Becky and Steve Greene
Steve and Becky Greene have been speaking to audiences of all ages for over 10 years, both individually and as a couple. They are presenters with the Diocese of Phoenix’s God’s Plan for a Joy-filled Marriage program for engaged couples, as well as speakers for the Catholic Academy of Life Leadership. They also serve as members of the Arizona Right to Life Speakers’ Bureau. A former youth minister and seminarian for the Diocese of Phoenix, Steve is now the Director of the Kino Institute and Adjunct Professor of Theology for University of Mary – Tempe and Adjunct Professor of Philosophy for Mesa Community College. He presents to teens and adults regularly throughout the Valley on topics of sexuality, Christian ethics, the human person, masculine dignity, and marriage and family. Becky, a former agnostic feminist, is a convert to the faith who now writes and speaks on Natural Family Planning, authentic feminism, pro-life apologetics, and the dignity of marriage and children. The couple has been married for over 10 years and has four beautiful children. You can listen to them every Tuesday at 11am on "The Catholic Conversation", 1310AM Immaculate Heart Radio.

Michael Rayes
Michael J. Rayes is a lifelong Catholic. He married his high-school sweetheart in the 1980s, stayed married to her (21 years and counting) and today is a homeschooling father of seven. While in college, Michael founded the first pro-life club on his college campus and won second place in a nationwide pro-life speaking contest.  In the 1990s he wrote The Phoenix Catholic, a cheeky newsjournal that was fiercely orthodox. In 2006, Michael wrote Bank Robbery!, a Catholic children's mystery book (published by Rafka Press). He is also the author of 28 Days to Better Behavior.  Michael earned a B.A. in Education ('97), an M.B.A ('07), and was a junior-high teacher in public schools in Arizona. In spite of - or perhaps because of - his formal training and professional jaunt in education, he and his wife have 14 years experience homeschooling their children.  Today, Michael brings his many years of experience applying psychology and Church teachings as a marriage and parenting mentor to Catholic couples.
