Rediscover the discipline of fasting

Four years ago, Susan Gregory launched “The Daniel Fast” blog because others were curious about how to have a successful fasting experience.  Later, she put all of her information into a book and recently an expanded version has been published which includes the book, recipes and a 21-day devotional.

“The Daniel Fast” is based on the diet in the book of Daniel and is an experience for your whole person:  body, soul and spirit.  According to Gregory, “sometimes you are so hungry, the only way to be fed is to fast.”  The one thing that Gregory is adamant about is that fasting is always about food.  The very definition is “to restrict food for a spiritual purpose.”  The Daniel Fast is a partial fast in which certain foods are restricted.  It has become a very popular form of fasting and is based on Jewish fasting principles.

If you are hungry for more of God in your life and want to discover the discipline of fasting, Gregory’s book will show you the steps and provide recipes for you to try.  It is exhaustive and informative and will help you through your 21-day journey.  Having all of the information you need in one place will help you succeed and encounter God in a new and amazing way.
