Hi I'm Camryn Shields

I love everything about the ocean, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Northern California, which is where my love for the outdoors and the ocean grew. I spent time each year exploring the redwood forests and cliffside beaches. I moved to Utah as a teenager and spent time adventuring in the beautiful lakes and mountains. After high school, I had the opportunity to study at Brigham Young University-Hawaii. When I wasn't in class, I spent every second I could exploring the ocean; surfing, snorkeling, spear-fishing, and everything in between. I now work at a surf shop on the North Shore, doing what I love most every day, teaching children how to surf and paddle board.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because in a world full of so much darkness, I will always have a light to look too. I am a Mormon because I know that what I believe is true, and because I have faith in Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon, because by being a Mormon I am a part of a community full of so much love and so much kindness. I love my church, I love this gospel and I am very proud to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a representative of the church, and making it known unto others, by my daily actions, that I am a Mormon. I live my faith by preparing to serve a mission. I go to church each Sunday and help out wherever I am needed. I spend a lot of time with the youth, trying my best to be a good example for them. I live my faith by doing what is asked of me.
