A busy military mother for many years, Whiting looked for creative ways to help her five children in faith and values. She uses the acronym SIMPLE (Schedule, Involve, Mix, Plan, Legacy, End each in prayer). Looking back she says, “I realize that our family devotions were the foundation of our family and the glue that held us together. It strengthened us as a family.” She says family time doesn’t need to be boring or formal. At a time when children are assaulted by values that are at odds with their health or beliefs, Whiting offers simple solutions for nurturing faith (Grasonville, Maryland).
