Child Actress Turned Author - What One Of The Actresses Who Played Grace On "Little House On The Prairie" Is Up To These Days

 



Mercy: Can you share a little bit about yourself. 
WendiWendi Lou Lee is the wife of her handsome husband, mother of two awesome teenagers, author of A Prairie Devotional, and an upholsterer who spends way more time than she would like working in her garage. When Wendi isn’t visiting Little House sites, writing, or speaking; you can find her paddleboarding at the beach or walking their Bernedoodle—Mo. 


Mercy: Can you share a little bit about being a child actress? 

Wendi: My twin sister and I started on Little House when we were eight months old and worked for four seasons. You could say that we grew up on the set, we didn't know any different. We loved the interactions with the cast and of course hanging out on location at Big Sky Ranch. We had a lot of fun, but there was work too. We had to follow directions very closely and be quiet when the cameras were rolling. In a sense, our time on the set forced us to grow up earlier than most young children.


Mercy: What was your favorite memory from onset of Little House On The Prairie?

Wendi: I'd have to say the Christmas episode in season eight... Christmas They Never Forgot. It was so fun playing in the fake snow and we had more scenes in that episode than normal. What four-year-old would want to be opening presents, licking candy canes, and playing in the snow in LA during September?



Mercy: What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
Wendi: I almost always burn the grilled cheese, but my family says I'm an excellent cook.

Mercy: What do you like to do in your free time?
Wendi: Paddleboarding, playing volleyball, reading, and hiking.

Mercy: Can you share a little about A Prairie Devotional?
Wendi: Writing A Prairie Devotional was a dream come true. It's a collection of stories about my life and the episodes of Little House, about the ups and downs we all face and how God walks with us through every joy and every sorrow.



Mercy: What is your favorite under-appreciated novel? 
Wendi: I tend to find myself reading more non-fiction these days... personal experience stories and memoir. Wonder, The Hate You Give, Love Does  

Mercy: What is your favorite Bible verse? Is there a reason it has special meaning?
Wendi: Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him so that you may overflow.  When I was going through my brain tumor stuff I called it my Journey of Trust. This verse was central in keeping me on track and God filled me with so much joy and peace. 

Mercy: Why do you think Little House On The Prairie is still as popular today as when it originally aired?
Wendi: Little House on the Prairie has stood the test of time where so many other television shows have not. I believe its popularity reflects people's desire for stories centered around faith in God and the importance of family. Viewers longing for simpler times and goodwill between neighbors continue to be drawn to the characters as they navigate the trials of life and serve as role models of courageous and faithful living. 

Mercy: What is your favorite aspect of being an author?
Wendi: Making an impact on people's lives... I love hearing from readers who are encouraged or challenged by my book.

Mercy: Where can fans connect with you on social media?
Wendi: On Facebook -
