Hi, my name is Donald N. Norris and I am a grateful believer in Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah). I thought it would be helpful to share a little bit about myself on this first ‘official’ blog post.
Although I was born in San Diego, I grew up in southern Michigan and was raised by my grandmother while my mom worked hard as a nurse anesthetist to support us. As far back as I can remember, my mom always took me to church. We were Episcopalians and I developed a deep sense of respect for the church. I loved the liturgy and always asked to stay in the big peoples service rather than going to Sunday School. My mom did send me to a vacation bible school at the local Baptist church one summer were I memorized John 3:16.
My mom and I moved to Petoskey, Michigan where I entered high school as a freshman. Once again, we attended the local Episcopal Church and I became an acolyte. I loved helping the parish priest and even thought of entering the priesthood myself. Well, the best laid plans don’t always work out.
