Hi I'm Camille

I'm a mother. I'm an accountant. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When I was little, all I ever wanted to be was a mother. And I got that wish. For 14 years I had the blessing of being a stay-at-home-mom. It was wonderful, painful, fun, hard, fulfilling, and lonely. When we had been married for 6 years, I had the feeling that I needed to go back to school and get my degree. So I did. During that 2 years that I was going to school, I got pregnant, had a baby, we built a house, and I had carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands. But I survived and got my degree. And didn't use it. Seven years later, my husband lost his job. We struggled for 2 years, barely making ends meet. And then our van died and we had to buy another car. We didn't have the money for a car payment, so we knew it was time for me to go to work. Because of my degree, I was able to find a wonderful job with great flexibility. But that wasn't what I had planned for my life. I didn't want to take my 2-year-old daughter to a babysitter. I wanted to be home with her. I struggled for several years, wondering why I couldn't be home. But after many tears and many prayers, I realized that the Lord knew that I was going to have to go back to work, and He had prepared me to be ready. If I had not listened to the prompting and gone back to school, I would not have been as employable. I am grateful that I listened and was ready when a crisis hit our home. I am thankful for a Heavenly Father who knew what was coming and prepared me. I know He loves me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church, meaning my parents were active members. I have had the blessing of never doubting the Church was true. It all makes so much sense to me. But I have also prayed about it and received a confirmation from the Holy Ghost. That doesn't mean I am perfect. I have had struggles and still have struggles. But I am doing the best I can.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in everything I do. I say my prayers every day. We read the scriptures together as a family every day. I go to church every week with my family. I sing in the choir. I go and visit with other women in my ward area to give them a gospel message and make sure everything is okay. I try to attend the temple every month. My calling (job) in my ward is to be in charge of the compassionate service. So when a woman has a baby or someone has surgery, I organize meals to be brought in to the family. My life revolves around my faith. I cannot separate the two.
