It’s Time for Bible Believers to Become Bible Readers! with Wendy Speake
Kicking off the New Year right!
Happy New Year and Welcome to the Monica Swanson podcast! If you missed last week’s episode, I hope you can go back and have a listen (it’s SHORT!) In this new year I am rebranding the podcast with a new name and a broader scope, but the heart of the podcast has not changed. I am SO excited to dive into some great topics and interviews ahead. (Also: Welcome to the girl moms joining us!)
Today’s interview is special for so many reasons. First, Wendy Speake was my very first guest over 3.5 years ago when I launched the Boy Mom Podcast; it only made sense she would also help me kick off this new season of the podcast!
Second, Wendy has a new book coming out this month which is so much of my heart for all of us this year: The 40-Day FEAST is a follow up to her books, “The 40-Day Sugar Fast” and “The 40-Day Social Media Fast.” The Feast she is referring to is the kind where we consume God’s Word…learning to read it, study it, and hide it in our hearts. And friends: Living in this world today I cannot emphasize enough how important this is. I am really excited about Wendy’s new book and I am excited to feast on God’s Word in the New Year alongside all of you! (Deal?! Deal!).

1 + 3 questions to ask when you read the Bible:
(Pre-reading): “Did I come to hear from the Lord today?”
1. What did I learn about God in what I read?
2. What did I learn about myself?
3. How do I need to live differently as a result of what I read?

My book, BOY MOM, was released in August of 2019 (Waterbrook Multnomah) and is full of practical advice and helpful resources for raising boys. It’s great for personal reading, or to use as a study for small groups!
