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.

Sorry I haven't posted yet,(I still say procrastination is an art, not a bad habit),and it (the fast) is now more than halfway over! I have still not had an extremely large amount of free time to allow for personal devotion, but I still have had more time than usual. I can't really say anything profoundly amazing has happened due to the fast that I am not used to, and I hope that isn't taken as a sign of uncommittedness (yes that's a word it's in the dictionary). I have some struggle with not becoming too involved with music and media in public situations, such as not singing a secular song, and just ignoring it instead, or looking away from TV's or people's phones. Even some things in class that aren't necessary to my success can be ignored such as the movie in English we're watching, "Brave New World". It is being shown in the class, but it isn't part of an assignment, it's just for fun. Not being required for school, I shouldn't watch it. Other than the public music thing, everything is going great. I have also received some very nice and encouraging letters from my sponsors throughout the fast, and I am glad to know that they are with through it. I hope that the fast is doing well for everyone, and I will continue my prayer for all of you, as I hope you will all do for me.
Bon chance, Nous allons finir bien!
