At HOPE we are so excited to have Lisa Whelchel as our Celebrating Women speaker. Her inspirational story of overcoming transition and not losing herself in the process is a struggle many of us have faced. This theme in her life goes back to her early days as a child star and also can be seen in her current role on "Survivor", and as she goes through a divorce. I, for one, grew up watching her on "The Facts of Life". On that show Lisa was playing a part very different from who she is in her life, and who we see on "Survivor". Blair would have no trouble in the sneaky side of "Survivor". Lisa is playing a great game this season, but seems to finds it hard to engage in the darker side when it comes to voting people out. Last night (Nov 28th) she had a hard decision to make; was she going to betray a friend, or "play" the game. I think that Lisa made the right decision and is staying true to her beliefs.
I have always been a fan of Survivor, but I have not had such a stake in someone winning before.
