Hi I'm Camilla

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the mother of 4 wonderful children: 3 active little boys ages 5, 4 and 2, and a baby girl (9 mo.). I am a stay at home mother. I am also a registered nurse. My husband and I have been married for 6 years, and he is a podiatrist in residency.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints influences every aspect of my life. It inspires me to be a better wife and mother, it encourages me to be a little better every day, it gives me hope and peace during difficult times, it provides the opportunities for service and growth that teach me to love and care for those around me, it reminds me of what is most important in life. The teachings of the church are a way of life for me and my family. It brings us a life filled with joy and peace and satisfaction. I feel so blessed to be a member of the church. I am thankful that it is led by a living prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, who speaks with God just as biblical prophets did in ancient times. I am thankful for the standards set forth by God through his prophet, which standards don't change even though the trends and morals and values of the world at large fluctuate. I have read the Book of Mormon multiple times and know that it is of God.

How I live my faith

In my local ward, I have had many opportunities to serve in the church. I worked with the young women for 3+ years. Then played the piano for the women's meetings and for our ward choir. I served as a counselor in the primary presidency for a year, and was recently released. I also actively visit members of the ward, as part of the church's program to see that every member is cared for. I support my husband in his work with the young men and scouting programs now. Each of our assignments and service have been a great blessing to us and to our family and has provided us with memorable and life-changing experiences. All positions in the church are voluntary and are not compensated monetarily.
