Hi I'm Norma

I grew up in the church. I am grateful for my pioneer heritage and their testimonies. I am thankful for the gospel in my life.

About Me

I am the mother of five and grandmother of 10. My husband and I have been married for almost 46 years. We served a six month mission at a girl's camp in Utah and now we are excited to begin serving in the Chile Rancagua mission in a few months. My hobbies include quilting, bicycling, and traveling.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon by virtue of my birth. My family have been members back to my great-great-grandparents on both sides of my family. I stay close to the gospel and it's teachings because I know it is what my Heavenly Father would want me to do. There are so many distractions in the world and so many people trying to change the way the world thinks. When I see how hard Satan is working to get people to follow his ways, I realize that I need to work even harder to obey the commandments and stay close to my Father in Heaven. I am so grateful for my testimony of the Book of Mormon and for my elder brother Jesus Christ. I know that I am on the right path and pray every day that I can continue to remain faithful to the things i know to be true.

How I live my faith

The LDS church is a church of service. I have always enjoyed participating in church and community centered serve. For many years I belonged to a women's service club, so I participated in projects on a local, state and international level. I have been involved in the women's organization of the church in leadership and teaching responsibilities. I have also enjoyed working with the youth of the church. One wonderful oportunity I enjoyed was participating in the cultural celebration surrounding the dedication of the Brigham City, Utah temple. I believe that the youth are the future of the world and as such we need to guide them and teach them to be honest, responsible adults. I know that the principles and doctrines of the LDS faith provide the tools necessary to raise the kind of adults the world is going to need in the future.
