Hi I'm Cambree

I love my family and friends, I am from a small-town, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second of six kids in my family. I have three adopted siblings, a brother from Puerto Rico, an African American sister from Chicago, and a Pacific Island sister from Florida. My family means everything to me and I cherish every moment I get to spend with them. In the summer, I love to be outside, be it on the river, camping, kayaking, or backpacking. I have danced since a very young age and I have trained in many styles. Though it was a major learning experience, I enjoyed my freshman year at college and it helped me discover my purpose for this life and what it is I need to do. I am a social person and I just like having people around. I love to laugh, meet new people, and have crazy "adventures." I love my life and all of the people in it, especially my opportunity to be a member of this gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this gospel simply because I know without a doubt that it is true. For a time in my younger years, I just went through the motions because that's what you do. I guess you could say I wanted to do what was right but I had not figured out the point of this gospel for myself. I "read" the scriptures everyday, said real quick prayers, and went on with life. However, when I realized the purpose of those small day to day tasks, I recognized the witness of the Holy Ghost that Heavenly Father was placing in my life. Each day I try to find how Heavenly Father is involved in the small details of my everyday life. Time and time again, I am reminded how true this gospel is and how much it should and does guide my life. There is a peace and comfort that comes with being a member of this gospel that cannot be found anywhere else. It is knowing that families can be eternal, that we have a caring and loving Father in Heaven who is deeply interested in us, and that we have a Savior who has made it possible for us to become perfect resurrected beings and stand in the presence of our Father. I am a member of this church because the blessings I receive from it are a testament of how much my Father in Heaven loves me.

How I live my faith

As a member of this wonderful church, I strive to live my faith every single day. Through each little decision and action, I continually try to keep my life in line with the path my Savior would have me take. While at college, I taught a gospel doctrine class. In studying the lessons each week, I learned what the importance of applying principles was in my life. As I made a goal each week to become better, I noticed the immense amount of blessings and help from my Heavenly Father I received. Since the age of twelve, I made a goal to read my scriptures every day. I have continued to maintain that goal and I know without a doubt that the words on those pages are true. I know that I can search and ponder the words of the scriptures and I will gain answers to my prayers and a greater understanding of Christ's Atonement. I am happy to live each day in accordance with the principles of this gospel because I know with all my hear that it is true. Because I have aligned my decisions with the teachings of this Church I have experienced blessings beyond describing. I am grateful I have a knowledge of the true church to help me live my life day to day.
