Hi I'm Camilla Joy Summers

The restored Gospel of Jesus Christ--the truths taught in The Book of Mormon are true. God & his son, Jesus Christ live.

About Me

I am a Graphic Design at BYU and have studied both at BYU-Idaho and BYU Jerusalem. Painting, writing, running, practicing yoga, playing sports, snowboarding, listening to music, playing the piano, cooking, traveling and thrift-shopping are among some of my favorite hobbies. I served as a full time missionary in the Novosibirsk Russia mission where I taught the people of Siberia the gospel and inviting them to come to Christ. My mission was a miracle. I learned so much about the atonement and about the plan God has for each of his precious children. My life has been so blessed by the things taught in The Book of Mormon and The Bible. There is a certain peace that comes when we study the scriptures and act upon it's teachings. I know without a doubt that we have a loving God in heaven who cares about each one of his children and is concerned about the details in our lives. He sent his son Jesus Christ to this earth to save us and he is our elder brother, he lives. I know this because I have felt it in my soul with an unshakable doubt. This gospel is true and our time here on earth is precious as we prepare to meet God.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my family before me were members, but when I was eight years old I decided to get baptized for myself. Having the gospel in my life has been the most profound blessing I could ever receive. Every day I am reminded that my father in heaven loves and cares about me. He knows each of his children individually and I know that if we subject ourselves to him, he will lead us by the hand towards salvation.

How I live my faith

Each day I act with the mindset of striving to "be my best self", the kind of person that God wants me to be. I strive to read my scriptures, serve others and pray each day. I live my faith by sharing my testimony on a daily basis through my example, in conversations and through technology. I dress modestly because I know my body is a temple, a gift from God. I use clean language, I refrain from media that distracts my spirit and I treat others with kindness because I have promised to be a disciple of my Elder brother Jesus Christ. I have been blessed to serve as a full-time missionary in the Novosibirsk Russia mission and each day I invite new strangers and friends to come closer to God through this restored gospel. Each person deserves to find out for themselves if the teachings of The Book of Mormon and restored gospel are true. Because of the things I believe I strive to emulate the example of my brother Jesus Christ both through frequent vocal testimony and example.
