Hi I'm Cameron

I love my family, the outdoors, sports and I'm Mormon.

About Me

I suppose I'm a pretty typical middle aged Mormon male. I'm married to a wonderful wife and we have three beautiful daughters and two grandsons. I grew up in Utah in a Mormon family, with good and loving parents. I have three married sisters (yes, I have been surrounded by girls my whole life), and lots of wonderful nieces and nephews. I have many great memories growing up in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountians close to fishing, hunting and skiing, and I enjoyed these and other outdoor activities. In my adult life I have found that my career and raising children have not left me as much time for these activities, but I am not complaining.

Why I am a Mormon

I am proud of my Mormon heritage and have always felt lucky to have grown up in an LDS family. I have lived in four different states and I love the feeling of community and family in the church no matter where I land. But most of all I love the teachings of the church and the focus on our Savior, Jesus Christ, and what it means to be one of his followers. While I grew up in the LDS faith, I have read extensively, including the Bible and Book of Mormon. Through this study and much prayer, I have had very personal experiences that are a witness to me that what I believe is true. For me the Book of Mormon is another powerful witness and testament of the divinity of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith mostly by my example. While I am far from perfect and make mistakes daily, I try to follow the example of our Savior by treating others with kindness and respect. I try to be honest and ethical and to help others whenever possible. I earned my Eagle Scout rank in the Boy Scouts of America when I was a youth, and I love how my church uses the scouting program for our young men. If you read the Scout Oath and Scout Law you will see that the principles taught are perfectly aligned with gospel teachings. As an adult I have continued to be involved in the scouting program holding various positions helping young men become honest ethical and productive adults.
