Event Details

  • This month, the focus for the Healthful Living group is on fasting, an important part of spiritual health. Because there are many who have told us they are not familiar with fasting, but would like to know more, the event will be not only for those who are participating in a fast, but also a place to share resources about fasting. While fasting from food is the standard way to fast, you can also fast from other things, especially if you have never fasted before and just would like to "get your feet wet" on the subject or have health issues that require a strict diet. Looking forward to an amazing month in Him!

    Sylvia Todd: We have a friend who is doing a "Whole 30" fast (essentially, fruits, veg and meat, but no dairy, grains, or processed foods) for the purpose of lifting up our nation. There are many ways to fast, and that is probably one most of us could do!

    • Sylvia Todd and Dion Todd like this.
    • Carol  Pady
      Sylvia Todd Great article, Carol, thank you :)! I believe that if even Jesus had to fast, and said that some things required fasting, it's quite an error for us to think that we will have a victorious life without it.

      Carol Pady Amen huge amen!!

    Sylvia Todd: So He said to them, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.” ~ Mark 9:29 (NKJV) - If you are in need of breakthrough and there is nothing left that you can do, it may be a time to press in with prayer and fasting!

    Sylvia Todd: “Fasting… opens the way for the outpouring of the Spirit and the restoration of God’s house. Fasting in this age of the absent Bridegroom is in expectation of His return. Soon there will be the midnight cry, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’...  more

    Sylvia Todd: We made this chili yesterday, along with some veggie kebobs as part of Daniel fasting. When fasting, it's common to feel somewhat cold, so having something that is hearty and hot is a blessing! It turned out quite delicious and fresh tasting!
