How I came into relationship with Jesus Christ My parents were major influences in presenting the gospel to me and I asked the Lord into my heart at an early age, but wasn’t sure of my salvation. In 1977 Billy Graham came to Notre Dame. One evening during the crusade I felt the tug to go forward, ask forgiveness of my sins, and submit to the lordship of Jesus Christ. May 14, 1977 is what I consider my spiritual birthday. I confessed Jesus as Lord and believed in my heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and I knew I was saved. I am a work in process. A life long process of God conforming me into the image of His Son as I submit to His rule in my life. The beautiful thing is that our Lord is so patient with me. I daily rely on the good news of His love, grace, mercy and forgiveness.
