#28: How to Maximize Your Prayer Life with Fasting

Sugar doesn’t make a mom sweet.

What would you be willing to give up to experience the presence of God in your life again? Especially in the every day moments of motherhood? Many of us sign up for a physical detox program, thinking that if our bodies are healthier, then we’re healthier. But a healthy body doesn’t do us a lot of good if we are spiritually malnourished.

Fasting and prayer actually go hand-in-hand to connect our hearts to the heart of God in a powerful way. But don’t be overwhelmed! If you’re like us, you didn’t grow up with a good understanding of what fasting really is, or can be. Wendy Speake, author of the 40 Day Sugar Fast, is here to teach us the basics, and give us practical steps for using fasting to take our prayer lives to the next level!
