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.

one week left.
its crazy, almost like I don't really miss my media anymore. My experience in the years that I have done the media fast is that the first week or so, you have some withdraws, because we are so used to always having our media right at our fingertips. as we go throughout March, and we begin to focus more and more on God, we begin to rely less on our media. That's the crazy thing about God, as we increase His value, other things in our life begin to pale in comparison, and their worth becomes much less prevalent in our lives. God should be the focus of our lives every day, and anything that distracts us from Him should be completely uprooted and gotten rid of. This, and other experiences during this time, have helped me, and my friends grow in our relationships with Christ. My friends noticed a change in the way I have been spending my time, and the way I have been treating others while on the media fast, and some have agreed to join with me in a media fast. so, thank you media fast, and high school staff for giving me an opportunity to be a testimony and have a ministry for Christ. I encourage you all to share what you have learned, and find new ways to be a light to those around you. I love you all and I cant wait for mission trip!
