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.

Finally BloGg3d :D

Ok so I have been crazy busy. This past 23 days has been crazy hard. Especially on the Music part. They play music 24/7 at work, and i worked 40 hours last week, so hard to drown out, but!! always a but! I have devoted myself to learning a new verse a day! love it! I have also been saying my Awana verses....shhh Meme doesn't know, its a suprise! Almost done with my book too! Starting new ones next week, they make really good devos and have helped my apply God so much more to my life and understand so much more! Guys this month started horrible, my attitude stunk, i was reluctant to do this, but now im having so much fun explainig people why I'm doing this fast and what i've got out of it. I even had the chance to take my friend Nikki to Dare2Share(whom is mormon) she asked so many questions and i got the privelage to share with her without her making mean comments! I loved getting that chance! I loved reading about you guys! I miss you all Mucho!!!


So I was away speaking at a conference in Colorado and Oklahoma over the past weekend... I missed you guys... looks like you are all doing well. Give someone who is doing the fast a call today... ask them how they are and when the last time they posted anything was... oh, and are they doing the contests?

But more important... ask each other how you their spiritual development is going. Are they reading thier Bible? Are they doing the devos? Are they actually pursuing God?

One thing I got from these kids this past week is the importance of talking about your spiritual walk... the reality is we don't really talk about it. We post something about it. We Twitter about it. But we don't talk about it... so take some time today to check in on each other. How is your pursuit of God going?

so i finally figured it out...

so today i decided to call matt to figure out how to post on ourthirty. a little delayed but whatever. so my month has actually been going pretty well. ive read all the narnia books about 3 times each and ive also been digging around on my bookshelf for some more christian books. ive also been reading my bible a ton- james and stuff to go along with the bible study at dianes. im definatly looking forward to doing the challege thing for our leader. so one of my best friends from school, elizabeth has been going to church with one of our close friends, and is planning on going to hume sd with us. shes been asking a lot of questions about the bible and im hoping this will lead to her acceptance of Christ. so be praying for her! yesterday, after leadership, i came home and sanded all the rust off my beach cruiser, and washed her. so now shes blue and sparkly :) ive been riding around a ton getting my feel of the bike (i learned how to ride like 2 1/2 weeks ago) and ive been praying alot when i do that. something about riding your bike gives you soo much time to think about everything. so try it!


Hi guys. I'm so bored. The media fast is actually getting a lot harder. I am so surprised, because I thought that it would actually be easier once we started, but I was wrong. I am missing movies more than any other media right now. I even miss it more than facebook... if that's even possible. es God is really helping me out though, he has been telling me to be strong in Matthew. Read the bible guys! It really helps a lot!

I found out that God wants to U us to his H and that we should be very willing to leave all of our e behind! God calls us to be disciples, so we should willingly answer. He loves us very much and wants us to be very happy.

8 more days

this is like the home strecth and i feel bad because i havent sent out my letters to my sponsers . so i was thinking cant i like just give them my thank you letter instead of my regular letter becasuse that would be like 10x's easier. But i guess the last few days are the worse because i want it to be over . Btw i hope allie liked her card :) thats all i have 2 say

Me, God, and a High School Track

so i sort of stole sarah's idea about running and focusing on God at the same time. so during P.E., while we were running single-8's and doing cross-fit and whatnot, i let my mind wander to all of the cool stuff around me. it was so warm and beautiful outside, so i was like "sweet. God made all of this". i mean, duh, but i dont often just look around and recognize that God has created such amazing stuff. and-hey-i actually did better on my run that day, and i wasnt feeling totally dead after it, either! ! so ya, that was my cool little experience that helped me connect more with God during this past week. :) later, alligator! !

Sorry everyone

Sorry about the devos everyone. I haven't had internet access for the past 4 days... we are back up and running tonight though! See you all this week. Hope you are all doing well!
