Written by Wendi Lou Lee who portrayed Baby Grace Ingalls in the NBC television series “Little House on the Prairie,” A Prairie Devotional is a collection of stories which hopes to encourage and inspire people to live the way Charles and Caroline Ingalls lived: devoted to their faith in God, love for their family, and to spreading kindness to the people around them. It is an inspirational compilation of heartwarming stories much like what the writers and producers of the television series hoped to tell and similar to what Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote in her books. Wendi Lou Lee blends personal anecdotes with stories and quotes from the TV show, inviting contemplation of the ideas and values that made the books and series so popular.

The four seasons she spent on Little House on the Prairie playing Baby Grace Ingalls are among God’s greatest blessings. In 2015, Wendi was diagnosed with a brain tumor that changed the direction and purpose of her life. Her surgery and recovery led to a newfound freedom, sharing her story of God’s goodness through life’s most difficult circumstances. Connecting with people—one person at a time—brings Wendi the most joy. Wendi, her husband, and their two teenagers call the Central Coast of California their home.
