Hi I'm Cameron

I play the drums. I love to play sports. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing sports! My favorites are tennis and ultimate frisbee, but I'll play any. Music is another large part of my life. The drums and piano are my favorite instruments and I could spend hours on both of them. I love to learn new things whether it is how to fix car problems to cooking. Family means the world to me and I love spending time with them. With 4 younger siblings, there is always something crazy going on in our house. I am currently 19 years old and am about to serve a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Houston, Texas.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church my whole life. I know when I was in my early teen years, I just went through the motions because that's what my parents wanted me to do. They always told me it was true and that they wanted me to go, so I did. I didn't really have a personal conviction these things were true till I turned 16. I was fortunate enough to have an amazing cousin that was an amazing example to me. He was a year younger than me, but completely dedicated to the Gospel. Because of his example, I wanted to know for myself if this was the true church. After praying and scripture study of the Book of Mormon, I know this is the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth today. The Book of Mormon is true and is such a valuable tool to learn and teach from. I know we have a living prophet today, Thomas S. Monson and I try my best to follow the counsel he gives. I am thankful for my Savior and what he has done for me. The gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me closer to God and I have experienced true and lasting happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to do what Jesus Christ would do. I know he is my Savior and by following him I can be truly happy in my life. Even though our house can get crazy with everyone in it, we try to read the scriptures and pray as a family daily. Callings in our church provide us with opportunities to serve and I have served in a large number of callings. I will be serving a full time mission for the next 2 years and I will be able to learn how to be more like my Savior and invite others to do the same.
