Wendi Lou Lee spent many years of her childhood on the set of the television series, Little House on the Prairie. She played "Baby Grace," the fourth daughter in the Ingalls family. On this episode of our podcast, Wendi shares some inside scoops on the TV show, takes us through the journey of life on set, and discusses her life-changing run-in with a brain tumor as an adult. Her memoir, Red Tail Feathers: Dare to Discover the Beauty of Grace, is a more in-depth take on this journey, highlighting how she felt God's presence and grace through it all. She also wrote A Prairie Devotional, daily readings and prayers based on the Little House TV series.
At the top of the episode, Lynne and Roy give Joey some constructive criticism on a recent episode about race, in which Joey had some regrets.
Little House on the Prairie TV series (1974-1983) was based on the Little House best-selling book series, written biographically by Laura Ingalls Wilder. The series shares the struggle of frontier-living in a post-Civil War, 19th century America. Famous actor, Michael Landon, (Bonanza) who played "Pa Ingalls," had a major hand in using the show to address issues, such as adoption, alcoholism, faith, poverty, blindness, racism, child abuse, and even rape. Although predominantly a drama, the program has many lighthearted and comedic moments, as well.
