Consecrate Your Year to the Lord with a January Fast

If you’ve felt excluded from the realm of fasting because of low blood sugar, child-bearing, or health history … good news. You have options! You are not excluded any more!

In this guide, learn about the four types of fasting. Know what to expect along the way.

In 1982, Bob Perry prayed, “Lord, teach me how to fast and pray. I want to become really good at this.”

He had almost no one to teach him, though he did his best.

Over time the Lord did, indeed, teach him how to fast from a place of joy, rather than from a place of pain.

In fact, a Bob-style fast is so rich, it feels more like a feast.

This complete guide to the 21-day f(e)ast opens up fasting to everyone.

• Scheduled readings to help you prepare for the fast, walk through the fast, and come off the fast

Morning and evening readings for 21 days, plus additional content

• Drawn from four decades of experience and wisdom

What to expect: spiritually, physically, relationally, emotionally

• Stories and testimonies

Specific instruction around increased dreams, unexpected words coming to mind, how to help your family prepare, and more

Book Sample

The Marathon and the Spa

So often the narrative of fasting can feel like, “You’re going to run a marathon. It won’t be fun, and you’ll probably collapse at the end. But you know what they say: no pain, no gain.”


With an invitation like that ... who wouldn’t want in?!

Let’s reframe the invitation.

More properly, I think the picture is: “Come to the spa. You’ll get a massage, which won’t always be comfortable. And you’ll sit in the sauna, which will make you sweat. But it’s worth it, and you’ll leave in a glow. Come on! We’d love to have you!”

Think about Daniel and his friends at the end of their ten days, not emaciated and distressed, but with a healthy glow.

The invitation to fast is the invitation to pursue Jesus more.

Oh, Jesus, I’m coming after you. I’m coming to celebrate your goodness. I’m ready to feast on you.

An invitation to come and dine.

“I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.”

Real insights from real readers.

It’s really good. I can’t stop reading it. There’s so much.

Jaime McArdle

Used this book as a guide while participating in a 21 day group fast. It was very helpful to have the encouragement, the direction, and the offer of freedom to follow how I was called to fast. I appreciated how it encouraged me to pursue God’s call for my fast and how to listen for all God had for me. The encouragement regularly brought me to tears.

Amazon Review

I love my book! I've been reading it since the start of the F(e)ast. I prefer Feasting than the traditional Fasting. The burden to deprive myself has always been the goal. But Feasting takes away the burden and allows me to focus on my relationship with Our Father.

Amy King

Appreciating the wealth within this book!! Such a brilliant resource!

Nicole Kuhl

This book is thorough in explaining the power and purpose of spiritual fasting while also including practical tips. I found it to be beautifully gentle in that the focus is not so much on doing something for God as a spiritual discipline, but rather on accepting an invitation from the Lord to something deeper and greater through the fast. It’s not about deprivation, but about having a heart posture to receive even more—hence the F(e)ast in the fast. I also treasured the daily morning and evening encouragements.
