In this episode we have a conversation with Katherine Becker, author of “The Dating Fast: 40 Days to Reclaim Your Heart, Body, and Soul”. Katherine is wonderfully articulate in describing her experience with “fasting” from the dating scene and how others can benefit from the practice. The books description really does describe it best:
The endless cycle of boyfriends and breakups got to be exhausting–emotionally and spiritually. When a friend introduced Katherine to the idea of the “dating fast,” she rediscovered her joy for life. You don’t have to “kiss dating good-bye,” but a forty-day, Scripture-based retreat from the fray works wonders. Romantic love isn’t dead, says Katherine, but you have to know where to look for it.
