Lisa has a passion for encouraging mothers from all walks of life and relates personally to the overwhelming and diverse experiences of parenting.
A Christian since age 10, Lisa attributes her relatively happy life despite her child-star status to her relationship with God. She says she “never felt the need to look in any other direction for happiness or contentment.” Lisa Whelchel is perhaps best known for her starring role as Blair Warner on NBC’s ‘The Facts of Life’ for nine years. More recently she was a contestant on ‘Survivor: Philippines’ (CBS) where she finished in the final three. In between her time on television, Lisa started MomTime Ministries, with a goal to refresh and equip other mothers.
Her book topics range from homeschooling to spiritual growth for busy moms to family communications issues and more. She has even published a devotional prayer journal, especially for grandmothers. She has contributed articles about her life and family to multiple publications, including People, Focus on the Family, and Home Life.
Lisa’s well-known name coupled with her warm nature and heart for ministry promises an outreach event perfect for all ages. An event with Lisa encourages invitations to those in your community investigating the Christian faith or who might not otherwise attend such an event.
Lisa has written several books including Creative Correction (which received a Gold Medallion Nomination in the Family and Parenting Category), Taking Care of the Me in Mommy, The Busy Mom's Guide To Prayer, and her autobiography, The Facts of Life and Other Lessons My Father Taught Me.
