Rich and Janet Napoli’s Recommended Books and Resources

One of the main topics that Rich and Janet are passionate about is conjugal chastity.  “Conjugal chastity means living your life in accordance to God’s plan,” said Rich.  “It’s not about denying your sexuality, but expressing it appropriately. Sex should be both unitive and procreative.”  Click “more” to see a list of books and other resources on the topic that Rich and Janet highly recommend.
