Hi I'm Camille

I am a wife and a stay at home mom. I love books, music and spending time with family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife and mother. I struggled with infertility for three years and finally had a beautiful little boy. I love being a mother. I also love reading, sewing, singing and spending time with my family and friends. I am the youngest of eight children and love belonging to a big family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My parents always strongly encouraged all of their children to find out for themselves if the LDS church is true. I frequently prayed and studied the scriptures growing up and received my own testimony that Christ suffered and died and rose again so that I may return to my Father in heaven. I also received a testimony that Christ came to the Americas and visited the Nephites. The most important thing to me in this life is my family and the knowledge that we can be together forever.

How I live my faith

I am a visiting teacher in my home ward. I also serve on the Relief Society Meetings Committee. In this calling I help organize monthly activities for the women in my ward. These activities can involve anything from putting together pillows for cancer patients to learning how to can fruits and vegetables. Serving in this calling has helped me to not only increase my own knowledge and talents but that of other women as well. It has also helped me to get to know and understand these women. Serving in the church helps me feel connected to the people around me.

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

As a member of the church you are asked to donate the time and talents you have to help others. By giving freely of your time and serving without pay in the church, allows tithing money to go toward those who can really benefit from it. Those who are truly struggling financially or have experienced some sort of natural disaster and are in need of aid. Show more Show less
