Hi I'm Camren

I love serving others, I am an LDS missionary serving in Des Moines, Iowa, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Some of my favorite things to do are working out, hanging out with friends, working in the healthcare field as a care giver and CNA.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family. I spent my youth going to church with my family. However, there is always a point in everyone life where they need to own and take more responsibility of what they believe. For me that was at age 12 years old. I was living in Wisconsin and I could see that my life and the way I was living was a significant blessing to me. I felt the confirmation of the Holy Spirit reassuring me that my impressions were correct. I chose to continue to follow those feeling and promptings and continued to learn and grow step by step as I was building my faith in Christ and understanding the greater purposes of life. I had many friends who were wonderful people who did not share my religion, but often, they would often remark about how they liked and agreed with the principles which I chose to govern my life. I am a Mormon today, because I choose to be and I have had many experiences that have helped me build my faith and relationship with Diety. I know the principles I live by today bless my life and were taught to me within the LDS Church. It has been a great blessing to me and has been an essential resource to help me guide my way through my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing things that help me build my understanding of truth and doing my best to be an example of what I believe. I like trying to understand others perspective and considering there experiences as I continue to gain my understanding of the world that I live in. Its not always clear to me why things happen to people or the world around me, but I know that by being open to learning through reputable sources, I will always grow and gain greater appreciation for the good in this world and a better understanding of how God helps us all grow through our experiences.
