NFP Awareness Week : Technology For A Cause


It’s NFP Awareness Week! What better time to discuss some easy ways we can use our daily technology to share about something we care about?

We are so extremely connected in today’s world that the reach to go from you to just about anybody you can think of is remarkably small. And the number of people you can reach with a simple “share” or “like” is more than you think!

Here are a few of my favorite ways to spread the word about NFP Awareness Week.  It runs until Saturday, July 28, 2012, so even if you haven’t participated yet you can still finish strong!

Facebook Photos

There are a number of timeline cover photos floating around as well as several profile picture options for those of us who hopelessly refuse to jump on the timeline bandwagon.  Living The Sacrament has some up and IuseNFP has said they have some in the works. (Feel free to use those included throughout this post!)

FB, G+, and Twitter love

Last year I posted one article or resource a day on my accounts focusing on different areas of NFP Awareness.  Here are just a few sites to share and articles to consider.

The Top 5 NFP Happenings – OSV

Share the article itself or focus your share on one of the groups it mentions including:

8 Websites And Blogs To Help You Learn More About Natural Family Planning

Published by Together For Life Online, an outreach of Ave Maria Press. This article includes information on:

The Protestant Pill Predicament

This is written by a young pro-lifer about her journey of discovering the conflict between contraception and her church’s teachings.

This site has a number of thought provoking articles to choose from.

Hand –Washing and White-Washing

This is one of several insightful posts written by April at My Feminine Mind.  I shared a number of her posts last year.

Print Media

Don’t forget about your parish bulletin or monthly newsletter!  Most of the above resources could be printed as a bulletin insert or could inspire a short write-up or two.

Find out what sort of NFP learning and support options are available in your area, what online groups are there to fill in the gaps, and how you can connect your parish family to the support they may be looking for!
