr. Duane Marguerite, a board certified family physician, wife, mother and co-founder and Executive Director of FACTS – the Fertility Appreciation Collaborative to Teach the Science, a project of the Family Medicine Education Consortium (FMEC). She also serves as an Adjunct Associate Professor at Georgetown University, where she directs an introductory course on natural methods of family planning.
