Hi I'm Camille

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married 9 years to my wonderful & supportive husband. I stay at home with our 3 kids; 8, 6 & 18 months; whom we adopted from foster care. I am active in the church and enjoy my calling in the nursery, watching kids from 18 mon-3 years during 2 hours of Sunday meetings. In Januray I decided to finally go back to school to become & esthetician & I'm loving it! I guess I've come a long way in the mormon religeion. Born and raised mormon, you'd think I'd have life all figured out. My teen rebellion got the best of me and I made poor dating choices and ended up married to a guy that sent me over the edge. I ran to Ohio, escaping the situation & nanny 4 young children. I enjoyed my time away from the drama filled life I had created, and was thrilled to make new friends and find my way back to the church through the singles ward. I had the marriage annulled, got my life on track, & returned back to my life and family at home. A short time later I reconnected with my now husband who had, himself, been off track from the Lord's standards. Together we vowed not only to stay together for this life, but to make a goal to be later sealed in the temple as a family and to raise our kids on the right path with high standards. It's been 7 1/2 wonderful years since we were sealed and our marriage and family can't be any better. We have truly been blessed in life and recognize that ALL of our blessings come from the Lord and our Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to my Mormon Mom & Dad. They were typical mormon kids married young and being extremely fertile had 4 kids right in a row, with a 5th down the road a few years. Something that tends to happen a lot in mormon families. LOL They raised us in the Mormon faith and all of my siblings with the exception of me stayed faithful. I let my teen rebellion pull me away for a few years which you can read in "about me" section, but I knew that I always believed the principles of our gospel and therefore returned to the church and back to full activity. Being part of the Mormon community is like none-other. The amount of people you know just from church alone is amazing. The friendship and sisterhood that comes from the women's organization 'Relief Soceity' is so comforting. You always have help when needed, you always have a friend, you can always rely on someone! The members of my Church Ward are like family! I love being a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I know that the Church is true and I have come to know that through my own scripture study and daily personal prayers. By knowing the Church is true, I have no choice but to do my best to make the right decisions and live the gospels standards. In a world where honesty is getting harder and harder to come by, people rarely have integrity, and moral standards are at a all time low- I turn to my Savior for support. I am uplifted each time I read the scriptures, I feel loved each time I pray to Him, and I am fulfilled each Sunday at Church being surrounded by those who share my same standards and goals. I live the word of wisdom not taking harmful things into my body, it is not hard to live by. I am healthy and take pride in that. I was raised believing the word of wisdom and therefore, made an early choice not to drink, smoke, experiment with drugs, or even drink coffee/tea for that matter. Those choices blessed me to stay out of harmful situations and maintain a healthy, beautiful body. One in which the Lord has blessed me with. The Law of Chastity used to be a no-brainer for anyone. Everyone knows that an affair is wrong. But sadly, in this day, it happens far too often. Unfortunately, not too many people even believe in saving sexual activity for after marriage. I was taught this principle, and unfortunatly didn't have the courage to live it. I have seen 1st hand how heartbreaking this bad choice can be. It leaves you feeling paranoid, scared, and sad. Specially when that "special one" isn't THE ONE. I strongly enourage the youth of our church to stick to this standard and never back down, the blessings will be far greater!

Are Mormons Christians?

Camille
Mormons are most definetly Christians! We are the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We are followers of Christ. Everything our church teaches is about Christ, how to truly KNOW Him, and how to become like Him. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Camille
Because we believe we were sent this this earth and to this family for a reason. A family unit is central to the Lord's plan. We believe that we can be sealed to our families in our holy and sacred temples, not only for this life but for eternity. Show more Show less
