Mom & Me: Our Bodies, Our Bond

Registration is necessary at Diocese of Phoenix Events

Cindy Leonard, April 28, 2016 (About Natural Family Planning)

Mom & Me: Our Bodies, Our Bond are Mother/Daughter Programs for 10-12/13-year-old girls and 13-16-year-old girls and their mothers to learn about God’s plan for growing up, becoming a woman and His gifts of sexuality, fertility and chastity. Topics include: the changes in a young woman’s body as it prepares for motherhood; the onset of ovulation and subsequent menstrual periods; the functions of the female reproductive system; the emphasis on chastity and reverence for our sexuality are also discussed with the older girls.

The purpose of the programs is to provide an atmosphere of love and learning to discuss the important topic of growing up and to establish a foundation for continued communication between mothers and their daughters. The programs are presented by NFP teachers or accepters and CALL (Catholic Academy for Life Leadership) graduates who will emphasize respect, understanding and appreciation for God’s gifts in light of the Catholic moral teaching.

Morning Session: 8:30 am to Noon for Moms and their Daughters, age 10-12/13

Afternoon Session: 1:00pm-5:00pm for Moms and their Daughters, age 13-16
