Hi I'm Camille

I'm a military wife, mother of three, and a life-long artist...I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to my best friend, and we have three beautiful children. My husband is an officer in the United States Marine Corps, and we are so happy to be serving our country. Family is most important to me, and I feel closest to the Lord when I am surrounded by them. I also am passionate about painting, photography, and graduated with my degree in Fine Art. I have been a Mormon my whole life, and I have only experienced the greatest of joys because of it.

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up in the Church of Jesus Christ and have never wandered far beyond it. With choosing to live by its standards, I feel truly enriched. Some might only think of a Mormon-life as one that is unbalanced or too strict. I've personally heard this from friends of other faiths, but I feel incredible peace with my choices. I never feel like I have ever missed out on anything and strive to encourage and teach our children that happiness comes from self-discipline. I have many imperfections, but I know that it is only because of Jesus Christ that I can be able to be in God's presence again. I seek out only those things that bring me joy in this life, and I have that with being a full-time Mormon.

How I live my faith

I've been active in different areas of service at church. One of my most strengthening experiences was my mission to Brazil when I was 21. I had always wanted to be a missionary and so when I prayed about whether or not the Lord wanted me to go, I received a quiet confirmation of that choice. I had strong feelings about my faith before leaving, and only felt that much more conviction that the church was true at the end of my 18 months of service. It seems that the most I've felt the spirit in my life has been in meaningful conversations with others about gospel principles or giving a lesson about the church's fundamental elements (i.e. Jesus Christ, the Book of Mormon, or Joseph Smith). It is amazing to me that I can be in my primary class full of six-year olds talking about something that I've been hearing since I was their age and still have that special warmth of the spirit confirming that it is still true.
