Hi I'm Cambria

I was born and raised in Arizona. I am a quilter and a golfer. I'm a wife. I'm half Australian. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife of 10 years this November. I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelors in Computer/Business Teacher Education. I am a quilter since 2005 all thanks to my husband realizing this new talent I didn't know I had. I love playing golf, especially with my dad. He taught me how to play golf when I was 12. I love camping and fishing and just being out in nature. I love to learn about different cultures and new places in the world. I love being in the kitchen with my husband cooking and baking together. We love trying new recipes. A dream of mine would be to have an entire room as a library with Floor to ceiling, wall to wall bookcases filled with books. We can't have children but we have always been blessed to teach children and teenagers and to have friends whose children we consider part of our family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints all my life. I had to find out for myself if the teachings that I had been taught by my parents were true. I was challenged by my church leaders to read and study the Book of Mormon especially a certain chapter and verses in the Book of Mormon and do what was asked. In the book of Moroni, the last book in the Book of Moroni, chapter 10 versus 3-7 exhorts us to read the Book of Mormon, pray and ask God if it is true with faith, desiring to know if it's true. And through the feelings and thoughts that I had after doing this over time, I knew it was true. And if the Book of Mormon is true then Joseph Smith was truly a prophet who saw and spoke with God and Jesus Christ in a grove of trees. And if Joseph Smith is a prophet then the teachings of the Church are true and I must follow them. I have been greatly blessed throughout my life because of my membership in the true church of Jesus Christ. My life hasn't been perfect but knowing Who I am, a daughter of God, and where I came from and where I am going has helped in making decisions in my life. I know that Jesus Christ died and rose again so we can repent of mistakes we have made and one day return and live with Heavenly Father again with our families if we try our very best to follow the teachings and principals of His Gospel. Being a Mormon has blessed my life and brings peace, joy, direction, and hope in a world of hopelessness, sin, sadness, and confusion.

How I live my faith

My husband and I get up every morning at 4:30am to go to one of the church buildings and teach Early Morning Seminary. This is where Latter-Day Saint or Mormon high school students come at 5:45am to learn and discuss the Old and New Testament, Book of Mormon, and Doctrine and Covenants through a 4-year program. I also play the piano for the young children's sunday school time on Sunday. I have been a computer/business teacher and have tried to set an example for my 7th/8th and even my high school students of honesty, kindness towards others, service, and by talking about my family and husband they would know how important my marriage and family are important to me. I let others know my standards by how I dress, speak and types of movies and music I love to listen to. I try my best to live up to what we teach so others may sometime ask questions about why I do the things I do. Our actions really do speak louder than words.
