Publisher's Summary

What would you be willing to give up to gain the presence of God in your life again? 

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.  

Welcome to The 40-Day Sugar Fast, a fast that begins with us giving Jesus our sugar and ends with Jesus giving us himself - the only thing that can ever truly satisfy our soul's deep hunger. On this 40-day journey you'll learn how to stop fixating on food and other things you use to fill the voids in life and instead fix your eyes on Christ. 

Anyone who runs to sugar for comfort or a reward, who eats mindlessly or out of boredom, who feels physically and spiritually lethargic, or who struggles with self-control will discover here not only freedom from their cravings but an entirely new appetite for the good things God has for us.

I bought audible and paper back with NO regrets!

Wendy Speake is not only an amazing Christian loving smart woman she is so good at reading this already amazing book to you. At first I had just gotten the audible version but there were so many points that I wanted to highlight and hear/read again that a friend gifted me the book. It just made it all the more better being able to read along but mostly pray along out loud with Wendy Speake. I will be doing this fast every January and plan to start the social media fast for Lent. This book has changed my life in so many ways but my favorite is my new hunger for Christ more than anything else!

This was just what I needed!

This was perfect for me! I listened to 1 chapter every morning as part of my daily devotional. I've lost weight, my joints feel better and it helped me focus on God instead of food. I will do the 40 day sugar fast every 6 months just to reinforce what I've learned. Thank you!

Wonderful Christian counsel!

This book was so much more than fasting from sugar. It has made more sense to me than anything I have ever read about the need to remove sugar from my diet. It has turned my eyes in the direction they should have pointing all along, to Christ, to sustain me.

Timeless

Loved it! I thought this was just going to be about fasting from sugar but it's much more than that. Definitely a book that gets to the root of our heart issues. Will read this again and again.

Can’t stand it

I can’t even finish this book. So much of what she says is ridiculous. She makes it seem like we can’t have passions outside of God. She thinks we need to fast from everything we love. If I fast from my phone I lose using my Bible app and I use it every day, several times a day. Just because I use my phone a lot or I enjoy social media does not mean I put them above God. Also, her voice grates on the nerves.

Execellent book

Everything I needed to stay the course of my fast. Deep devotional that exposes many areas in need of healing. Scripture is abundant throughout.

Great book!

Hi my name is Victoria and I’m a sugar addict.

I’ve recently realized I have a problem with sugar, which stems from a lack of self control, which has at times reeked havoc on my relationship with God. It’s time I get control and build up my relationship with the Lord. I’m excited to get started on this journey. Excited and a little scared. Coming off sugar is hard so I could use some prayers. Now that I’ve listened to the audiobook I am going to go back through and actually fast along with the book.
Oh and Wendy Speake your voice is soo calming it just added to how easy it was for me to love this book!

Practical and helpful

I enjoyed this book - it was both practical and helpful. The author uses beautiful language and similes each day to teach and inspire and she does this with a meek and gentle spirit. She also uses examples and testimonies out of her own life that are encouraging. She has a lovely voice and places emphasis at the appropriate places. Each day’s listen is short (9 minutes or less) and therefore easily doable, and could double up as your Bible reading for the day.

It was like having a personal guide...

This is my third book with this author. I wouldn't have been able to get through the 40 days without this. Inspired. It seemed that every time I came up against something, wanted to throw in the towel, got comfortable, needed a challenge or was about to get complacent and shift focus; the next devotional spoke to those thoughts. It was a nice touch that the book is read by the author. It's enabled me to start the journey to a deeper and inner work. Highly, highly recommend.
