In this episode, Val talks with author Asheritah Ciuciu about fasting. This is a practice that can seem mysterious or ancient. Through this conversation, we begin to see the purpose of fasting in our modern-day lives and specific examples of what God can do when we’re faithful to obey this command.
Asheritah Ciuciu is a bestselling author, national speaker, and host of the Prayers of REST podcast. A Romanian missionary kid, she’s passionate about helping women all over the world find joy in Jesus through creative and consistent time in God's Word. Asheritah is married to her high school sweetheart and together they raised their three spunky kids in NE Ohio.
