Looking for a Way to Explain Natural Family Planning? 5 (Short) Videos to Help!

Article begins after advertisement:

This week is National Natural Family Planning Awareness Week (July 24-30th 2015) in the United States. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) chose this week because July 25th is the anniversary of Humanae Vitae, the papal encyclical which explains the Catholic Church’s teaching on marriage, sex, and responsible parenthood. This year the theme is: Love, Mercy, Life,Natural Family Planning,Opening the Heart of Marriage

It is estimated that 87% of Catholic women use a method of contraception instead of practicing Natural Family Planning!  This statistic is shocking and heartbreaking, because the Catholic Church is adamantly opposed to the use of contraception.  Obviously, we need to raise awareness about Church teaching, the benefits of NFP, and the many different ways to practice NFP in a marriage.  We have collected 5 videos to help introduce and educate others on NFP.  Use these in your small group Bible study, young adult group, marriage prep class, or share on social media as a way to get conversations started about Natural Family Planning.
