Great New Site/Link

About a week ago or so (I forget exactly) I posted a new link on my NFP section on the side - NFP Information. It looked pretty good, but I didn't get a chance to really look at it until the other day.

I am so glad I found this site. It has a ton of good information!

If you haven't already clicked over, it starts off w/ an overview of what NFP is... It's a short little introduction that manages to explain it pretty well for as short as it is. There are links from there to pages w/ more in depth information.

One is the Primer. I think this is my favourite page. Seriously. It has detailed information about how effective NFP is/can be, plus comparisons to BC. The section on the only 3 things to be 100% effective in preventing pregnancy was one of the first things to catch my attention on there (oddly enough made me laugh even though it's not really funny). And they bring up the discrepensies in statistics quoted by BC promoters (remember my vent about one of them using stats from rhythm method and those who use real NFP methods to get pregnant in there numbers for people using it to prevent?). That alone got it linked to this blog lol. There's also information about health benifits, marriage building and cost in this section.

Under all of that it goes into more detail about charting broken into several different sections. One for avoiding pregnancy, one for achieving, etc.

The next page is on Effectiveness. It's pretty self explanitory... At first I thought it was a bit redundant, since they compair it to BC on other pages, but after reading it... it makes sense. It's more detailed. They show comparisions, not just between NFP and various forms of BC, but also between countries.

Another page of theirs that I really like is the Biblical Views section. I don't know how many times I've had to go searching for the Bible verses (I'm not good at memorization).. I can tell you what it says, but not word for word or where... This makes it easy to find lol.

They also go into side notes on Natural Law and BC and Pro Life and BC.

Choosing NFP puts everything in an easy to read format. Very simple. Honestly I think this page may be better than the opening welcome/intro page... is blunt, to the point, bullet format... to the point.

The last is Resources... Pretty self explanitory there... They put together a good basic list of materials, but I've heard of (and seen) a lot of other good resources that I wish were on there as well.

Anyways, I'm gonna get going.. I've just been meaning to write this the past couple days... and since the Maronite Voice came in the mail today complete w/ an article on NFP I thought this would be a good time to do it lol. We've got a big day tomorrow though!
