Darla Blanton


Married to Mike Blanton. I have six kids, eight grandsons and one granddaughter.

Ministry Experience

Director of a Christian school for 19 years. On staff at LifePointe since 2005.

Book/Author Recommendations

I don’t have a favorite author. I love reading so many different things.

Fun Facts

It took me 8 years to finish my degree because I had 3 young children at home and worked full time. I took classes at night while teaching Sunday school and Mission Friends. My beautiful Christian mother was such an example. She served, read her Bible every day and lived for the Lord. A Christian mother is such a gift from God.


Attended college in San Diego as a Child Development major.

Favorite Scripture

Matthew 19:14 “But Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.’”

Favorite Types of Music

I really love Christian Music, especially praise songs.
