Elizabeth Norton Bio


Elizabeth Norton is a wife, mother to 3, and foster mother to some.  She is an author and is on a never ending journey in her personal education.  Elizabeth has a strong commitment to leaving this world a better place than how she found it. Married in 2002, Elizabeth resides in New Jersey.

Elizabeth has held many titles in her life but being a mother is her proudest claim to fame is being a birth mother of three. Being a Mom makes her recognize both her biggest responsibility and greatest accomplishment. After the birth of her first child she realized her love for little people.  With the blessing of her husband, she signed up to be a resource parent for the state of NJ.  Together, they fostered 23 children. Elizabeth’s life was changed because of each and everyone of them.  Her days of being a temporary mother are long gone.  The children have left her home but never her heart. This has made her appreciate the 3 biological children God gave her even more.  Being a mother is the hardest job she has ever loved to have.  During her early mothering days Elizabeth helped cope with the highs and lows, the hellos and goodbyes, and record the memories on a blog.

Later in life, Elizabeth became a brain cyst/tumor surviver and was chronically ill for years in her late 20s and early 30s many times being bed ridden for days.  During that time writing on her blog was a way to heal but it eventually turned into a successful business as she created the Elizabeth Norton brand. Elizabeth shares her story online and out loud to the world to let others know that they are not alone on this very hard journey called life. She has worked with brands such as Disney, Caesars Entertainment, Hershey, Walmart, Johnson and Johnson, Clorox, and more. With her illness behind her, Elizabeth is excited to be in the game of life.

In 2009, Elizabeth saw a child trafficking ring running through a local public school.  Though she experienced, along with her family, intense persecution as she exposed the ring on her blog, she continues to fight for the 50+ kids she saw being sold over the course of 11 years. She will never stop fighting for the child she held and the other nameless children that crossed her path.

In 2014, Elizabeth was nominated as a social good online Influencer in the Keep Good Going Category of the Shorty Impact Awards, an international awards program created to raise global awareness around the positive impact through social media that brands, agencies and nonprofits can have on society.  She was also awarded a Community Champion Award from national nonprofit Champions for Kids in 2013.

Elizabeth Norton Gray has sat on boards and volunteered throughout her life for a variety of causes and efforts. Elizabeth is deeply passionate about empowering women to take care of themselves and to not be lost in the labels that this world puts on them. If you ask Elizabeth, she will tell you she is a connector of humans.  She has authentically connected with an online audience with a “love despite your differences” attitude.

Elizabeth wants all of those around her to “live completely!” She lives her own life deeply immersed in every second of every day and encourages ALL to do the same.

She credits her spirituality in getting through life’s most difficult moments.  She is a member of The United Methodist Church.  Her favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 31:8-9. “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.Speak up and judge fairly;defend the rights of the poor and needy.” She is committed to doing just that.
