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.

14 days left!!

I am usually not one to blog frequently, but I felt inclined to share this (I don't know why). I was reading my Bible this week, and I came across a few verses and passages that really spoke to me.

The first verse was Hebrews 10:26, which says "For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins." 
So often I find myself in the middle of a sin, and I will recognize it, but I won't do anything to stop it, or prevent it. I found this verse eye-opening and paralleled it to the Media Fast in the sense that I will find myself absent-mindedly opening Twitter, and I will recognize it, and it is truly a struggle to close the app. After reading this verse, I took it upon myself to log out and delete every social media app I have. This has already helped me to get off my phone (since now i have nothing to look at on it) 

The last verse is Hebrews 12:15, which says "See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God." 
This verse helped me to see that through the Media Fast, I can point people towards Christ by my actions. With me not going on social media, it makes my friends ask about it, and it gives me a doorway into a conversation that wouldn't normally come up. I try not to push my faith onto my friends, but I should be living in a way that reflects Christ's presence in my life. 

I hope everyone is doing well, there's only 14 days left!!
Just keep thinking about Arizona!!!!!!
