Hi I'm Cameron Beard

I grew up in Austin, Texas. I am a college student, an outdoor lover, a drummer, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Texas my entire life. I love being outdoors and greatly enjoy water sports. I love to play basketball and soccer. I am a student at Brigham Young University–Provo. I am studying Biochemistry at BYU Provo. I am planning to serve a full-time mission in Daejeon, Korea.

Why I am a Mormon

As a member of the LDS Church my entire life, I followed my parents example. It wasn't until I was in my later years of middle school that I began to have a burning testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have felt the spirit testify to me that the doctrines I have learned in this church are true. I know this peaceful feeling I have felt is divine and allows me to understand Joseph Smith as a true prophet of God and the Book of Mormon is the Word of God. I am truly grateful to have this opportunity to learn about the gospel and make covenants with my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I am doing my best to become more like my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. If is it by praying and reading my scriptures or helping someone in need and finding opportunities to serve others, I know I can become closer to Him.
