“Fasting helps me stop, face that feeling, allowing it to pass, and then experiencing that wash of peace and purpose.” Unless you fast on a regular bases, it will be impossible for you to understand the deep, even overwhelming hunger I have to fast right now. I am starting a 14 day fast... [More]

Try Doing Nothing For 40 Days

September 20, 2013 at 7:48 AM
“If I am honest, doing nothing is never nothing for me. It involves spiritual warfare with my demons, and the longer I put off that unhappy appointment, the worse the warfare can be.”  The first thing I do before crawling out of bed is start creating a mental to-do list. It’s... [More]

July 1, 2013 at 6:04 AM
“I need to learn how to live in a busy, fun city and practice the discipline of fasting and solitude.” If you know me through my writing you would assume I’m an introvert—if you were a part of my circle of friends, you would know me as a funny, full on, extravert. The bigger... [More]
