Robin McGraw, wife of best-selling author and television talk show host Dr. Phil McGraw, has made "family first" her mission. Married for 31 years to Dr. Phil, whom she fondly refers to as "Phillip," Robin has made her marriage and raising their two sons Jay, 28, and Jordan, 21, her priority in life.
A constant presence on the Dr. Phil show since the very first episode, viewers worldwide have embraced Robin's contributions to the show – whether it be discussing her experiences as a mother, wife or dealing with issues that women face in the many phases of their lives. Some of the most popular shows with viewers include "Valentine's Day Giveaway," "Aging Gracefully" and the ever popular "Ask Dr. Phil and Robin." This past holiday season, Robin hosted White House Christmas 2006 on HGTV and has co-hosted many television events with Dr. Phil including Christmas in Washington, the JC Penney Jam Concert for America’s Kids and the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular. The couple has also been featured on such shows including Larry King Live, The View, The Academy of Country Music Awards, The Early Show, Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, Late Show with David Letterman, and The Hour of Power with Dr. Robert S. Schuller.
Robin has also been one of the most sought after new authors within the publishing world. In September 2006 Nelson Books, a division of Thomas Nelson Publishers, released Robin's debut book entitled Inside My Heart: Choosing to Live With Passion and Purpose. In Inside My Heart, Robin shares the philosophies and life choices that have proven to align her with God's will. Robin also helps women see how to recognize and develop their unique role for greater satisfaction with themselves, their profession, their family life, and anything they strive for and to simply be the best they can be.
Additionally, Robin was a featured speaker at several Women of Faith events across the country in 2006. She is also a board member of the Dr. Phil Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization committed to supporting programs that address the emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual needs of children and families.
