Simcha speaks … with honesty along with the wit and wisdom that always make her teachings so memorable and helpful. She summons all of us to trust, mutual patience and kindness, and to a joyful honesty about NFP. --Msgr. Charles Pope, Pastor of Holy Comforter - St. Cyprian Parish, Washington, DC
Fisher is wide-awake; she appreciates irony and with a sense of humor that is proportionate to the seriousness of her purpose she helps the reader wake up and smell the irony, too ...
NFP is not free. It costs a great deal, of both partners. And yet...through the very depths of her learned compassion expressed so eloquently and with such transparent humility Fisher provides the evidence of its solid, life-enhancing value. --Elizabeth Scalia, author of Strange Gods: Unmasking the Idols in Everyday Life
Before The Sinner s Guide to NFP, the only way you could get this kind of candor on the subject of Natural Family Planning was in private conversations with your best friend. Simcha has taken all the things we think about NFP but feel like we can t say, brought them into the light, and addressed them with insight and razor-sharp wit. You ll laugh, you ll nod your head in recognition, and you ll ultimately walk away inspired by the kind of encouragement that only someone else in the trenches can offer. --Jennifer Fulwiler of Conversion Diary
