Meet Jim, Gail, and Jackie! Last year we got to meet them at the Summit, our annual conference. We'd like to share what they're up to as we put the final preparations in place for our Summit this year.
The Simple Truth, hosted by Jim Havens, airs each weekday from 4-5pm (ET) on The Station of the Cross Radio Network. Jim received his masters in Theology from Franciscan University, and his bachelors degree in Media Studies from the University at Buffalo. He also has a masters of fine arts in Screenwriting from Hollins University. Jim has more than 15 years of experience in apostolic work with Catholic parishes, schools, organizations, and media. "The goal of my 'career' is to live my mission: to love God and love people by leading young and old deeper into the transforming, life-giving reality of Jesus and His Catholic Church. Beyond seeking to live my primary vocation of husband and father to the full, I want to use everything I am to help lead others to their true greatness in Christ."
Gail Finke is the producer of Driving Home the Faith, a Catholic radio show broadcast from Cincinnati on the Sacred Heart Radio network. Involved with Sacred Heart Radio since her days as an intern, Gail has worked as a writer, editor, and author; ran the local Catholic web magazine, The Catholic Beat, and designed The Catholic Telegraph.

Jackie Aguilar is an expert in the field of fertility regulation through natural means. She teaches both the Couple to Couple League and the Creighton Methods of Natural Family Planning. She is also a board member of Natural Womanhood. Jackie graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelors in marketing. After an extremely frustrating experience with the birth control pill that diminished her physical attraction for her husband, she learned a natural method of fertility awareness and used it to plan, to the month, the birth of three children. Creighton charting and NaProTechnology were instrumental in helping her and her husband conceive a fourth child after months of infertility and a miscarriage.
