Hi I'm Cami

I grew up in Utah. I'm attending college. I'm an Interior Design major. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 19, and am currently attending college. My major is Interior Design, and I love it! Some of my hobbies are colorguard, ballroom dancing, and hula hooping. I love spending time with my family, and they are some of my best friends in in the whole world.

Why I am a Mormon

Being from Utah and growing up in an LDS family I grew accustomed to this faith and everything in entailed. I wouldn't say that I was always "converted" though. It took me until I was about 12 to really understand that I know this church is true. I have come to find out that wherever you are, and whatever your background is conversion is a choice. In the end no one forced me to choose to live the gospel and to continue living its doctrine once I moved out of my parent's home. It was my own personal choice, and I'm extremely thankful that I chose to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Living my faith has become who I am. Being a member of the Latter Day Saint church no longer is something else that I am. It's who I am. Everything I do is because I am a member. This is how I live my faith.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Baptisms for the dead are performed in our church because we believe in giving everybody the opportunity to find the joy in the gospel. When someone who has passed is baptized for they will still get the opportunity to choose to accept the baptism or not. Show more Show less

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

I feel that modesty and chastity are directly related. When we learn from the beginning that our bodies are sacred we will have the desire to dress modestly to show respect for them. When we get older and are faced with temptations related to chastity it will be easier to resist if we have always dressed modestly and have shown that we respect the bodies our Heavenly Father has given us. Parents can help their children have the desire to be modest by not allowing them to wear immodest or revealing clothing even as a child. We learn our behaviors when we are young, so this is the best time to teach a child the right way to dress. When we dress modestly it is also easier to be modest and appropriate in language and behavior as well. Show more Show less
