Author Monica Rafie

Monica Rafie lives in the NW suburbs of Chicago with her husband and five children. In 2002, she founded in response to a growing need to help parents find online community, life-affirming encouragement, and services and support in their own areas. Later, she and colleagues Sandy Buck and Tracy Winsor started Be Not Afraid Ministry in response to the absence of local, comprehensive, peer support for parents after prenatal diagnosis in Catholic communities. As a result, Be Not Afraid Ministry is active in several dioceses at this time, and in development in a handful others. For questions regarding the development of a local service in your area, contact Tracy at Monica Rafie and Tracy Winsor are both Contributing Writers for HLI America, an initiative of Human Life of America.
