Karis Kimmel Murray is the oldest daughter of Christian relationship expert and bestselling, award winning author Dr. Tim Kimmel. Karis grew up in the family that was the proving ground for the philosophy that turned traditional Christian parenting advice on its head. Her parent's radical message has helped transform relationships in tens of thousands of Christian families through her father's book, Grace Based Parenting(R), as well as the Grace-Based Parenting (TM) and Grace-Filled Marriage training events and video studies. Her debut book, Grace Based Discipline, builds on her family heritage and insider authority to shed light on what radical, grace-based discipline looks like in a Gospel-centered home. Her step-by-step, grace-based approach to discipline empowers parents to be at their best, even when their kids are at their worst. As the Creative Director for Family Matters(R) (the ministry behind the "grace message", ) Karis writes and speaks to a growing global audience to testify to the powerful influence grace-based parenting had on her upbringing, and as a parent now herself, why she and her husband are raising their daughters the same way. With conversational style and humor, Karis connects with her readers and audiences on a heart level and swaps stories of trial and triumph...straight from the trenches of parenting. Karis is the writer and co-host of the Family Matters Minute, a daily, one-minute radio segment heard by nearly 4.5 Million people every weekday. Karis and her husband Mike reside in Scottsdale, Arizona with their two teenage daughters and a menagerie of pets.
