About Wendy Speake
As a trained actress and heartfelt Bible teacher, Wendy Speake ministers to women’s hearts through storytelling, both on page and stage. She utilizes drama, comedy, poetry, and the study of God’s Word. During her career in Hollywood, on shows such as JAG, Melrose Place, Star Trek Voyager, and Roswell, Wendy found herself longing to tell stories that edify and encourage women! She now writes stories that move readers closer to Jesus.
In their first book, "Triggers: Exchanging Parents' Angry Reactions for Gentle Biblical Responses," Wendy and co-author Amber Lia, help parents who struggle with angry, reactionary parenting, by pointing them toward biblical principles. Their Triggers Study Guide takes them deeper in God's Word, where true transformation can be found. Their follow-up book, Parenting Scripts, takes the lessons from Biblical principles to application, where they help parents script actual scripts to speak to their children in the most ordinary and exasperating moments of family life.
Wendy is also co-author of "Life Creative: Inspiration for Today's Renaissance Mom," with Kelli Stuart. Life Creative is a missive of encouragement to creative moms, telling the stories of 30 women who are living inspired and inspiring lives in the midst of motherhood.
Wendy Speake blogs about faith and family, motherhood and marriage, at WendySpeake.com. She resides in sunny San Diego with her handsome husband and their three ruddy boys.

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.
In the pattern of her popular 40-Day Sugar Fast, Wendy Speake offers you The 40-Day Social Media Fast.
