Hi I'm Cameron

I have lived in a small town in Arkansas for most of my life. I love soccer and music, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of four, having two sisters and a brother. I was raised in the church. My parents were always supportive in any activity I chose, so being the ambitious child that I was, I chose as many as would fit into my schedule. I eventually limited my extra-curricular endeavors and stuck to soccer, running, and music. I've played soccer since I was four and ran since I was eight. I have a love for sports in general, but that doesn't mean I'm any good at all of them. Mostly, I am an avid musician. I began piano lessons at the age of eight, joined the middle school band at eleven, and bought my first guitar at twelve. My passion just grew from then on. I've played in a few rock bands, done some acoustic performances, and played on my high school drumline for four years.

Why I am a Mormon

While I was born a member of this church, it is still my personal choice to continue to be a part of it. This is a church of happiness and it teaches eternal trues. People wonder why I give up so much to be a part of this church, but I don't see it that way. I look at what I'm gaining from living the principles that I've been taught from childhood. I know that families have the opportunity to be together for eternity. I also know we have a Savior that knows each and every one of us personally and he loves us. These are such warm and comforting truths, and I could not imagine life without understanding these things.

How I live my faith

I try to lead the life that I know I should. I follow the standards set by the church, and know that they are for my benefit. It's hard to stay strong when you live in a small, southern town, where iced tea and coffee are everyday essentials and tobacco use and alcohol is prevalent, but I know that I am happier and blessed for it. I am a part of the small youth program that we have, and I recently received my call to serve a two-year mission. I decided to do so when I was young, and now I'm fulfilling that goal.
