(Maria & Katie)
"The type of fast that I did was just tea and water for a day. The Bible became my food for the day and to tell you the truth it was delicious. That morning I went to church with Maria which was the perfect breakfast. Although, I walked the length of my apartment on Main Street to the end of New Milford (1.5 miles) which made my energy level very low later on in the day. Whenever I felt hungry even if it wasn't meal time I opened the Bible, which didn't make the hunger go away but made it more bearable- or at least I didn't think about it. It was a short fast but I feel that I grew closer with God. It surely strengthened the relationship that already exists. During the time of the fast life seemed to have some bumps in the road although the fast- even though it was only a day- helped to smooth some of those bumps out."
