Hi I'm Camillia

I grew up in Idaho. I'm a college student. I'm a mormon

About Me

I'm a college student. Going to school to be an art/english teacher. I love drawing, sketching, painting, and being creative. I love creative writing and I'm hoping to write a novel.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but my conversion story still continues on. I'm still learning and growing in the church. I remember reading the scriptures for the first time when I was about twelve years old. I read the New testament first.I loved reading about my Savior. My testimony has never stopped growing. There have been times in my life when I hated myself for what I have done in the past. I've began to understand how the atonement really feels like. My Savior has taken the burden off of me. That I have been carrying for so long. I feel really close to my Savior and my Heavenly Father. I know my Savior died for me and that he lives! I know that I'm a daughter of God and that my Heavenly Father watches over me. I know the scriptures are the word of God. I love studying them and learning more about my Heavenly Father and Savior.

How I live my faith

My calling is a secretary assistant. I write what we are going to do on the board that day and I hand out hymn books. I hope to go to the temple and make another covenant(contract) with my Heavenly Father. I like doing service work in the community. I like to volunteer to help people. It makes me happy.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Camillia
When I look up in the sky full of stars. I think how small I am but I also think how wonderful it is to be part of God's creations. God is all around us. He is the architect of the Earth. He has given us agency(to be able to choose.) He ask us to talk to him day and night through prayer. When I think of Heavenly Father I think about my Dad. He wants to protect me and he wants me to be happy. God wants us all to be happy. He can't make choices for us. But he has given us this Earth and opportunities. You just have to look to find God.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Camillia
Mormons do regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God. When we read the Bible it is a testimony of Christ throughout. Just like the Bible the Book of Mormon is a testimony of Christ. Both help us come closer to Christ. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Camillia
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is him dying for each of us. It is Christ bearing not only our sins but also our suffering. He died for each of us because he loves us. It was necessary for Christ to suffer for us so that we all can be resurrected and be able to return back to our Heavenly Father. The atonement was necessary because without it we all won't be able to repent of our sins. We would all die in our sins and we would not be able to see our Heavenly Father again. With the atonement we are able to change and have those burdens we having been carrying in this life lifted. It is a wonderful gift that the Savior has given to all of us. Show more Show less

What is the difference between attending a church and attending a temple?

Camillia
The difference between attending a church and attending a temple. The temple is the Lord's House. We don't only do work for ourselves in the temple but we do work for those who have past on so that they might have the choice to choose that path if they want. Anybody can attend church. Not everybody can enter in the temple but the reason is that there are scared ordinances happening within the temple. Every Sunday at church we take of the sacrament(a covenant we made at baptism but renew every week). In the temple there are also covenants being made. Covenants are contracts with our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
