Wild Child Ministries was created in 2006 with the purpose of bringing the hope of Christ to families struggling with wayward, rebellious, prodigal children. Wendi English was the founder of Wild Child Ministries and is the co-author of the book, Wild Child • Waiting Mom, which uniquely offers the story of her prodigal years from two perspectives; Wendi tells her life story as the prodigal and Karilee Hayden (Wendi’s mother) shares her journey as the waiting mom. With heartfelt passion, Wendi gave her testimony and insight through speaking engagements, interviews and singing. It was her desire to bring hope to the weary in the midst of their heartache.
Wild Child Ministries existed to minister to the parents of prodigals and wayward children. Wendi and Karilee know the heartache and pain of broken relationships between parents and children, because they experienced it first-hand. Their book, Wild Child • Waiting Mom, details the difficult years in their own lives. They know that Jesus Christ is the only source of hope, healing and restoration and shared His love with those who were hurting.
In 2014, Wild Child Ministries became inactive. Materials and some website content were moved to A Word from the Word (see Karilee’s Korner).
