This week on Real Talk with Rachael we’re talking with Wendy Speake about her new book, The 40-Day Sugar Fast: Where Physical Detox Meets Spiritual Transformation. As a trained actress and heartfelt Bible teacher, Wendy ministers to women’s hearts through storytelling and Biblical life applications. Co-author of the popular parenting books Triggers and Parenting Scripts, and host of the annual 40 Day Sugar Fast. Wendy lives in Southern California with her husband Matt and their 3 sons, where she blogs about faith and family at

We’re talking about:

  • “We know that God says come to me, and yet we go to our phones and our pantries…”
  • We know how sugar crashes affect our kids, it affects us in the same way.
  • It’s not just a food fast but a Word feast.
  • Doing the fast together, especially as mothers and daughters, can be a big benefit.
  • Rather than doing it to lose a few pounds, seek God and his righteousness first.
  • Even if your reasons for fasting aren’t perfect, God can still use it.
  • “My sugar fast broke my addiction to sugar, but my Social Media fast broke my addiction to the sugar of affirmation.”
  • The 40-Day Social Media Fast is available for Pre-Order now.
  • God wants the whole day with you, not just 15 minutes in the morning.
  • Let’s turn to God instead of turning to everything else.
