Hi I'm Debra Norton

I grew up in Mesa, AZ. I served a mission in Argentina. Married in the San Diego Temple. I have 3 daughters. I graduated from ASU.

About Me

I am a wife and mother of three daughters. I served as a missionary in the Argentina Resistencia mission. I graduated with honors from Arizona State University in Interdisciplinary Studies. I am a stay at home mom. My hustand and I have an online business making missionary plaques. I am a thrill seeker and have sky dived, white water rafted, zip lined, hiked Machu Pichu and traveled and lived in different areas in the world. I love to go to the beach and spend time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am so greatful for Joseph Smith that he was able to help restore the true Gospel to the Earth. I am greatful for a Savior who attoned for my sins that I may be made clean and whole if I repent of my transgressions. I know that the scriptures are true words of God and through his Prophets we may know of his will for us to do while here in this probationary state of mortality. I am greatful for the knowledge of His plan for me and it has helped me know what my purpose is in this life. I know that if I heed to the continous council of His church leaders, I will be blessed with happiness and the necessities of life. Without this Church, I would not be as happy and fulfilled in my earthly experience.

How I live my faith

I heed the counsel of the Prophet and Church leaders which helps me to find a greater peace and happiness in my life. I try to serve and help others when I can. I make my family a priority and help teach them to be good and choose the right. I try to read the scriptures becuase I know that by doing it, I will know of my Heavenly Father's teachings and it helps me to feel of his love for me as one of his daughters. I obey the Word of Wisdom by eating healthy food and do not use any habit forming substances. I attend church and partake of the Sacrament regularly and I pray daily.
