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.

Well this is going to be harder than I thought.

This is my first year doing the media fast. That said I did not know what to expect. My first day was hard to say the least. I have not tried to not play video games or watch tv for a long period of time before. I have not  realized how dependent I was on them for escape from my real life how often I run to media to try to forget instead of facing my problems. I hope that this month would help me grow as a person and as a follower of Christ. To everybody doing the media fast I'll be praying for you I know you guys can do it!

  1. Malachi,
    Just wanted to let you know our family has been praying for you and all of the media fasters this week. We know what you are doing is hard and applaud your desire and willingness to sacrifice some of your favorite things in order to be closer to the Lord. We are praying for Jesus to reveal himself to you in new ways and for your heart to be drawn to Him like never before. We are praying that you don't let guilt over failures sidetrack you from the purpose of this fast. If you fall, get back up and keep at it. He is faithful to forgive and He will continually renew you. Remember that your faith is an encouragement to those around you! "Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord" Psalm 31:24
    With love and prayers,
    The Kistner Family
    John, Laura, Camille (13) and Elaine (10)
