154: Rob Decker: Drugs, Alcohol and The Love Of God

Coming from a troubled home, Rob Decker found an outlet for his frustration in fitness training, excessive partying, drugs and alcohol.

When his ex-girlfriend claimed false charges against Rob, he had had enough. With the intent to end his life, Rob jumped out of a third story window, breaking his back in several places.

In his conversation with us, Rob shares his story, how he found peace in the midst of it all – the police threatening to put him in jail, his hospital bills amounting to well over $800,000, and the doctors telling him that he’d never walk again.

Today, Rob not only walks, he’s healthy, strong, and is a Personal Fitness Trainer at Equinox, a luxury fitness club in Palos Verdes, California. He is also happily married and has a 10-month old son, Caleb, whom he adores.

True transformation begins within, and for Rob, that journey began when he had a heart-to-heart talk with God. Rob describes the incredible peace that overcame him in that moment and how the redeeming promises of God were fulfilled in the weeks and months afterward.

A story of inspiration, hope, and healing, Rob now shares his experience with others so they too can discover the transformative power of God’s love in their lives.
