I can't believe we are almost half way through the month though! This year is not nearly as difficult as least year but there have been a few bumps in the road. One thing I really need to work on is just spending more time with God. I have realized that this month I have gotten rid of all 'bad/negative' media and instead filled my time with God centered media. I guess that's improvement but it wouldn't hurt to just set some time aside for me and God.
What is a 30-Day Secular Media Fast?
What if the noise of godless media is drowning out the voice of God? Not all media is bad... but maybe the distraction away from God is making harder to hear and see God at work.
This is a journey of a group of high school students who have committed to take 30 days to focus on God through God-centered media. This includes TV, movies, books, magazines, smart phone apps, and many social media outlets.

So, this week has been much harder for me. It was spring break for most of us and that means a lot of down time in which we can fall into temptations. I did pretty well, but it was hard to find things to do when I was with my friends. One day I was relaxing at the river with a bunch of friends and one guy was about to put on music and asked me what kind of music I like. I used this opportunity to tell him about the media fast and how this month I was avoiding all media that is not focused on God. He decided to put the music away and no one even seemed to care!
