40 Days of Decrease: A Different Kind of Hunger. A Different Kind of Fast. by Alicia Britt Chole 

What if you fasted regret?
What if your friends fasted comparison?
What if your generation fasted escapism?
What if your community fasted spectatorship?

Such heart-fasts could trigger a spiritual revolution!

Via readings, reflection questions, daily fasts, ancient quotes, and more, this is the dream of 40 Days of Decrease: A Different Kind of Hunger. A Different Kind of Fast.
Every day offers a meaningful consideration of Jesus’ journey and then invites readers into a daily fast of heart-clutter, the stuff that sticks to our souls and weighs us down. 
You can begin your forty-day journey any time of the year, but you may find it especially meaningful as a Lenten preparation to live in awe of Jesus’ resurrection.  

Each daily, 1000-word entry will include

  • a devotional based on Jesus’ cross-ward life;
  • a reflection question to guide journaling or group discussion;
  • a heart fast to inspire a tangible response;
  • a thought-provoking Lenten quote;
  • an optional sidebar into the historical development of Lent.
  • a suggested reading that takes you from John 12 to John 21
  • journaling space for reflection

In the same way self cannot satisfy self no matter how long it feasts, self cannot starve self no matter how long it fasts. Decrease—like increase—is only holy when its destination is love. 
We thin our lives to thicken our communion with God.

Dare to live awed by Christ’s resurrection!

Intuitive, prophetic, and profoundly inspiring, calling forth a revolution of soul health, stirring our passion to know Jesus more.”
—DARLENE ZSCHECH, Composer, Worship Leader, Pastor, and Speaker
“God has sounded a clear chor d of revelation through Alicia Chole. God uses her to lovingly guide the reader into recognizing His presence, purpose, and power in times of necessary loss.”
—DR. CLAUDE R. ALEXANDER, JR., Lead Pastor of The Park Baptist Church, Charlotte, NC
