"To be one of the two invited speakers to pay tribute to Dr. Dobson was an honor of extraordinary proportions because he has been helping families grow, proliferate, and even stay together when they would otherwise have split," said Congressman Gohmert.

"My friend, Dr. James Dobson, loves God, loves Shirley, loves his own children; loves everyone else's children; and loves all families. In fact, he has always known that they were a gift of God."

Below are excerpts of the remarks delivered by Congressman Gohmert during the Patriots Gala at the Omni Shoreham in front of the large ballroom packed with conference attendees at the featured dinner:

"Back in 1983, my wife, Kathy, and I had our first child, a daughter, but she was born in a hospital that must have had budget problems because they never gave us a manual telling us everything to do every day to take care of our new child. We weren't sure how to raise a child in the ways of God's love, but we had heard of Focus on the Family and Dr. James Dobson. Thank God for his books and videos and their timely help, without even knowing us then.

"Dr. Dobson has not only nurtured and helped Kathy and me raise our children, he has done so for millions and millions of other families. He has made an absolutely marvelous difference for the good of families in America and around the world. Through the moral crisis that faces this nation, Dr. James Dobson has been a true asset, steadfast in pursuit of God's wisdom and blessing on us all. It has been such a great honor to be to come to know him as a very dear friend. What an honor to get to publicly extol this man's virtues."

In 1977, Dr. Dobson founded Focus on the Family, which he personally led as a beacon of light, hope and understanding until 2003. He also founded Family Talk in 2010 as a non-profit organization, again using Biblical principles as he encouraged, taught, and ministered to a nation that needed the Lord's hope and encouragement which was played on over 300 stations nationwide. Believing also there was a need for a non-profit organization centered in Washington, DC that could respond to the ongoing war against anything Biblically-based.
