Hi I'm Camille

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a woman who likes to experience life. I have attended college, become a registered nurse, married a man with whom I have made a life and a family, become a mother, and lived with heartache as well as happiness, sometimes at the same time. I love to ride roller coasters. I dream of living at the beach in a house of windows open to the sound of the surf. I love animals. I like to go camping, reading, gardening, and too many other things to list. I love big, loud family gatherings. I have 4 children, who are funny and exasperating at the same time.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were mormons when I was born, and although my mom's family was converted when she was a child, they didn't really attend church all that often. She usually went by herself and so when I was born, she was very active in our church. I think when I was 15 I really began to want to know for myself if all this stuff that I was learning about was really true. My teacher in seminary was constantly challenging us to pray about it and ask God to let us know if it was true. And so one day, I went up to my room, knelt down by the side of my bed, and prayed to our Father in Heaven for a long time to know if this gospel was really true, and if it was, was the Book of Mormon really true, as well. I got up after praying and thought, "Ok, now what?" I didn't really feel all that different. A few days later I was sitting in the audience listening to someone tell an experience they had had in the gospel, listening to them say how they knew it was true, and my whole body began to feel on fire. I knew at that minute that Heavenly Father had answered my prayer and that this gospel was the true restored gospel on the earth. Since then, I have had so many experiences that have made my belief that Heavenly Father is real, is interested in us, knows who we are, and wants us to be happy. I feel deep in my heart that if nothing else, this true gospel causes us to try every day to be better than we were the day before. It asks us to stretch ourselves to live what we believe. And if we don't do well one day, we can try again the best we can tomorrow.

How I live my faith

I try to live what I believe by giving service to my neighbors, helping out in the schools, as well as knowing my children's friends and their parents. We have volunteered for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, since we have 2 daughters with Insulin Dependent Diabetes. We have tried to help pass legislature to assist families with this disease. As a Registered Nurse and Certified Lactation Consultant, I also take calls from women who have just had babies and have questions about breastfeeding their babies after they have been discharged from the hospital which I offer as community service. I work with the youth in our church and love to be around them while they learn who they are and what they are capable of. I believe that we should love our neighbors as ourselves, and try to do this every day.
