I was raised in a wonderful Italian, Catholic family. I am so grateful to God for the family He blessed me with. We are a pretty typical crazy, loud & fun bunch! I am proud of my heritage and my family.
I met Jesus back in July of 1976 at a Young Life summer camp. What blesses my heart is the memory of the first thing the Lord did in me. I vividly remember suddenly having a heart filled with love. I noticed that I truly cared for those in school whom I previously thought were the “unlovable” types…I’m sure you know what I mean. Well, when I got to college, I got involved in Campus Crusade for Christ & my relationship with Jesus exploded. I began to grow by leaps & bounds.
I got married in my last semester of college. After graduation, I was in the ministry for about 4 years. The tragedy is that I was steeped in legalism and addiction which ultimately destroyed my life. You see, I didn’t know of God’s precious grace and the freedom that comes with it.
Around 1995, I discovered on the radio the ministry called People to People. God began to slowly change my life by changing my beliefs, but I didn’t realize then how truly bound I really was in my legalistic thinking & beliefs. I ultimately went through a divorce, but the Lord continued lovingly getting my attention especially through my bad choices.
God’s GRACE & the EXCHANGED LIFE are now the passion & message of my life!!! I love Jesus and enjoy intimacy with my Father and blessing His “body”.
The Lord recently (July 2, 2013) blessed me with Ann, my wonderful new wife. I have fulfilled a dream by marrying my best friend!!! I have have 2 adult sons whom I love very much. They are Anthony who is a business owner in Rochester, MN and Jonathan, a Chiropractor in Norway. I admire them both very, vey much. I enjoy doing ”stuff” with them whether it’s golfing, eating out, watching hockey, sitting around just talking, playing games, etc. They inspire me and bring me great joy!!!
Blessings my friend!
