Hi I'm Cameron

I'm competitive, I'm a digital marketer, and I'm a Mormon. I'm proud of it too!

About Me

I currently work for an ad agency on the digital marketing team. I specialize in search engine ads and social media ads. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in marketing. I served a two year mission for Christ in Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri. My wife and I have been married for two and a half years and we're excited to welcome a little girl to our family. I am the youngest of three boys and my older brothers are some of my best friends. Family is very important to me. Some of my hobbies include picking locks (locksport is a hobby, I didn't believe it at first either), reading, playing sports (of just about any kind), outdoor activities of any kind, and collecting sports cards.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a 'Mormon', but I wasn't always converted. I stayed in the Church when I was growing up because it felt right, but the Holy Spirit hadn't yet testified to me that the Church was what it claimed to be: Christ's -- original Church once more on the earth. I had to find out on my own if what I'd been taught all my life was correct. I prayed and asked God the Father if this Church is His Son's Church and the Holy Spirit confirmed to me that it was. I didn't receive my answer by hearing a voice or by seeing a vision, but the Spirit touched my heart in a way that was unmistakable. I now know for myself, independent of anyone else, that is Christ's restored Church. This is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I believe religion is more than just a hobby, it's a lifestyle. I am a Latter-day Saint and I try to show that by how I live my life. I try to follow the example of the Savior Jesus Christ above all else, He went about doing good and I try to do the same. I'm not perfect like Christ and I never will be in this lifetime, but I try my hardest to live my life like He lived His by lifting up those around me.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Serving a mission isn't a requirement, like everything in life it's an individual choice. Similarly, people can choose to accept Christ or they can reject Him. People can choose to wear jeans or they can choose to wear shorts. We always have a choice. I chose to serve a mission because I've seen how happy Christ's full gospel has made me and I want to share the source of my happiness the gospel with everyone I can. I have friends who chose not to serve missions, but I don't love them any less than the friends who have served or are currently serving missions. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

This is an excellent question that we get asked a lot. People sometimes wonder why we don't focus only on non-Christians. We preselyte because we have found out from the Spirit that we have the fulness of the gospel. Many churches if not all have a lot of truth, but they lack the fulness and that is what we offer.
