Hi I'm Jordan Norrell

I was born at a early age in ol' Texas. I'm big into theater, soccer, and making people around me laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, first off I live by the quote, "Don't cry because it is over, Smile because it happened." -Dr. Seuss. My name is Jordan Norrell, but I mostly simply go by Elder Norrell these days. I am now currently serving the beginning of my two year mission for the Lord Jesus Christ. I will be serving in Madrid, Spain! I already love the people I haven't even met yet. I love and miss my family from time to time, but it is of the upmost importance I never forget that I am alone. Heavenly Father is always watching over me, and I can feel his love when I see the apparent blessings he puts into my life. I love this Gospel. Why? Because it is a Gospel of Happiness. If you follow the Lord Jesus Christ with a sincere heart and strive to be the best you can be, and accepting the Atonement (Jesus's ultimate Sacrifice), you will be blessed. Perhaps soon, perhaps later, or maybe not even until the life after we die, but the blessings will come Regardless. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the best thing that could have ever happened to me. It makes me a better family member, missionary, and person everyday. I know that Jesus is the Christ, I know that there truly is a living prophet (just like in times of old) that has been called of God in this day. I know that Miracles do occur. My Father and extending family are not members of this Church, but I want lose faith. Because my Heavenly Father doesn't lose faith in me. I love everyone, I promise

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I can see the absolute honest happiness the gospel of Jesus Christ brings into my life and into the lives of those around me. Over the past 17 1/2 I have just really come to know that if you follow the simple commandments from God, you will find success, joy, and peace within your busy day to day life. I come from parents who have different religious faiths, and I have had the opportunity both sides of the coin. Of course I have serious questions every now and then, but there is nothing that can't be answered from kneeling down somewhere quiet and praying with pure intent to my Father in Heaven. I love being a good kid. And oddly enough, I hate being a bad kid. I'm nowhere near perfect, but I try my best to emulate my Savior Jesus Christ. I may not know everything, but I know that being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the best that could ever happen to me.

How I live my faith

I serve as a Missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I read my scriptures (the Bible and Book of Mormon) daily, and I pray often. I live my faith with an open, and real relationship with my Heavenly Father. I conduct myself in a manner that always hopefully leaves a positive (and sometimes humorous) experience. I strive to keep myself to worthy to keep the Spirit of God in my life. I try to endure to the end, by righteously enjoying to the end :)
