The son of author and broadcasting hall of famer, Dr. James Dobson, Ryan began his career by using his natural talent and passion for public speaking. He traveled extensively, speaking at music festivals, concert tours, and crisis pregnancy centers, which prepared him to write first book, Be Intolerant, in 2003. Be Intolerant clearly hit a nerve and quickly rose up the sales charts–only to be followed by four additional bestsellers.
Ryan co-hosts a radio program, Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk, with his father, discussing issues facing today’s families. Ryan has also joined forces with Dr. Dobson on staff at the Family Talk Ministry. He is an in-demand speaker, leads short-term missions trips and men’s retreats, and has a brand new book that is near completion for release.
Ryan lives in Colorado with his wife, Laura, and their two children.
