Hi I'm Cambria

Life's too short to be unhappy. I find great happiness by serving. I love life & dancing crazy at times. I'm mormon!

About Me

I grew up in the most beautiful state of Colorado. WOOP WOOP! Colorado! You'll probably find that most people from Colorado absolutely LOVE their home state. I'm a college student, but am currently taking a break from school to serve those in the state of New York. After I return from full-time missionary service I hope to be.... hmmmm.... I'm not fully sure at the moment, but I love people and have work experience in marketing, so I'll most likely continue that path upon returning home. I enjoy great music and anything that gets my body moving! "Can you feel the beat?" For me, there are a few things that I'd say bring a feeling of rejuvenation and that is Long runs, surrounding myself with good friends and family and, of course-- dark chocolate. I love summer food, and can't get enough of barbequed chicken with fruit salads containing strawberries and pineapple, and don't even think about leaving out the Cool Whip-- light. I hope that others would consider me a good friend, and I like to keep things "spicy". Gotta love variety! 

Why I am a Mormon

I couldn't imagine not being one. I love how the church provides great ways to serve and give back to those around you. I have come to feel that the doctrines that are taught in the church are real and true. IT's true!

How I live my faith

I am currently surrounding my whole life and existence around my faith as I strive to be an example to others, and find people to teach and testify to on a daily basis of the principles and doctrines of the church. I love being a missionary! It is the absolute best decision I have ever made in my life-- up to this point. I will be forever grateful to a loving heavenly father who answered my prayer and gently nudged me to serve HIM. What a beautiful and amazing experience missions are! But, before I accepted a call to serve a mission, I was involved in different responsibilities that helped me to serve in various capacities and increase in my personal growth and character. Some of which included helping other women in the church, volunteering at different places in the community, and teaching Sunday school. I know that if I don't live what I teach, that I would be considered a hypocrite. What a tragedy that would be. The gospel of Jesus Christ transforms individuals if they apply what the Savior taught into their daily lives and use it to bless the lives of those around them! I strive to be one that applies His teachings into my life-- I feel that self improvement is so important! With that said, we all must learn and grow in our faith. If we have the assurance and faith that all things are possible when coupled with the Lord and His atonement, then miracles can truly happen in our own lives and in the lives of those around us.

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

"Weeeeooooooo Weeeeeoooooo....." Shoot. That's a siren. I better pull over. So, you pull over. Out comes a little old lady in a motorized vehicle-- turns out she has a big bark, but no bite. "License and registration please...?" Silence. "You're not a police officer....." "Yeah, but I wanted to pull you over anyways...." In this situation you wouldn't allow the little old lady to write you a ticket, correct? Well, why not? She doesn't have the authority to write the ticket! Who does she think she is? Because she has no authority given to her, she has no right to pretend to be a police officer, and you therefore wouldn't give her your money, right? Similarly, God has given His servants, the prophets, the authority to act in His name. This authority is called the priesthood. Jesus Christ gave the priesthood to His original Twelve Apostles by ordination see John 1516, and they directed the work of His Church after Jesus ascended to heaven. But after the Apostles were killed, the priesthood gradually disappeared from the earth. In 1829 Joseph Smith received the priesthood authority to organize Christ’s Church from Heavenly Messengers who had held this authority anciently including the prophet John the Baptist and apostles Peter, James, and John. In 1830 the same Church of Jesus Christ that existed centuries ago was organized and restored to the earth. With that priesthood authority, baptism is performed correctly and in proper order. I know that we can rely on that truth. Show more Show less
