Hi I'm Kameron Lightheart

I was born into the Church, but didn't become fully converted until age 18. I am going to serve a mission in Mexico 2015-2017.

About Me

What can I say, I've lived a pretty normal life just like everyone else. At least that's what it appears from the outside, but in fact I believe my life has been quite extraordinary. I have been blessed in so many ways starting with I growing up in my amazing family. My Dad was born into the church just like me and my Mom was a convert at age 17 after seeing the example my Dad and many other of her friends who were LDS set in high school. They married in the temple and set out to start a family which led to my three sibling and I being brought into this world. I am a middle child which has been a blessing since I was able to learn from my older sisters triumphs and faults as well as set the example as best as I can for my two younger siblings. Sounds like a pretty normal life right? Well that's because you haven't experienced it through my eyes. My family members are some of the strangest people, but that's what I love about them. All the experiences I've had with them have brought many emotions, both joy and misery, fun and boredom, which have ultimately grown me into who I am today and for that I am grateful. I have recognized that God has blessed me with many talents and abilities and I plan to try to utilize that and bring him glory. On way I'm going to do that is through going on a mission to Mexico this next month. (Feb 2015- Feb 2017). As far as my plan from there I am planning to attend BYU, marry a special girl and set out to start my own family.

Why I am a Mormon

I could easily say I'm Mormon because I was born that way or because my parents are, but that's just not true. I have my agency and could have easily chosen another path and in fact there have been times where I've almost fallen away, but that thing that has always brought me back is the undeniable warmth and love I feel when I do go to church and live worthily. I lived most of my life wondering if I actually knew it was true myself, but thinking back, it was always the one thing that I knew I was doing right in life. I solidified my beliefs at the age of 18 at a young men's spiritual campout. I prayed to know if what I was doing and all the things I've been taught are true and received an answer through the comfort and peace that came. I believe in this gospel with all my heart and will continue to grow in my faith as long as I live and into the next life, because I know that only through it I can receive everlasting life and eternal happiness.

How I live my faith

Growing up in the church has made it easy to take the first steps such as going to church and getting baptized. I've always followed the example of my parents and that was always wonderful. I have served several callings as a teenager including leading the 12-13, then 14-15, then finally 16-18 year-olds. I have always done my best to always come to church and fulfill my duties. Going forward I have decided to heed to God's calling and serve a mission to give back for all that I have received, as well as to hopefully grow in the gospel even more.
