Be inspired by the incredible life story of Jim Daly, President and CEO of Focus on the Family. See how God took a young man from a shattered family and transformed him into the leader of one of today's most recognized and effective family ministries.
Jim Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, managed to rise above his harrowing childhood, which included living in Compton, a suburb of Los Angeles. In this deeply personal memoir, he relives horrors no child should endure. A bloodcurdling neighborhood murder merely serves as the backdrop to the abuse and alcoholism within the four walls of his own home, a cycle broken only by the cancer that left him motherless. Orphaned at an early age, Jim saw firsthand the worst this world had to offer. He somehow managed to catch enough glimpses of grace that he knew he wanted more, both from himself and from a God he had to believe existed. And from that small spark of grace, a great man emerged.
After pursuing careers in sales and corporate management, Jim Daly became a member of the Focus on the Family team in 1989. Since then he has risen through the organization, becoming president and CEO in 2005. He lives in Colorado Springs with his wife, Jean, and their two sons.
