My life has been filled with love yet not without trials, tests, temptations and persecution. Through it all, God-Jehovah has never left me nor forsaken me, even when I have forsaken Him. He has been a constant in my life and has miraculously saved my family and all those with whom I have been in contact. I sincerely pray that this biography of my life with Jesus Christ will encourage the reader to follow the Call in his or her life. There is nothing special about me. My only virtue is Gods love, which has brought me to obedience, increased faith, trust, love and forgiveness. I am Gods Go-Go Girl Wherever He sends me I go! Whatever He says Do I do! My love for Him is overwhelming, my worship of Him is everlasting, my praise of Him is insufficient, since I have not the tongues of angels. May He hear my praise from the crevices of my heart and continue to bless my efforts as I labour in the vineyard of life, for souls for His kingdom. Jesus, keep me near the cross; Where the precious fountain, Free to all, a cleansing stream, Flows from Calvarys mountain. In the cross, in the cross, Be my glory ever.

Further, the writings encourage readers to prayerfully, thoughtfully, and truthfully examine their own mile markers. A chapter is included to assist this discovery process.

The defining trait of the story that began with Robert Fulton is not just the creation of a good company in 1969 that has since become highly successful. What sets this story apart is his lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ and how honoring God was central to all his decisions. From the start, it called for a different kind of company culture—rooted in his faith-based principles that looked to the inherent value of each person and developing their God-given potential. That has become a hallmark of Web Industries in the fifty years of its existence. Robert Fulton shaped his company’s culture believing that relationships are the very essence of life. He implemented an employee stock ownership plan because he believed the people who worked alongside him to build the company’s value should share in that value. These employee-owners are at the heart of why this company has won a place of great influence and respect in the corporate world.
