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.

The media fast is a bit harder this year for me then the last. There are more things now that are here to distract me such as my Ipod, new TV, and News. I'm doing okay for now, but I am constantly surrounded by media which makes it a bit harder. So, I got an interesting story... I was trying to get a hold of my sponsors and let them know that I was thankful and tell them how I was doing so far. Well, on my first call, I thought that the person was a female, turns out they are male! So when the wife picked up the phone, she was so horrified by my mistake that she hung up on me. They haven't been picking up the phone since... I feel terrible because the lady thought I was calling her husband Mrs. on purpose. Otherwise, my other sponsor had an obvious name and the conversation went very well. Wishing you all better luck then I am having(:
