Bestselling Author, Television Personality, Philanthropist &
Wife of TV Host Dr. Phil

Robin McGraw, philanthropist, television personality, and two-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, is committed to her mission to inspire women to live their best lives. With the launch of her charitable foundation, When Georgia Smiled: The Robin McGraw Revelation Foundation, Robin has set out to enact real change by creating and advancing programs that help women and children — especially those affected by domestic violence — live healthy, safe, and joy-filled lives.

Philanthropist

Robin has worked for many years with a variety of philanthropic causes that serve to improve the lives of women and children. She is a board member of The Dr. Phil Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization committed to initiating and supporting organizations and programs that address the emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual needs of children and families. Robin also currently serves as a national spokesperson for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children), a network of nearly 1,000 programs that recruit, train, and support volunteers to represent the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courtroom and other settings. In 2010, in recognition of her work with CASA, Robin was initiated as a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity, which has donated more than $1 million to CASA over the last 20 years. Robin is also member of the American Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet. In 2007, she was recognized with the Heart of Gold Award by the Starlight Starbright Foundation for her longtime dedication to child welfare and devotion to her family, and the same year, she and her husband, Dr. Phil McGraw, were recognized with the Big Heart Award by the Westside Children's Center for their outstanding work with at-risk children and their families.

Dr. Phil Show

A daily presence on the Dr. Phil show since its inception in 2002 in the role of women’s advocate, viewers worldwide have embraced Robin's contributions to the show, whether it be discussing her experiences as a wife, mother, and grandmother, or dealing with issues that women face in the many phases of their lives. She has also been a frequent guest on The Doctors, created and Executive-Produced by her son, Jay McGraw. Robin has been featured multiple times on The Oprah Winfrey Show. She hosted White House Christmas 2006 on HGTV. In addition, Robin 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. Robin has also been a featured guest on such shows as Larry King Live, The View, Rachael Ray, TODAY, The Early Show, Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, Access Hollywood, Inside Edition, The Academy of Country Music Awards, Late Show with David Letterman, and The Hour of Power with Dr. Robert S. Schuller.

Keynote Speaker

Robin is a highly sought-after public speaker, whose notable appearances include being a featured speaker at Oprah Winfrey’s O You! event in 2012, discussing hormones and other women’s health issues, and a year-long tour as headliner for the Women of Faith presentations.

Books

Robin has also written two #1 New York Times bestselling books. In September 2006, Nelson Books, a division of Thomas Nelson Publishers, released her 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 advises women on recognizing and developing their unique role for greater satisfaction with themselves, their professions, their family life and anything they strive for. Robin followed her debut with the release of From My Heart to Yours, in which she offers simple but powerful words of inspiration and encouragement to women from all walks of life. In January of 2009, Robin released another #1 New York Times best-seller, What's Age Got to Do With It?, which shares all her secrets to success — along with some mishaps — in the areas of fitness, nutrition, skincare, menopause, hair, makeup, and fashion. Robin's most recent book, Christmas In My Heart and Home, conveys her favorite aspects of the holiday season.

Robin and Dr. Phil, whom she fondly refers to as “Phillip,” have been married for 38 years and have raised two sons, Jay and Jordan, now grown. Robin continues to make her family, which now includes daughter-in-law, Erica, and two grandchildren, Avery and London, a priority in her life.

 

What's Age Got to Do with It?: Living Your Happiest and Healthiest Life

What's Age Got to Do with It? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Though it's her husband, Dr. Phil, who has his own nationally-syndicated talk show, Robin McGraw's appearances on the show draw thousands of questions from viewers of all ages who want to know how she looks and feels so fabulous at the age of fifty-five. Robin shares her journey, including the ups and downs, and the secrets for staying healthy and in shape. Robin says, "To me, aging gracefully isn't accepting what aging does to you. It means taking care of your health, wanting to look your best, and knowing that it is not conceited, egotistical, or selfish to do so."

Inside My Heart: Choosing to Live with Passion and Purpose

I believe we were put on this earth to enjoy lives of joy and abundance, and that is what I want for you and for me. It's not my intention to give people advice on how to solve their problems (I leave that to my husband). But I've had my share of struggles over the years, and I know a thing or two about what has worked for me. I have chosen to be an active participant in my life rather than a spectator, and in so doing I have chosen how to be a woman, how to be a wife, and how to be a mother in ways that are uniquely my own. I offer the stories of these choices as evidence of the power of sheer determination, will, and faith in God. Robin speaks woman to woman, inspiring you to embrace and celebrate the many roles you play and encouraging you to make deliberate choices that lead to a richer, happier, and more meaningful life. She shares with you the life-changing moments of her childhood years, dating and marrying Dr. Phil McGraw, raising two sons, and asserting herself as a woman in a man's world to show you that you have the power to make choices in your life. In fact, she's convinced that you must choose to go after the life you want. With a deep and abiding faith in God, Robin McGraw shares her story so you too can make choices that reflect your own heart's truest priorities and highest goals.

From My Heart to Yours: Life Lessons on Faith, Family, and Friendship

Whether dealing with our faith, our family, or our friendships, we create the life we long for through the integrity of our choices. Robin McGraw shares from her heart, with simple but powerful doses of "life lessons" that will encourage and inspire women from all walks of life. "We are defined not by the station in life into which we are born, nor by our pedigree, but by the choices we make. And it is through the integrity of our choices that we create the life we long for." Robin's peer-to-peer advice will help women embrace their feminine selves, to accept nothing less than being their best (no matter what they do), and to proactively choose how they will live rather than take life as it comes along.
