Session 1: For Mothers and Daughters

The teen years are very important to the integration of fertility.  Understanding, experience, and choices made between puberty and college can have a life time of implication not only physically, but spiritually.  This presentation will explore issues regarding the female cycle from a spiritual and physical perspective, in the context of Church teachings-- including practical questions such as the use of "pill" for medical reasons.  It is appropriate for mothers who may want to share this information with their daughters, and for daughters who have reached puberty through approximately age 20.
