Hi I'm Camille.

I'm a college student. I'm a daughter of God. I'm a lover of life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student, studying to become a dental hygienist. I love to run and play lacrosse. Music is a big part of who I am. I sing and play the piano. I always have and I always will. I love my family. I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters, and have 3 nephews and a niece. My life would be so boring without my family. They are my support and my best friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because the gospel of Jesus Christ is true, and as I align my life with the teaching of Christ I am happy and successful in life. Happiness is what we all seek for, and I've found happiness in Christ. I was raised in the church. I always believed the Book of Mormon to be true. I always believed that Joseph Smith restored the gospel to the earth. In high school things changed. Temptations were scarier and more prevalent. More people were opposing and questioning my beliefs and standards. Believing wasn't enough anymore. I needed to know. I read the Book of Mormon cover to cover for the first time by myself as a freshman in high school. I prayed fervently to know if it was true, or if I'd been lied to all my life. When I finished, I got on my knees, and, in tears, pleaded with the Lord to make the truthfulness of the book known to me. As I prayed, an overwhelming feeling of comfort and love came over me. It was as if I was being embraced. I felt safe. And I felt sure. I knew. I cannot deny that feeling and the testimony that I developed that day. I don't want to lose that feeling. Ever. That is why I live the gospel of Jesus Christ. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving those around me. I serve as a member of the fellowship committee in my ward. It is my responsibility and pleasure to meet anyone who moves into our ward. I get to extend to them the love and friendship that I know the Savior would extend if He were here. I try to see each person I meet as the Lord would see them. I try to love them as He would love them. Love is the very center of the gospel, and of this life.
