You want a text cell. To apply the style text to a cell, select the cell 
and go to Menu Format -> Style -> Text (or Alt + 7 on Windows).

The following documents should help:

"Word Processing in Notebooks" at 
http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/GettingStarted/WorkingWithNotebooks/WordProcessingInNotebooks.html

and

"Notebooks as Documents" at 
http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/book/section-1.3.5
