Wow Rachael; you go! I am intrigued, and looking forward to hearing about your financial fasting experience. The thought of personally embarking on a fast makes me extremely nervous, most likely some irrational fear of perceived deprivation. Perhaps I will gain comfort with the concept as I hear of more mamas trying it with positive results, and eventually embark on a mini-fast of my own.
