Hi I'm Camille!

I am a senior in high school, and I'm loving it. I play tennis and sing in choir. I am a Mormon.

About Me

 I absolutely love to sing. I've been in choir since fourth grade, and I'll never stop. I also love to play tennis with my family. I'm going to start college in January, and I'm very excited. I want to go into pediatric oncology. I love the gospel and its teachings with all my heart.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was born into the Church and to some awesome parents. My whole life has been centered around the Church, and I wouldn't have it any other way. In the beginning, I was a Mormon simply because my parents were. I wasn't old enough to wonder why I was what I was or why I believed as I did. Later in life, I sought my own testimony, and I know for myself that the Church is true. I can't think of anything I would rather be than a Mormon.

How I live my faith

 I try to live my faith every day. Some days are harder than others, but I'll never stop trying. I do my best to keep the commandments and to improve each day. I'm nowhere near perfect, but hopefully I'm getting a little closer. I am a leader in the young women's program, and I love my girls. I pray for them frequently, and I just love being there for them when they need a friend.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Camille!
 We believe that everyone needs to have the opportunity to hear and accept the gospel. This does not mean that everyone will accept the gospel, but they need to have the choice. We also believe that it is possible to do this after death. Baptism is an ordinance essential for salvation, so we enter the Lord's holy temples to do these ordinances for those who passed on without an opportunity to accept the gospel. This enables those who have accepted the gospel after their death the opportunity to have the blessings that come from these sacred ordinances. Show more Show less
