There are no further details about the author’s parents and siblings (if any).
The 46 years old is assumed to be a college graduate even though she has also not said anything about the level of education she has acquired. Some sources say that she developed an interest in creative writing and acting while schooling at a local high school. Cara is also said to have obtained her Bachelor’s degree in 1998 or thereabout.
Cara Has A Thriving DJ, Writing, and TV Career Amongst Other Interests
Before her marriage to Daniel, Cara worked as a DJ for a radio station. She was doing well at her job, but she decided to focus on other things after marriage. Following her passion for writing and strong devotion to her Christian faith, she decided to write Christian books that can help other believers. She equally draws inspiration from her horse farm to write her books. Since she started writing in 2018, the author has had about three books to her name. Some of the books she has written include:
- Unbridled Faith: 100 Devotions from the Horse Farm (2018)
- Unbridled Faith: Devotions for Young Readers (2020)
- Fields of Grace: Sharing Faith from the Horse Farm (2021)
Aside from her books, she has also published articles on Christian sites like Faithgateway. She particularly loves using horses as her thumbnail photos for the articles she publishes.
Aside from writing books and publishing Christian articles, the author has also appeared on the screen a couple of times. Outside of the fact that she is often present with her husband on red carpets, Cara has featured on ‘Biography’, a TV documentary series. She also appeared on ‘Celebrity Family Feud’, a popular game show on ABC. Also, the radio DJ was with her husband on Fox and Friends where she promoted her book.
Cara Whitney’s Marriage To Daniel Whitney Has Thrived For 16 Years
Cara and Daniel have been married for over sixteen years now, and they are still deeply in love like newlyweds even at ages 46 and 58 respectively. They have always had a number of things in common, and this has nurtured their affection for each other from their first meeting and has continued to keep them closely bound together.
The couple met in 2004 while Cara was working as a DJ in Los Angeles, California. At the time, Larry the Cable Guy had kicked off his career and was beginning to gain fame in the industry. The pair said they fell in love after their first conversation. They discovered that they have a lot in common, including their love for cattle and strange love for the smell of cattle trucks. They then went on to date for about a year before tying the knot in an unconventionally simple ceremony.
Their wedding took place on the 3rd of July 2005, in an open field in Nebraska. Unlike the common extravagant wedding ceremony of most celebrities, the couple had a simple wedding for which they were casually dressed. They spent only about $180 to make their “happily ever after” a reality.
The couple has lived happily since their wedding. Since they love animals a lot, they have their own animal farm where they train horses and donkeys and they seem to be very happy with what they do. Larry posts pictures of their horses and donkeys from time to time on his Instagram page. Clara on the other hand has chosen to keep her distance from the media but she equally loves the farm.

Larry The Cable Guy and His Wife Are Philanthropists
As a committed Christian couple, Cara Whitney and her husband Larry have chosen the path of spreading the gospel in words and in deeds. One of the ways that the couple tries to reach out to people in need of help is through their non-profit organization, ‘The Git-R-Done Foundation’. The name of the foundation was derived from Larry’s catchphrase and it was established in 2009. Its purpose is to help veterans and children who need any form of assistance.
In another instance, when their son Wyatt was born, he had hip dysplasia. And after many consultations, he was cured at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children by the doctors there. For this reason, in 2010, the couple donated $5 million to the hospital for the establishment of the International Hip Dysplasia Institute. Larry is the grand patron of the institute while Wyatt, their son, has a wing named after him.
