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.

Its coming to the end of the media fast and I realize that this doesn't last forever. I think to myself for a little bit on how I've done and what I have learned. I go back to my Spotify playlist and shuffle my songs and the first song I hear is Forever from Chris Tomlin. I was listening closely to the lyrics and I thought it related to the media fast and questions I have today. One verse says "he is good he is above all things". When I heard this a thought clicked in my head as if It was meant to tell all of us that God is above all media, all technology, and anything on this Earth. I also thought to myself the word Forever. I realized that even though this media fast may not last forever our faith in God will and my striving to get closer to God will also last forever. I think God shows signs to everyone through there daily life even if its in a song or a book or media. God has worked through me all month and I now know that when your on media it covers or blinds you from what God has given us. This media fast is almost over and Easter is coming up and i'm making sure I notice everything that comes my way.
