Hi I'm Cameron

I'm a lifelong musician and outdoorsman. I drive a Subaru. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a college student, but have received my mission call to Missouri. I grew up playing the piano, but now also play the guitar, bass, violin, organ, and drum set. I enjoy playing in musical groups of all types, whether it be the school orchestra or my alternative rock band. Music is an integral part of my life and I'm currently studying to become a movie composer. I enjoy almost all genres, but I'm particularly fond of Alternative, Classic Rock, and 80's. I was raised fishing with my dad, and I have loved it ever since. I love anything outdoors, whether it be hiking, fishing, kayaking, skiing, etc. I take any chance I have to be outdoors, especially with my family. I'm also an avid sports fan, particularly basketball. I am currently working on growing a full beard. My beard is red. My favorite movies are Star Wars and A River Runs Through It, and that about sums me up.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but that is not why I am still a member. I've tested the principles of the gospel, both by living them and not, and found that they are true. When I do the things the Lord asks me to do, such as serve others and obey the commandments, I'm a much happier individual. Being a member of the LDS church gives me so many opportunities to do good, and by taking those opportunities I've learned for myself of the validity of the Book of Mormon and truthfulness of the words of modern prophets. I'm a Mormon because it helps me be the best person I can be for myself, for my family, and for my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I believe the best way to show our faith in God is to treat and serve others as He would. I try to serve with the talents I've been blessed with, such as music. Twice or so a month I go to the Utah State Developmental Center, a place where the state takes care of people with severe mental and physical disabilities. I bring my guitar and violin and play songs for a lot of the residents there, and they seem to really appreciate it. I served as a Sunday school teacher for the 7-year-olds before I moved to my college ward, and I really enjoyed that. Every chance I get to be a friend to someone I try to take it, because I'd like to think they would do the same for me. I know Christ would, and that's why I do it. I serve to show I love my Savior.
