Hi I'm Norma Scott

I am a Grandmother of 6 children, Great Grandmother to 8 Children and Great Great Grandmother to one. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Indiana and graduated from Nursing School and worked for six years in Indiana as a private nurse to two surgeons working with them in the Operating Room and office. I found another job through an RN magazine that would pay me twice as much as I was making but the job was in Arizona. I gave my notice and packed everything I owned in my Oldsmobile and drove to Arizona alone when I was 26 years old. I didn't know a soul here. I met my future husband here and only returned to Indiana for visits.

Why I am a Mormon

I visited Temple Square once on a site seeing trip across the United States and heard the Missionaries talk about the Church. They were talking about baptisms for the dead and I thought they were really weird. When I moved to Arizona I realized I was surrounded by a lot people who were Mormon. I was quite curious but really wasn't interested in hearing anymore about the religion. My husband was not Mormon but he had grown up with them and went to Mutual with his friends. My husband was a police officer for the highway patrol and while we were stationed in Page, Arizona the missionaries came to our door. I told them I wasn't interested because I was going to the Methodist Church. My husband happened to be home and he said If I was going to live in Arizona I needed to know about the Mormons. I was very much in love and loved my husband so much when they told me that I could be married to my husband for time and all eternity and that families could be together forever that was very comforting for me to hear. I don't think I had a testimony of my own but believed the strong testimonies of the missionaries. I now I have a very strong testimony of my own through reading the scriptures, prayer,, attending church regularly and service.

How I live my faith

I attend church regularly, do my visiting teaching monthly, accept my church callings. I have been 2nd counselor in primary, secretary in young womans, and the secretary in relief society. My husband and I served a mission at the Family History Center in Mesa and we were both called as Family History consultants in our Ward. I attend the Temple regularly. I am working on family history for my husband and my family and my life story. My goal is to publish the family history and life story as a book before I die.
