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.
Here, you can follow their stories, their lives, and their challenges. Feel free to leave comments and encouragement.

Attention on God...and the road
First off, this is my first post. Oh yeah! Well anyways, this week I have been driving a ton: to softball, school, errands, you name it. Because of this, I have been listeing to 103.9 the fish nonstop (it's awesome, check it out). And have been using that time as my "intentional worship time." I sing along, think about the lyrics, and focus all of my attention on God, and the road of course haha. This is the easiest switch to make while on the Media Fast. Instead of learning all the words to that new Justin Beiber song you hear every hour of every day. You can learn the words of songs that have so much more meaning. And by committing those to memory, they come back to you during the day and can give you that little boost of encouragement. It's almost like memorizing Bible verses, but not quite. Anyways, that is how I have started this first week of our Media Fast. I am praying for you all and really, if you are lost and hate the silence of the car, turn up 103.9. I promise you will be much happier. Good Luck!
