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!
Every daily reading includes:
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. Join Alicia as you thin your heart clutter in order to thicken your communion with God.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Lance Witt, founder of Replenish Ministries, former executive pastor of Saddleback Church

    Alicia Britt Chole has an eloquence and thoughtfulness with words that are a rare gift. Her writings have deeply influenced me and I keep going back to them again and again. Her insights will help you linger over the sayings of Jesus and, more importantly, help you love Jesus more deeply.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Dr. Nathan Foster, author of The Making of an Ordinary Saint

    Alicia does something quite remarkable with this book. Her gentle and poetic prose invites us to forgo life’s clutter and heavy burdens, leading us to joy and freedom of a deeper life with God. So practical. So helpful.

    Noemi Chavez, pastor, speaker

    40 Days of Decrease offers an invitation to an unguarded awareness of self. A revealing manuscript that will bend the focus of the soul from exhaustive self managing to reveal the beauty, the power and strength of the presence of Jesus magnified.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    Darlene Zschech, composer, worship leader, speaker

    My dearest friend Alicia has done it again. And this time bringing our thoughts and attention to our interior life as we journey through LENT together. She writes with her whole heart laid bare, intuitive, prophetic, and profoundly inspiring, calling forth a revolution of soul health, stirring our passion to know Jesus more.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    Dr. William H. Curtis, Senior Pastor, Mount Ararat Baptist Church

    After experiencing Alicia lead a retreat with pastors, I wanted my entire congregation to be blessed in retreat with her. “The Mount.” as we affectionately refer to our church, is more than a century old and predominately African American. We used 40 Days of Decrease as a congregation and then experienced the author herself. I am still praising God for the way the Lord used Alicia to open the wellsprings of increased devotion in our congregation. The history of Mount Ararat will record as a pivotal turning point in our devotional life when “40 days” was lifted for corporate consumption!
