About

RobWDP

Robert is a husband and a father. He is a convert to the Catholic faith with 7+ years of experience in both Catholic and Protestant ministry settings. As of Spring 2018, Robert has completed his graduate studies through Franciscan University of Steubenville, earning his Master of Arts in Catechetics & Evangelization. Robert is also on a journey; a path that has led his family to follow his lead as he stepped away from a leadership position in diocesan youth ministry to step out into the unknown. ‘Devout Life’ is more than a blog, it is an invitation. You are cordially invited to join Robert, to read and to grow along with him. His prayer is that you will find some consolation and inspiration as he chronicles his struggles and progress as he, a sinner, attempts sainthood.
