Jim Daly is an author and broadcaster, president of Focus on the Family and host of its daily radio broadcast, which is heard by more than 6.6 million listeners a week and has been honored as Program of the Year by the National Religious Broadcasters.

Under his leadership, the ministry has reinvigorated its traditional focus on helping couples build strong marriages and raise healthy, resilient kids. In just the last 12 months, with the help of Focus on the Family, 610,000 couples have built stronger marriages and 697,000 moms and dads built stronger, healthier, and more God-honoring families.

Daly and his wife, Jean, have two sons and live in Colorado Springs, Colorado.



Jim knows what it feels like to be a waiting child. After his mother died and his stepfather walked out, he and his siblings were left alone. Watch the video below as he shares the heart behind Focus on the Family’s Wait No More program.
