Hi I'm Norm Reece

I'm someone who enjoys most anything that is fun. I enjoy outdoor sports and music of different types. I believe in Jesus Christ.

About Me

I have grown up in Idaho and am currently a college student. I was recently married and sealed for eternity to my beautiful wife. I enjoy many things such as sports, musical instruments, books, and a lot of good laughs. I like to think deeply about my relationship with God and His awareness of me.

Why I am a Mormon

I belong to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was raised in this faith, but didn't find out if it was true and what God wanted for me until I was an early teenager. The Bible talks about how after Christ left He would send the comforter to teach us of truth and to guide us. I was reading the Book of Mormon one night and read a passage that testified of God being the creator of everything, including us as His children, and the Holy Ghost bore a strong witness that God is my Father in heaven. He knows me and loves me. The Spirit was strong when I read it. The Spirit also bore witness that what I was reading was divine truth. The Book of Mormon is another account of the Teachings of Jesus Christ. Our Savior. The Bible along with the Book of Mormon have helped me understand in pure simple truth, that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father want us to walk the path that leads to Their presence. Since this first experience I have witnessed and felt many other times His guidance in this church as well as my personal life. That is why I am a member of this church. Because I know the Savior is leading and directing it through a prophet. Everyone should seek to establish and strengthen their own relationship with Heavenly Father. He will guide us back to him from wherever we are in our lives. He will answer our prayers through the Holy Spirit when we pray with sincerity of heart. Through the Spirit, I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer and that He has restored His church and His truth for all of us to take advantage of and for us to prepare for Him to come again.

How I live my faith

I recently returned from serving a two year mission in Minnesota. What a way to share my faith In Jesus Christ. I now attend my ward in my home town and look to invite friends to join me to see if they have the desire to be a part of Christ's church. I love His gospel so much and I try to find opportunities to share it with those who have not heard it. It is hard sometimes but I know that it is what Christ wants for everyone and will bring them closer then they have ever been to Him.
