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.

I Just Don't Get It...

God made us to love the simple stuff, like a flower or a sunset. But this simple stuff somehow turned into complicated stuff such as movies or videogames. And i don't know about you but i don't think God wanted us to sit around our whole life and look at a screen, i think that he made this world so beautiful so we can enjoy and explore it! God is soo awesome and amazing that he made jungles, oceans, and deserts so we won't get bored.....He gave us the power to run, jump and laugh so we can have fun! So tell me, why did the world get soo amused with technology when all we do is just sit there and watch someone else live an adventure, when we could go out there and live our own adventure??? i was just watching the sunset and i was thinking about all this, and to tell you the truth it made me kind of upset on how the people of the world would rather spend most of their time on man-made things(that we see everyday), then rather on the things that God made for us to enjoy. And i'm not going to lie i always watch tv, use the computer, and play videogames....this just made me sadder because i was one of those people that spent more time on technology then on Christ! But since we have started this fast i have noticed that if you actually look out on nature you will find things that you have never really noticed before....like the super small details on a flower or how fast the sun sets. Well this is all i wanted to say...


  1. Good thoughts! I love it! You have an amazing perspective and insight. Keep it up!

  2. Awesome, Jessica. The Kistner family has been praying that the Lord would give you just this kind of new perspective as you fast. Oh, I am praising Him after reading this! We are following your blog and keeping you in our prayers. I just know that you are going to be more blessed than you could have imagined in this time of holding fast to Christ and leaving so many worldly distractions behind.
