James Dobson’s experience at the public school system from 1960-1963

At the final year, he had to say goodbye to 25 to 30 teary-eyed kids.

One young lady whom he said goodbye to in 1963 called him in 1975. Julie had grown up. James remembered her as a seventh grader with a crisis of confidence in herself. Her Latin heritage embarrassed her and she was overweight. She had only one friend who had moved away the following year. She and Dr. Dobson talked on the phone about the good ole days.

“Where do you go to church?”

He told her, and she asked if she could visit. He told her she could, and the next week she came. In the coming months, she became a vibrant Christian.

A few months after her initial visit, Dobson asked her, “Julie, I want to ask you a question. Will you tell me why you went to so much trouble to obtain my unlisted number and call me last fall…?”

“Because when I was a seventh-grade student in junior high school, you were the only person in my life who acted like you respected and believed in me…and I wanted to know your God.”
