Hi I'm Norma Wright

I joined the church in 1962, in England, I now belong to the Merimbula Branch of the Church in Australia. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I emigrated to Australia in 1967, I was a registered nurse. We have lived in the Kiama area until 1982, have been living in the Merimbula area for 30 years. I have 5 children, and 15 grandchildren. I enjoy singing and doing my Family History, and a bit of gardening.. and some painting.

Why I am a Mormon

I had always been a religious person from birth, attending church regularly in my local village in England. As a teenager I started to ask questions that could not be answered. Then one day a young part time missionary asked me the three golden questions: "Where did you come from?", "Why are you here?" and "Where are you going after this life?". He made an appointment for me to meet with the full-time missionaries the next day, where I had the first discussion about Joseph Smith's First Vision. Before I even left the room, I knew the church was true, the feeling was overwhelming. I took discussions for 9 days, and I was baptised on the 9th day. My testimony has grown over the years, I know the Saviour is at the head of this church, that all the authority that existed in the church as in ancient times, has been restored to

How I live my faith

I love to go to church on Sundays, where I conduct the singing, and organise the hymns each Sunday. I am the Director of the Family History Center, and a nursery teacher. I also am involved in the Public Relations, I also enjoy singing with a local interfaith group in my village.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Norma Wright
The way that we could come to know our Father in Heaven through daily prayer and scripture study, and by living the commandments of God and listening to the whispering of the Spirit. These are some of the effective spiritual tools which can create an Spiritual environment where we could be inspired of the things that our Father in Heaven wants us to do in this life. If we could do these things daily, we could draw closer to our Father in Heaven. Show more Show less
