A Fond Farewell....For Now

By reading the title, you might have guessed what I'm getting ready to do. Or rather, where I'm getting ready to go.

This past weekend my family and I had the privilege of representing Doorposts at the IAHE convention.

Corrie, Emily, me, Isaac, Mackenzie, Dad, and Mom
During a rare moment, I was able to escape running the booth and went and watched the movie, Captivated.
About ten minutes into the movie, I decided that I was going on a media fast for a month. I was already thinking of how I would write my farewell blog post. 

I have let the computer control my life for too long. I need to put a stop to it. It's almost as if the computer has become an idol in my heart. This is very, very wrong, and I know that. I have replaced God with another god. As a result some things have not been so food. I realize that now.

In case you're wondering what all I'm taking a fast from for a month, here is the complete list:
  • No computer time, except to work on my novel, and do my schoolwork
  • No movies
  • No Internet whatsoever, except to do my schoolwork online.
  • Limited music
I will be around till Thursday. I start my fast Friday. 

I am not regretting leaving, well....sorta, but I need this. I am already looking forward to seeing what God is going to teach me while I endure this fast.

Press on toward the mark, and fight the good fight!!


  1. Good for you Haley...Nothing wrong with this...Although I shall miss you awfully... ^_^ Good thing phones & letters aren't computerfied...haha... <3 Love you!

  4. I'll miss your posts too, but I think that's awesome. Remember a media fast doesn't mean much if you don't boost your Bible and prayer time. Write me regularly and Farewell!!!
