I am excited to announce that Kathleen at Project M has graciously published a guest post of mine today.  Project M is a really cool site written from the perspective of a cool gal who shares her experiences in the early years of marriage.  Kathleen is candid, funny and offers a refreshing perspective on this crazy thing we call marriage.

Kathleen approached me with some questions about Natural Family Planning, and we decided it would be cool to create a frequently asked questions of sorts on the topic.  So, Kathleen sent me some questions written in her own open style, and I provided candid (and sometimes personal) responses.  I think the end result is a fantastic resource that everyone (both NFP-inclined and not so much) should take a look at to learn more.

The article is entitled “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Natural Family Planning” and I would really appreciate it if could take a minute to visit Kathleen’s site and read the post.  It would mean a great deal to me if you could show your support in this way, and we would both love to hear from you in the comments section!

    It appears there is a lot of interest on this blog from protestants. Christopher West, popular Christian speaker on sexuality, gives a fantastic short talk to a protestant audience on contraception and NFP at:

    1. Thanks again Batrice for sharing some great info! Indeed, I am proud of the diverse variety of faiths that are represented in the Engaged Marriage readership. It sure makes it fun to discuss issues that touch on spirituality, as so many marriage-related topics do.

  2. Dustin-
    Thanks for visiting my website! My husband and I are big believers in NFP and are so happy that we found this method of birth control before we were married. Like you have said on your website, it has only enriched our marriage and made us grow stronger. I love your website and the message you are promoting. I have added you to my google reader.

    God’s blessings on your family!

    1. Thank you so much for your support, Trena! I always love to find and interact with others who have discovered the goodness that NFP can bring to relationships. There is obviously a HUGE need to get the word out about this often-ignored method of family planning.

  3. Holy smokes, Dustin, your guest post has generated a TON of new traffic on my blog! Wow, you have a dedicated and engaging readership! I am just so delighted by the response I’m getting. Thanks again for agreeing to do this. It has been such a valuable experience for me in so many ways. I can’t believe you answered ALL my questions! (Oh, and thanks for your generous introduction to Project M. You are too kind).

      I am really excited to post the response you provided to my answers as a guest post here next week. I think anyone who reads it will be moved by your honesty and openness to learn about a topic that unfortunately remains counter-cultural…for now! 🙂
