After graduating from the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history, Barbara joined the staff of Cru in 1971. Her husband, Dennis, whom she married in 1972, is the President and CEO of FamilyLife, a ministry of Cru. Together they have six children, plus five grafted in by marriage, and 22 grandchildren.
Barbara is a frequent speaker and resource for FamilyLife Today®, the award winning nationally syndicated daily radio broadcast. She is the author or coauthor of more than 35 books, including the Moments Together for Couples, and Moments With You marriage devotionals, the Growing Together series of books for families, A Symphony in the Dark and her most recent Letters to My Daughters: The Art of Being a Wife.
Having faithfully served alongside Dennis for more than 43 years, both in ministry and at home, Barbara has recently launched a new endeavor called Ever Thine Home®. This new line of home décor and teaching tools for families makes it easy for women to express faith at home in a way that is both biblical and beautiful. Her heart for Ever Thine Home is based on the familiar Old Testament instruction:
“And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” (Deuteronomy 6:9, ESV)
