Hi I'm Michelle Norlie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My Name is Michelle. I am a wife, a mother of four and a birth-mother. I enjoy photography, and digital scrap booking. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a fifth generation Mormon. Some may think that means I was born with a testimony of the church. I wish I could say that were possible! Like many people, even people born into the church, I too have a conversion story. For me it came shortly after my 20th birthday. I had an opportunity to draw closer to my Heavenly Father than ever before in my life (up to that point) when I chose to give my unborn child a chance to have an eternal family of her own by placing her for adoption. That opportunity gave me a chance to experience the atonement of Jesus Christ and truly feel the importance of our Heavenly Father's plan for each of us in such an amazing way. I have such a strong testimony of the power of prayer, the power of the atonement, of Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father, fasting and paying an honest tithe. Having lost my own brother at a very young age I was able to gain a testimony of eternal families very early on. I believe that because of Jesus' sacrifice in the Garden of Gethemane, His everlasting love and forgiveness he has blessed me with an eternal family of my own.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day by trying to teach my children the basic gospel principles, reading scriptures with them, having daily prayer and setting the example of being kind, loving, forgiving, and helpful to others. At church I work in the library every Sunday. I love being in the library because it gives a chance to get to know all the people who attend. I love to see everyone's smiling faces and helping them find what ever materials they may be in need of. It's truly a joy to be able to serve the Lord's people in that capacity.
