Hi I'm Cambell

I've grown up in Utah as well as Missouri, and I've always been a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being surrounded with friends, and close family. I will begin my freshmen year in the fall, where I will be studing Pre-Nursing. I recently moved from Provo, Utah.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in Provo, and lived there until I was 9. So growing up, I always went to church. After my family moved to Missouri, when I was 9, it was hard for me to make friends because none of them were LDS, and even if they were apart of a religion, they still didn't understand why I didn't go out on Sundays, or have sleepovers on Saturday nights. And that was hard. Eventually, I met some really great friends, who understood that I didn't do the same things as them, and they were okay with it. I was different, and I was okay with it. When I started Junior High, it became much harder. I was the only mormon in my entire school. I got asked a lot of questions, and I did my best to answer them, and ignore the jokes. By January of my 9th grade year, my parents divorced and I moved back to Utah with my dad. After coming back, to a place full of members, I was still different. I learned how to "be a mormon" a completely different way, socially, and personally. Adjusting was easy and difficult. I did not object to not having to go to early morning seminary, but not having something of my own among my peers was difficult. I always found my way, and I found the answers during personal prayer or others testimonies. The gospel has always helped me, and that's why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by showing compassion to all around me. I live my faith by doing my best, and doing what I can and what I should. I live my faith through knowing that I will always feel loved from doing what is right. I have family who are not members and chose to do things that do not correlate with my faith. But because I live my life to such high standards, they know, that I will never not do the right. I love them for who they are, and I will continue to love them, as I have been taught. Just knowing that what I'm doing, is right, helps me remember that I live my faith righteously, and I will always be supported.
