Item description for The Facts of Life: And Other Lessons My Father Taught Me by Lisa Whelchel...

As Blair Warner on The Facts of Life, Lisa Whelchel matured from a snobby prep schooler to a responsible adult. Now the actress recounts the journey she's made in real life, from a shy, small-town girl in Texas to the glamorous life of fame and fortune in Hollywood -- and finally to suburban life as a pastor's wife and homeschooling mother of three. Poignant autobiographical stories reveal the developing trust in God that has enabled Lisa to grow in grace through seasons of pressure, pain, and prosperity.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Facts of Life: And Other Lessons My Father Taught Me?

Compelling and from the heart; a great read  Dec 6, 2008
Another celebrity book, or so I thought. My wife saw Lisa in person a couple of years ago and of course bought her book and enjoyed it. I didn't touch it even though she highly recommended it simply because it was another celebrity book and written from a woman's perspective. My preconceived ideas were changed one day however, when I was between books and grabbed it up out of shear boredom. Just a couple of pages later I was hooked and could not put it down. Lisa Whelchel can write! I immediately identified with this woman and came to love her. Having an ADHD child and a shared love for God made her real. Her story is as beautiful as Blair, minus the snob. (Yes, I watched Facts of Life and had a crush on Blair too).

Okay, Lisa, you taught me something: I guess you can't judge a book by..., well you know.
Great Book! Thanks!  Apr 13, 2008
I really enjoyed reading this book. It helped put my life into perspective. Sometimes we all run fast and live hard until we realize that there comes a point when we need to rest and come back home-----to God. I want to thank Lisa Whelchel for writing such a fine story. The title caught my eye since so many of us are familiar with the show that started off with so many memories. For me it was the beginning of the end of my elementary school life and the beginnings of my High School days and til It's last year (1987-1988) of my first year in college. I hope that with all of our memories and best times we also find the time to read Lisa's Book. Great book! Go get it! :)
Recommend (Just know what you are buying)  Mar 8, 2008
I enjoyed this book and was moved by it. I am a fan of Lisa's since her "Facts" days; I did my research first and I knew that the book did not have a lot of detail about her work on the show, so I didn't have those expectations. The book is religious in nature but in my opinion it was a very accessible, breezy read and I think there is something in it for everyone. In fact, I read it, and then I read it AGAIN as soon as I finished it! It really made me stop and think. I laughed, I cried, I said, "oh yeah, I know *exactly* what she's talking about!" Give it a look, it will be worth your time.
Great book  Sep 10, 2004
This book basically told the story of Lisa's life, from her childhood, to acting, and then about her marriage and parenthood. The chapters were well broken down into various aspects of her life, with her telling us what God has taught her at the end of each chapter. I loved the humor in the book, especially the words of wisdom from Lisa's mother.
I can really relate to her...  Jul 13, 2004
This book was a great read, and I have learned things from Lisa that are actually helping me get through the days. I didn't want to put it down until I finished it, and I want to get a copy for all my friends. She may have been a star, and she's different from me in plenty of ways. But she's also so much like me as a Christian woman, wife, and mother. When I'm having a rough day, I just remember reading about how she went through something similar and how she got through it, whether it be a major life struggle, or just dealing with my kids when they're having a particularly bad day.
I went to one of her Mom-Time conferences a couple of months ago, and there I learned that Lisa is so down to earth. The book shows that about her even more. It has been such a blessing to me already, and it's a book I plan to read at least once a year.
