Danae Dobson and her mother, Shirley Dobson, recently completed a hospitality project for women entitled Welcome To Our Table. This inspirational book was released in fall 2012, and features cherished recipes, inspirational stories, and photos of family gatherings. Danae is also active in her speaking ministry, addressing women at church-related events such as banquets, teas, and conferences.
Danae was born in Southern California and wrote her first children's manuscript at the age of 12. The book was entitled Woof! A Bedtime Story About A Dog. Upon publication, she became the youngest author in the 25-year history of Word, Inc. (Dallas). It's a title that she still holds today.
In 1990 she received her bachelor's degree in communication from Azusa Pacific University. She has authored 24 books to date, including the popular Woof series that was spun off of her original story. These best-selling books have sold over 400,000 copies and have also been released in the United Kingdom and Indonesia. Other works include Parables For Kids (co-authored with Dr. James Dobson), the Forest Friends series and the Sunny Street Kids’ Club series. Danae has also authored two inspirational books for adolescent girls entitled Let's Talk!, and Let's Walk the Talk. She has appeared on the 700 Club, Daystar, and Time For Hope, and has been a guest on more than one hundred radio broadcasts including Minirth Meier and Focus on the Family. She has also been a featured speaker at the Christian Booksellers Association, Hawaiian Islands Ministries, MOPS, and numerous Christian schools.
Danae is the daughter of Dr. James and Shirley Dobson of the Family Talk broadcast, and has a younger brother, Ryan, who is also an author and speaker, and co-host of Family Talk. Danae continues to reside in Southern California.
"I was extremely pleased with her tender heart and her deliverance of a touching message. My audience of 300 women enjoyed her presentation, too. It was an outreach event and five women gave their hearts to the Lord when she ended her message. She presented the plan of salvation eloquently."
"We had the privilege of hosting Danae Dobson as our women's conference speaker at our church. She did an outstanding job and was well received by the women in our community. Danae is a devoted follower of Jesus Christ and has a heart for people to know the Lord. She is able to communicate to women of all ages in a winsome way."
"Her affable style, witty comments, articulate delivery and clear Christian content endeared her to those attending a South Florida Mother’s Day brunch at which she was the key note speaker...She is as authentic in person as she is on the podium."
