Natural Family Planning

Do You Know God’s Plan for Your Marriage?
Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a reliable and trustworthy way to regulate fertility. It is easy to learn, and can be a source of unity for couples.  To be sure, using NFP requires sacrifice and patience, but sacrifice and patience are not obstacles to love, they are a part of love itself.  Used correctly, NFP forms gentle, generous husbands and selfless, patient wives.  It can become a school of virtuous and holy love.
