Hi I'm Nora Rose

I'm a theatre major. Actor, author, singer, nerd and totally crazy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a year left of my undergrad, majoring in theatre. I love to act and direct. I also love writing (original fiction and non-original) and singing. I would either love to professionally act and direct or be a teacher. Or both. Whatever I do, I want to publish my novels. Mostly, though, I want to be a mother. I'm also a colossal nerd: I love comic books, tv shows, movies, novels, so on. Give me a good fictional world and I'm all over it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be raised as a Mormon. My parents are strong, faithful members of the church that I have always looked up to. Through my teenage years, I sought to find my own testimony of the gospel. Through many experiences and over time, I was able to build that testimony and continue building it today. I never realized that I had my own personal testimony, however, until a friend of mine told me he was going to convert me from Mormonism to Christianity. I was shocked that, though we had known each other for years, he had not recognized I was a Christian. I also realized that day that I could never leave this gospel. It is my home. It is where I belong, it is where I feel comfortable. It is where I can be myself without being judged, where everyone loves me despite our differences. Plus, everything in the gospel just makes sense. It is a gospel of logic and of truth. How can I argue with logic like Heavenly Father's?

How I live my faith

I live my faith by surrounding myself with those who hold my standards. I love to work with the young men and young women through summer camps, and, through callings, with those even younger as well. I love bearing my testimony to others and teaching others through my testimony.

What is being a Mormon like?

Nora Rose
Really, being a Mormon is like being any other human being. It's not like we're aliens or something! We have families, we go to school, we go to work, have careers, have trials, etc. The only difference is that we have the gospel in our lives. We know the truth. We know where we came from, what we're doing here, where we're going. And because of this, we are happier. We're more easily able to deal with trials we may have because we know why we have them. We are able to see the divinity in all things and how all things good testify of Christ. Which is a beautiful way to look at life. Show more Show less
