Once you register your phone number, the Family Spirit Nurture text messaging program will only communicate with you via that phone number.

Keep in mind that if you have your phone synced to other devices (such as your computer), the Family Spirit Nurture text messages will show up there as well. Family Spirit Nurture support staff have access to your information for troubleshooting and support purposes, as well as for sending specific messages to you based on your location. Your information is not used for any other purposes.

Will you share my phone number with other organizations?
