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.

Day 17

Hey guys! Today I was in school and we had a socratic seminar with my class. It was really fun and we got to discuss several different topics, one of them being about whether or not we thought that famous people in our history made the right choices or not. When this topic came up, I thought of Jesus. He did what he deemed right, but what the law determined as sin and unjustice. Through this I am learning to be more about being true to who I am and listening to God for instructions and advice.

  1. Hi Jessica! I've tried several times to post the following comment since last week. If this doesn' work I'll email Matt and give him a hard time. ;)

    Written 3/23/11: We got your sweet note in the mail yesterday. Thank you so much for sending that. I just have to say, girl, you are an ARTIST!! The envelope is so darn cute I have half a mind to frame it!! Camille & Lainey went on an on about it and this morning they were busy trying to duplicate your little sun and trees. The drawings of you and the two of them are just precious! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us.

    So, this is the first time I’ve checked in here to see what you've been up to. You're posts are awesome. It's very clear you are making the most of this time away from the secular distractions of the world! I love that you are digging into your bible and finding new meaning and relevance for your life. I like to think of the bible as God’s love letter to us. The more of it I read and seek to understand, the more I fall in love with Christ and God’s gift of salvation. My prayer now is that closeness you have found with Him and the habits you have formed will remain even after this fast is over. Your journey is continuing to encourage our family!
