Jeanette Whittaker
Pilgrim Institute


MRS. JEANETTE WHITTAKER inspires both children and adults with her interest in Biblical thinking and her passion for literature and learning. As a young teenager, she was challenged by her pastor to a conviction that the Word of God speaks to every aspect of life--including both individuals and institutions. This conviction prompts her to encourage others in the practice of Biblical research and reasoning regarding educational disciplines, topics of interest, qualities of character, and more. Her own education from an American Christian philosophy, combined with her ability as a captivating story-teller, makes her a welcome speaker on both historic and literary subjects. She currently serves in leadership for Pilgrim Institute, a ministry she has been part of since 1983. In addition to 10 years of classroom teaching at both elementary and secondary levels, she currently educates her two children at home. She is also a contributing author to The Mighty Works of God Providential history series for children, and is the co-author of An American Christian Approach for Teaching Christopher Columbus in the Primary Grades.
