Hi I'm Cambria W.

I am a student, a hard worker, a Pisces and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well if this About Me won't be the most awkward thing you have read in a while, then I don't know what is... I am 22 years old, I am a student, I am a tad off my rocker, oh and I love photography. I enjoy sitting outside when its raining, and I occassionally like to go on hikes. I can't spell for the life of me at times, but that's okay because what I lose in writting I make up in complete awesomeness. I am a bit sarcastic but alot of time I won't catch it. I love when I am surrounded by people who accept my underlying weirdness and are comfortable with getting out of their box. I like to push the envelope and see how people react. And at times, I enjoy just cuddling up with some friends and vegging out. Every day is a new adventure. I take care of my mother who is disabled, and have been doing so since I was 17 years old. Because of this I have grown to be very independent and reliable. Sometimes I come off a lot older than I am and then others I come off a lot younger, its a give and take but I would like to consider myself to be pretty balanced.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know the Church is true. I was born in the church but that doesn't mean that I have in any way been sheltered from the woes of the world. My family was never really active in the church but, from a really young age I had a strong desire to go to church. I have always in some way known that it is true, even when it least seem liked it was. I have been to many churches and heard many false things about the church, but when I read the scriptures, and I pray about its truthfulness I have no doubt that it is true. The priesthood was never present in my life growing up, but now I see it and it is has almost a tangible feeling when I am around it. It may seem insane but it's true. It's one of the most true things there are in the world. It's like knowing that oxygen is what we breathe, and its like knowing that the sun rises and falls each day. Its knowledge that faith gives you. I am not Mormon because I am told its true, I am not Mormon because I think I am better then anyone. I AM Mormon because I have investigated it for myself and found it to be true, and I am Mormon because I am not better then anyone but I can strive to be the best person I can be with people who are striving for the same thing.

How I live my faith

Hmm, How I live my faith? Well, I am an active member in a Young Single Adults ward. (which means that everyone there besides the Bishopric is between the ages of 18 and 31) I attend church on Sundays and strive to fufill my callings. I am the ward Historian so if you see my 90% of the time I have a camera in my hand and I am capturing all our activites. We have alot of activities. I tend to make it only to the ones on Mondays and on the weekends but considering there is one for every day of the week I am pretty okay with that. Along with taking photos, I love going out with the Sister Missionaries. They rely on the members to help them be able to meet more people so it is nice being able to go meet with investigators of the church. I also live my faith by the way I live. I do not work on Sundays. At first that was pretty hard to do. But thankfully there are employers out there that will respect my faith and won't make me work on Sunday. Also, I pay tithing. Tithing is 10% of my income. Which at 20 and having a part-time job that pays Minimum wage can seem like a huge sacrafice. But I know that good comes from it. I do all the typical answers of how I live my faith, go to church, read my scriptures, pray, and keep the commandments. Alot of times I will falter (Sadly I am not perfect.) But I repent when I mess up and I strive to be better.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Cambria W.
I love this question. No Mormons do not just help other Mormons. Infact the Church is the first to help in many situations. Like back when there were the Cedar Fires, my ward jumped into action creating hygiene kits and setting up a safe area for evacuated people to come to. From the time we are in Primary (Sunday School for 3-12 year olds) we have service projects in the community. Service and Charity are a huge part of the church. Show more Show less
