Ding, Ding, Ding. The alarm on my phone went off, reminding me to chart my fertility signs.
Lucky for my 13-year-old, she asked me what the alarm was for. She is saving every penny for a smartphone when we add her to our plan once she graduates 8th grade. So, she is *very* interested in all things related to cell phones!
Well, sis, since you asked what the alarm was for, you get an answer. At our house, no question is left unanswered!
Every day, I chart my fertility signs so I know if my body is about to ovulate. If I am, your daddy and I prayerfully ask ourselves if we should be open to another pregnancy or not. If we feel like we should avoid a pregnancy, we abstain from sex if I am fertile. God always has the final say in this, as He is our loving Creator. Daddy and I trust that God knows better than we do.
She listened with many emotions flashing across her beautiful face. Curiosity. Slight disgust. Embarrassment. Head shaking. TMI, Mom, TMI! Respect. Love. How fast can I escape?
We have so much to teach our kids about chastity. This morning was a kick in the pants! NFP, while sometimes tricky, has been a huge blessing to our marriage, and we need to share this with our kids. Time for more TMI, kids!
Do you have a question about NFP? Just ask me! Call me, Facebook message me, leave a question in the comments. You could never offend me or ask a silly question—No doubt I have been there. No judgement from me!
