With Natural Family Planning, marriages are more likely to become stronger and closer to God. When a couple no longer takes the planning of children entirely into their own hands, they are able to fully trust God in every aspect of their life. With NFP, a couple prayerfully discerns God’s will for their family every time they become fertile, instead of using contraception only to fulfill their personal desires. Marriage is an icon of Christ’s love for His Church, as well as a reflection of the love of the Trinity. The best way to keep your marriage healthy and holy is to keep God in the decision making.
““The last ten years had been a rejection of the Church’s teachings on sexuality because all I thought I heard was ‘No.’ But during my NFP class, all I heard was ‘Yes!’ Yes to living a healthy life, yes to living a healthy marriage, yes to living how God designed.”
“We find it ironic, looking back, that we were so willing to trust God’s plan in so many ways, except when it came to our family planning.”
