Hi I'm Cameron

I was born in Logan, I'm a swimmer. I'm a Missionary for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints I'm a mormon.

About Me

I was born in Logan, Utah and raised in Gilbert, Arizona. I was born into the church and to a wonderful family. I'm a older and younger brother. I have five brothers and sisters, 20 year old sister and married, I am 18, 15 year old sister, 13 year old brother, 8 year old sister, and 5 year old brother. With three boys and three girls in the house it can get pretty crazy sometimes. I am just a normal kid like everyone else and do the same things. Once in high school I could have started swimming but i had just gotten a horse and told my self I didn't have time. Well after a year of rodeos, and lots of hard work I decided to try out swim team. My only regret is that I didn't do it my freshman year. I learned more life lessons at swim practice than anywhere else. The most important thing I learned was to do my best. My coach always said, "Swim as fast and hard as you can until you see black dots...then swim harder" Nothing is more true about life. I did my best and more in every race and I have no regrets. I know that if I live by that in life I will have no regrets. I graduated high school this year and can't wait to leave on my Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate to be born into a wonderful family who raised me in the Gospel. Growing up I learned from my parents example and testimonies that this Church is the one and true Church on the face of the Earth today. They taught me who Jesus Christ was and is today. I am a Mormon because I decided that I need to know if what I have been taught my whole life was true. I put in the time and effort to read the Book of Mormon and then to pray to know of its truthfulness. I can tell you with out the shout of a doubt that this is the true church of Jesus Christ and that he died on the cross for each one of us. He suffered in the garden of Gethsemane for every sin of every single person who has lived, is living, and those to come. He knows my pains and struggles and stands by me no matter what. I know that Joseph Smith saw Jesus Christ and God the Father. He translated the Book of Mormon and that book is inspired of God. Everything that has transpired since the Restoration of the Church has been foreordained and meant to happen the way it did. I know that once this life is over I will see my family once again and live with them. My family is eternal now and forever. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

My religion requires that every member lives their faith twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred and sixty five days a year. We do not check our religion at the door. I participate in the young mens program very regularly and help plan out the activities every Wednesday. I have two families that I visit each month to make sure they are taken care of and they know that if they ever are in need of anything that they can call me and I will be there to help in a heart beat. We call this home teaching. I also have the amazing opportunity to teach some of the younger children each Sunday in primary. Teaching these little boys and girls has taught me more about myself than a lot of things I have done in my life. Having been in the young mens program for over six years I have learned more life lessons there than a public school could ever hope to teach. You learn that service is not something to dread but to look forward to and enjoy, you are taught outdoor skills and emergency preparedness so you can be ready at a moments notice. Most of all you make life long friends who influence you for the better. Everything I have ever done or been a part of in my life has prepared me to make the decision to serve a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am privileged to serve the Lord and I am completely ready and willing to do so. I want share with everyone I can the joy and knowledge that this church has brought my family and I.
