Hi I'm Camille

I'm a Mormon who grew up as a member of the Church.

About Me

I'm a wife and mom of 3 kids; have LOVED the kid part of my life and would love to be doing it full-time. But life happens... so I work full-time outside the home, part-time at home running our home business, and try to juggle it all like everyone else. When I had time for hobbies, I loved to sew, garden, run and swim, read. I have served most of my adult life with the youth in and out of our Church. They're wonderful and continually remind me that we're in good hands for the future. They gravitate to good things, they have strength and pure desires. But we have to teach them good things.

Why I am a Mormon

Though I was born and raised in the Church, I had to earn my personal testimony of the principles of the Gospel. I didn't always live according to the principles the Church teaches. I know first-hand that there is a way to live my life that brings peace, joy, real happiness. I have read the Book of Mormon many times; it has provided me real answers to the real questions of my everyday life. I know it was written, thousands of years ago, for me, today. I have made covenants with God in His Holy Temple. There, too, I find the answers to specific questions and concerns. There I find peace and calm in a world that provides just the opposite. The opportunities given me through the Church of Jesus Christ for service, learning and growth have not presented themselves, in my life, in any other place in such great measure. I'm a Mormon because it makes me truly happy.

How I live my faith

- I currently serve with the youth 12-18; have done so most of my adult life. They are awesome!!! - I love the ministering program of the Church called Visiting Teaching. Women visit women in their homes (or wherever :D) and spend time sharing thoughts, concerns, lots of laughs, and tears. Women need each other! - Weekly Sunday Church meetings give me the strength I need to take on another week. It gives me the opportunity to partake of the Sacred Sacrament Ordinance and recommit myself to the Lord. - My family has Family Home Evening on Monday nights whenever possible - there is strength in praying together, teaching each other about Gospel truths, playing games and laughing, and of course eating cake!
