(By: Robert Walsh)

I was the fourth sibling in a line of seven children, born into a traditional Catholic family in Northern New Jersey. In high school during my later teen years my girlfriends' father (future father-in-law) shared the Good News. He explained the redemptive story of Christ in a way I had never heard before. After a considerable period of soul searching and checking out his facts, I came to the realization that I was eternally lost and Christ was the only way to eternal life. I repented of my sins and invited Jesus into my life.

During those early years, I had much passion and zeal for sharing how Jesus was transforming my life. I was bold and unashamed of the Gospel. However, as I graduated from college, began building my professional life, getting married and raising a family, something happened. It was a slow process, but I gradually moved away from the Lord and my life was filled with other activities. I ran for public office and was elected to my local school board and later to the local governing body of the town where we lived. My life seemed to be consumed with everything, except living for the Lord. I left my first love.

By the time summer arrived in 2007, I was living life to the fullest. I had achieved great professional success, having risen to the position of Superintendent of Schools at age 40. It seemed as though my life was running like a well oiled machine. But underneath that seemingly perfect veneer, sin was eating away the very foundations of the life I had built. On September 11, 2007, I was suspended by the officers of the board of education for whom I was employed under the allegations of financial impropriety.  

It was the day that God dropped an anvil on my head. It was the day that Galatians 6:7 became very real for me. That day almost four years ago (as of 2011) represented a demarcation point in my life. The fallout of that day brought tremendous personal pain upon me and my family. As the allegations were proven true, many people were deeply affected by my actions. I lost my career. I spent a year in federal prison. I have suffered dearly for my sin.

But, it was this experience that God used to bring me back to Him. It has been a wild ride, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. My life has been truly transformed. I want to live for Him. As a complement to this testimony, I have developed a personal website you may find informative as I share my struggles and how God has been working in my life. The link is as follows: Driving Forward With Confidence In Building a Lasting Legacy...

I give God all the glory for what He has done in my life and I look ahead with great anticipation as I live my life for Him!

Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. You can even have that assurance RIGHT NOW! Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake. 

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.


JESUS DID IT! and...


Remember: All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify God. The money and assets we accumulate, the fame and power we've attained or seek to attain - all of the things of this nature will one day pass away, but those lives of others we impact for Jesus Christ will last for eternity, and we will be rewarded for the part we helped play by impacting those lives ... for eternity. (Matthew 6:19-21 is our assurance)
