Episode 151 - Wendy Speake - Anger Triggers and What We Can Do About it

Ready to Thrive

This episode actually wasn’t recorded for the Ready to Thrive podcast, it was a conversation I shared with Wendy for my Mama Get Your Life Back group. I loved it so much I felt like it would be worth sharing with my Ready to Thrive audience as well! Wendy and I discuss her first book, Triggers, and what we can actually do when we are triggered by our kids actions.

67: Fasting For Spiritual Growth With Wendy Speake


We’re just a couple weeks away from Lent, and I have a few interviews coming up that will help prepare our minds and hearts for it, including today’s interview with Wendy Speake.  Wendy is the author of many books including The 40 Day Sugar Fast, The 40-Day Social Media Fast, and the book where I initially discovered her: Parenting Triggers, which she co-authored with Amber Lia.  You know I’m a big fan of purposeful hardship; I have plenty of blogs and interviews dedicated to just that topic. But it’s not just about the resilience. It's not just about ditching a sugar habit or quitting social media.  It’s about what you’re gaining– when you free your mind and time and soul of your subconscious habits and crutches, you open your heart to so much more.  That’s what Wendy’s books are about, and what we focus on in this interview. We chat about how to use fasting as a tool for spiritual growth, figuring out what you turn to in times of stress, and what comes after the fast.  I really enjoyed this conversation with Wendy, and I’m excited to share it with you today! If today's episode resonates with you, be sure to tag, comment, or message the show's Instagram page and let us know what you think!   Mentioned in the episode: The 40 Day Sugar Fast The 40-Day Social Media Fast Parenting Triggers Connect with Wendy: Website Instagram Facebook Connect with me: Website Instagram Facebook This episode first appeared at emilyrichett.com/episode-67.

Wendy Speake | Why Fast?, 154

Grace Enough Podcast

Wendy Speake joins Amber to talk about fasting and how it can drive us feast upon the Lord. Questions Wendy and Amber discuss about fasting:(7:16) Fasting can be intimidating and like many spiritual disciplines I think Christians are unsure how to go about fasting with a focus on the Lord vs. focusing on self.  Will you take us back and share when you began fasting regularly and what it looks like to rely on the Lord vs self?(12:07) What are some of the temptations people have shared when you’re in the middle of the fast?(19:49) What are some ways you encourage people to really push through the hard parts of fasting?(29:42) You have written the 40 day Sugar fast and the 40 day social media fast.  What led you to write those books?(36:07) As we close, how has fasting changed your life with God?Why Fast Quotes to Remember:“[To] really be undistracted so that we might be devoted to feasting on his presence, feasting on his word, feasting on this dialogue through prayer with him and and that’s really what fasting is.”“It can be a private thing. In Matthew, we’re told fasting is done in private. But in the Old Testament we’re shown fasting is done as a corporate opportunity to trust God for deliverance together.”SHOW NOTES contResources Mentioned:Book: The 40 Day Sugar Fast by Wendy SpeakeBook: The 40 Day Social Media Fast by Wendy SpeakeThe 40 Day Sugar FastRelated Episodes:152: Sharon Garlough Brown | Spiritual Practices & Formation153: Sarah Geringer | Christian Meditation154: Ashley Hales | Embracing Limits------------------------------------------------------Follow Grace Enough Podcast on IG and FBand www.graceenoughpodcast.com----------------------------------------------------------Learn more about your ad choices.
