Larry & Sue Wright

Host: Dr. James Dobson

August 30, 2022

To any outside observer, Larry Wright was a success. The Phoenix rock ‘n roll disc jockey had paid for an upscale home, nice cars, and provided a comfortable life for his wife, Sue, and their three kids. But on today’s edition of Family Talk, you’ll hear how Larry and Sue’s marriage almost ended in divorce. After Sue became a Christian, she exemplified 1 Peter 3:1, which challenges wives to win their husbands to Christ by their selfless conduct. Larry’s hardened heart was miraculously softened to God’s redemption, and the once-harsh disciplinarian was transformed into a loving father whose relationship with his children was restored.

Larry & Sue Wright

Larry Wright was a popular radio “disc jockey” in the 1960s, serving Phoenix and a wide area of Arizona under the name “Lucky Lawrence.” After receiving Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, Larry began leading Bible studies at Bethany Bible Church. In June of 1979, Larry and his wife, Sue, founded the ministry Abundant Life, which focused on unchurched businessmen. The ministry evolved to help couples work to improve their marriages. Larry and his wife expanded their outreach by speaking on the topic of God's plan for marriage across the country. In addition, they worked with Pro Athletes Outreach, helping athletes work to keep their families together. Larry passed away in 2001.

Sue Wright served alongside her husband and led Bible Studies and encouraged women in their faith for over 35 years. She was also a talented artist and loved to draw and paint with oils. In addition, Sue had a passion for horses and competed in many rodeos as a barrel racer. She was a rodeo princess and participated in many parades with her horses. Sue and Larry were married 46 years before his passing in 2001. She joined her husband in Heaven when she went home to be with the Lord in 2019. They are survived by their three daughters, nine grandchildren, and 25 great-grandchildren.
