Hi I'm Cami

I'm a college student. I teach special needs kids life skills. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from a small town in the middle of nowhere Nevada. I love the outdoors and spending time with family and friends. My family means the world to me, and my friends help keep me sane. I am so grateful for the amazing people in my life. I'm currently going to school to be an Occupational Therapist. My goal is to help special needs kids develop life skills so they can live happy and independent lives. There's nothing sweeter than the smile of a child, and I look forward to the day when I can have my own children.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was raised in the Church, I had to gain a witness of its truthfulness for myself. The Book of Mormon prophet Moroni promised that sincere seekers of truth will receive a witness from Heavenly Father. I know with all my heart that this is the one and only true Church, founded by Jesus Christ Himself. Life is hard for everybody. I am grateful to know that I have a Savior who knows me and loves me. That's really what converted me to this church. Knowing that my Savior saw my face as He suffered in Gethsemane, knowing that He prayed for strength to fulfill the Atonement for my sake, has changed my heart and how I perceive myself and others. Every person is a son or daughter of God. Christ atoned for me; He atoned for you, too. He made it possible to return home to our Father in Heaven. I know I can live with my family forever, and I know you can, too. There's a peace that comes from knowing who you are, where you came from, and where you are going. Although those questions may seem so cliché, there are fundamental to who we are as human beings. This Gospel answers life's questions; through the gentle promptings of the Holy Spirit, we can come to know these truths for ourselves.

How I live my faith

A big part of living what you believe is by making decisions. Whether it was choosing to continue my education, to become involved with my young single adult ward here at college, or to surround myself with the kind of people I want to be like, I have acted on the faith I have in my Savior. I have chosen to live a life worthy of someday going to the temple and receiving blessings that are only available there. That is my first priority in life. Jesus Christ went about healing the sick and blessing the lame; I want to follow His example and be His hands. There are so many ways to do this. I chose my career path because I knew I wanted to help people, especially those with special needs. I am developing skills that will help others and my future family. I live my faith by having a good attitude. Being optimistic isn't ignoring the bad, it's believing in the good. Because I know that my Savior loves me, I can smile despite the chaos of college life. I plan for the future, develop back-up plans, and trust that the Lord will provide in my times of need. I can be optimistic because I know that as I go forward, believing that Heavenly Father will provide, everything will work out as it is supposed to.
