Natural Family Planning is a gift worth considering. 

A local couple shares their story…

From Cindy:  Chris and I just celebrated our 16 year wedding anniversary, and I can't imagine loving Chris more than I do right now.  Looking back, I believe the one thing that has strengthened us the most and brought us closer together as a couple has been the beautiful gift of Natural Family Planning.  At first, it seemed like a challenging "rule" imposed on us by the Church but, over time, we have come to see NFP truly as a gift handed to us by God, the author of love, to be unwrapped a little more each day.  God has protected me from the dangers of chemical contraceptives and strengthened us in our "yes" to the life-giving love and gift of self that we vowed on our wedding day. I can't imagine our lives any other way. NFP has taught us to trust God, to seek Him first in our marriage and to open our hearts to His desires for us.   
From Chris:  God designed marriage as an "intimate partnership of life and love" so we may better understand His love for us. NFP has strengthened our marriage and love for one another by encouraging us to understand and cooperate with God’s design for a woman’s fertility. NFP fosters a love and a way of life that is open to God's plan for our family and has helped us learn to love each other as God loves us.  This love permeates every aspect of our lives and flows into the raising of our children. Cindy and I are forever grateful for the gift of NFP that was proposed to us so many years ago.
