Lisa has lived, at least, as many lives as a cat in her 50-some-odd years. You may know Lisa Whelchel best from her days playing “Blair” on the 80’s television show, “The Facts of Life.” Or, perhaps, from her 39 excruciating days on CBS’s show, “Survivor” in 2011. If you’re old enough, you may even remember watching her as a kid on Walt Disney’s “The New Mickey Mouse Club” in the 70’s. You may even have one of the cassette tapes of her Grammy-nominated album, “All Because of You.”
Lisa’s favorite role – by far! – has been as a mother to her three children and now, two children-in-love. Leaving show business to be a stay-at-home mom, she homeschooled her children through high school (with lots of help during the high school years. 🙂 ) She was married for 23 years to Steve, who is still one of her dearest friends.
Along the way, she has authored over a dozen books, is an inspirational speaker before audiences as large as 24,000, started MomTime groups across the nation, was one of the first bloggers (before “blog” was even a word,) and was a “Personal Mom Coach” before coaching was cool.
