I’m by no means an expert on the topic of fasting, but, I have attempted to make it a part of my life — and I have a deep appreciation for it, perhaps even a love for it! So what I can share, I want to!
I’m particularly excited because I see many of my friends who are University students wanting to enter into this grace of fasting, especially with the 40 Day University fast that was just called (website here, facebook here). Many people are unsure of how fasting works, and don’t have much info on how to do it. So, I thought I’d just use this post to share some helpful resources and thoughts that I’ve shared on fasting. Feel free to chime in with comments or questions, even helpful hints for others.
