Kara Durbin

Kara Durbin, author of Parenting with Scripture: A Topical Guide for Teachable Moments, has enjoyed serving in various roles of children’s ministries for over 20 years. She has a degree in elementary education from Texas A&M University and homeschools her children part-time through a University Model School.

Kara’s inspiration for her book was her mother, who blessed her life by parenting her with Scripture. When thinking about how to best parent her own children, Kara looked for a reference book that would have Scriptures to use for specific parenting moments. Not finding one, she began work on the book project. Parenting with Scripture has been a consistent seller for Moody Publishers, and Kara has been interviewed about the subject on over 50 radio programs nation-wide and globally through Focus on the Family. Kara, her husband, their children, and two crazy dogs make their home near Dallas, TX. For tips on parenting with Scripture and teachable moments, subscribe to her blog through
