FoC 070: Uncharted Territory: Getting Real About Natural Family Planning with Jenny Uebbing

Well, folks, it seems like whenever we have Jenny Uebbing on the show we always talk about sex. We’re teasing her that it’s just her brand now. Jenny is a mom of four (with one on the way!) living in Colorado. She is the voice behind the popular blog Mama Needs Coffee where she isn’t afraid to get into the nitty gritty of topics like NFP.

Today we are getting into some real talk about natural family planning: what it looks like in real life, how the Church can better support couples, and why we should be honest about the ups and downs of our experiences with it. So grab a cup of tea and enjoy the conversation!

  1. Thank you for this conversation! 1 note as someone on a Church staff…. if we as a Church offer babysitting we are not allowed by VIRTUS to just have teens in babysitting. There have to be 2 certified adults (over 18) in there at all times – more depending on the number of kids. It’s not as simple as just have the youth group offer babysitting. We have been trying to offer babysitting at all events here and know how important it is – so thank you for affirming it’s value and importance. Just wanted to note as to why it’s not just a easy thing for many parishes to do.

  2. Very good discussion of the problems of contraceptive use even within a Christian marriage, and the burden it puts on women and how it undermines men’s call to chaste virtue towards their wives. Great pointing out how the Catholic Church’s teaching is the fullness of truth and spiritually healthy– even if it is hard, very hard. it is part of a vocation. Thanks ladies!
