Hi I'm Cameron

I grew up in Montana. I served a 2-year mission in Cambodia. I'm currently an officer in the US Army. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the LDS church but had to find out for myself if it was true or not. I gained my testimony while serving my mission in Cambodia. It was one of the happiest times of my life, being able to serve others and see their own lives change for the better. Since my mission I have served in the US military, first in the US Coast Guard and now in the US Army. I graduated from Montana State University with a degree in Biochemistry and as a commissioned officer in the US Army. My employment service in the military has taken me to all the hemispheres on the globe. My experience has given me a lot of insight of how greatly blessed we are as Americans and the good that we can provide to other countries. It has also shown me how much corruption and evil their is in the world and how America is the last beckon of hope. I am happily married. My wife and I have two beautiful children that are the joy of my life. Nothing in my career provides me with the same amount of satisfaction as being a loyal husband and a loving father. I love watching football, barbequing outside, and riding my motorcycle. My life is very blessed and I have everything I need for joy and happiness.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes my life happy. I have no regrets with decisions I've made in the past. I don't have to worry about money, addictions, or other worldly insecurities because of the knowledge I have about this life and its profound meaning. My life isn't perfect, I do and always will experience hardships and trials, but all those things are put in place with an understanding of Jesus Christ and his gospel. As I strive to live the principles that I have been taught, my life has been happy and full of joy. My marriage is happy, my children are happy, and I don't feel any emptiness or a longing for something to complete my life. The greatest sense of physical, emotional, and mental security that I possess lies in the knowledge that I have about Jesus Christ. I know He is my personal Savior; a being who knows me personally and has walked the steps that I am walking. I know He has a plan for me and wants me to be happy in this life and in the next life. His restored Gospel provided me with everything I need to be happy. My life and core beliefs lie in the fact that I know, independent of any other person, that Jesus of Nazareth, the Babe of Bethlehem, is the Anointed Messiah and Savior of the World.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day. I pray throughout the day; I read scriptures from the Standard Works daily; I live my religion as best I can. I do my best to do at least one act of service, aside from my family responsibilities, each day. My wife and I have weekly Family Home Evening every Monday night, where we teach our children the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In the past, I've helped as serving as Cub Scout Pack Leader for my ward, served as assistant scout master, and have been an Executive Secretary to the bishop. I enjoy serving in the church, but really feel that I'm serving better when outside of church for people, regardless of their faith. My faith is not a Sunday faith. It is my lifestyle. All of my actions and beliefs are built upon the Lord Jesus Christ and his restored gospel. If I ever have questions about any secular or religious issue, I turn to the scriptures and pray for guidance.
