Where Physical Detox Meets Spiritual Transformation

Now available wherever books are sold

What would you be willing to give up to experience 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 more of 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.

“Sick of the scale being the boss of me, I needed a different voice in my head. Then I stumbled on Wendy’s book The 40-Day Sugar Fast, and suddenly the spiritual connection between food, my heart, and God clicked for me. I started to see food as less of a reward or a temptation and more of a means to align my heart back with God’s. Food, like all of His good gifts, should always point us back to the Giver. It shouldn’t accuse us or guilt us. It should simply remind us what we need to sustain us. This shift in thinking has taken me forty days and beyond. And I’m so grateful for the mental overhaul more than any pounds lost. More than anything I want to be able to say with Jesus, ‘My food is to do the will of him who sent me’ (John 4:34). And traveling with Wendy and the 40-Day Sugar Fast community was the beginning of that journey for me.”

Lisa-Jo Baker, bestselling author of Never Unfriended and Surprised by Motherhood

“If Wendy is leading, I want to follow. This woman is exceptionally wise with an impressive earnestness for leading people to the feet of Jesus. She is a highly respected mentor and communicator with a passion for pointing people to what matters most. Wendy is much more than a writer who can string a bunch of nice words on the page. Her words bring real results.”

Jennifer Dukes Lee, author of The Happiness Dare and Love Idol

“Too many Christian women today feel trapped by sugar cravings and addiction, wondering if they’ll ever break free. Through her annual 40-Day Sugar Fast, Wendy has offered thousands of women, myself included, the opportunity to taste the sweetness of Jesus and experience His bondage-breaking power in their lives. Truly, freedom and fullness are found only in Jesus’s presence, and Wendy has proven herself a worthy guide year after year.”

“Every day for forty days, I said, Jesus, I need You. You are enough. That prayer changed my life.”

Chanda T., CA

“Fasting has unlocked so many doors inside my heart that were closed off for far too long. I have a long way to go with some of the things God has revealed, but for the first time, I feel equipped. I feel ready to put on the full armor, step out onto the battlefield, and fight the good fight. Thank you, Wendy.”

 Barbara N., MI

“Over these forty days it has been refreshing to not run to sweets every time something went wrong. Since I didn’t run to sweets first, Bible verses came to mind when I needed them—at the most appropriate times, in a way I hadn’t experienced before. God faithfully showed me that He has been there waiting for me to simply seek Him. I feel like this is just the beginning—I feel that God broke strongholds I’ve lived with for so many years.”

Beth I., CA

“I am teary just thinking of where I am now compared to forty days ago. I am twenty-nine pounds lighter, my skin and mind are clearer, and (most importantly) I am closer to my one true love, Jesus. He was so good to me during this fast. I have never been able to resist sugar before. And yet, I have not missed it. Oh how He loves me!”

 Lynn K., MA

“It’s been years since I’ve gone more than three days without chocolate. I knew this fast was something I needed to do. Chocolate made days doable. Now, I’m learning Jesus makes days doable. And livable. And abundantly full.”
