Hi I'm Camilla

I am from Los Angeles, CA. I love people, laughing, hiking, and the sunshine. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

There are 2 things that bring me the most joy in life. My faith and my family. My family is super close and always in each others' business. I am the youngest of 6 kids. We are all very loud and obnoxious but also full of love for one another. I couldn't ask for a more hilarious, entertaining, strong, happy, loving, and faithful family. Some of my hobbies are hanging out with friends, hiking/being outdoors (specifically at the beach), exercising/fitness (particularly, running), watching movies, and listening to music. I am very independent and beat to my own drum. Always have and always will. My parents always taught me to be confident in who I am. I was taught to love myself because Heavenly Father gave me my gifts, my strengths, and my weaknesses. I know as I trust in God and believe in His power I can do all things. Philippians 4:13

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is true. I read it for the first time when I was 17 years old and throughout my reading the Spirit burned inside my heart so strongly, filling me with joy and hope, telling me that it is of God, that it is true. The Book of Mormon changed my life from that point on and continues to change my life every time I read it. I would not be the person I am today nor would I have the relationship I have with my Heavenly Father had I not read the Book of Mormon. Because I know the Book of Mormon is true I also know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet and was called by God to restore the true church of Jesus Christ. I cannot describe the comfort and joy that comes from knowing the truth. I am so grateful and blessed to know God's word and the amazing love He has for me and all of His children. I am so grateful to know my Savior Jesus Christ so that I can become more like Him. “I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.” -Joseph Smith

How I live my faith

I love living the gospel of Jesus Christ because it brings so much joy to my life. I live the gospel by always trying to be more like Christ. Jesus Christ loved all of us so much that he gave his life so that we could have the opportunity to receive eternal life with Him and Heavenly Father. As a member of Christ's church I am His disciple, His representative. That being said, how can I not love everyone as He does? When we have charity towards all of God's children we are truly happy because when we are in the service of others we are in the service of God (Mosiah 2:17). Having this charity, this pure love of Christ, is what brings me true joy in my life.
