Lisa Whelchel

The former child actor was known for starring in The Facts of Life. She didn’t maintain an active career but instead was in and out of projects. She appeared in A Madea Christmas in 2013. She is now a dedicated Christian and speaks about her faith at churches and conferences.

She became an author and wrote several best selling books about parenting and homeschooling. She was criticized for her ‘hot sauce’ method of disciplining children to the degree that ABC News had a poll and reported that they tallied 65% of parents who did not approve of her hot saucing method.
