Lisa Diane Whelchel is an American actress, singer, songwriter, author, and public speaker. She is known for her appearances as a Mouseketeer on "The New Mickey Mouse Club" and her nine-year role as the preppy and wealthy Blair Warner on "The Facts of Life." In 1984, she was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Inspirational Performance for her contemporary Christian album, "All Because of You." In 2012, Whelchel participated as a contestant on the CBS competitive reality series "Survivor: Philippines" and tied for second place. She was also voted fan favorite and was awarded $100,000.
Whelchel has been a regular inspirational speaker at churches and conferences nationwide since 2004. In 2000, she founded Momtime Ministries, a religious network of mothers' groups who meet weekly to "equip and refresh and encourage" each other. In 2009, she began touring with the Women of Faith conferences, speaking on various issues including motherhood, child discipline and friendship.
Whelchel has written ten books on motherhood, child discipline, adult friendships, homeschooling, and finding Jesus through the development of holiday traditions. Additional topics from a spiritual point of view include prayer and wisdom. She is the bestselling author of "So You're Thinking About Homeschooling" and "The Facts of Life (and Other Lessons My Father Taught Me)."
While Whelchel has been honored as a Gold Medallion nominee for her book on child discipline, entitled Creative Correction, she has received negative press and criticism by both Christian and non-Christian parenting groups for her views. In a 2005 interview with talk show host Drew Marshall, Whelchel spoke about her books on motherhood and shared her ideas on child discipline presented in the book.
