Hi I'm Beth Camp

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a person who decided a long time ago to enjoy life and where I am. In high school, I never just had one career choice, but wanted to do many things, Thankfully, I have had the opportunity! I am a hobby farmer (complete with a minture donkey named Yoder) who lives close enough to a big city to shop and dine, but far enough away to avoid traffic and smog. My dream to live in a high rise loft in a major downtown city at 17 was changed (thankfully) at 27 to a great ten acres that ten year later is my family's personal haven from the world. It is the never ending project! I love DIY projects. I will tackle anything- from painting walls (repeatedly), refinishing hardwood floors to building a wooden fence. I am a mother to the most wonderful kid ever. My sweet husband and I have been married for seventeen years in spite of the fact he sometimes has to make sure he is in the right house after coming in to all the furniture being moved around since he left. I enjoy volunteering as a Girl Scout leader (complete with cookies...), FFA Alumni, school, Family History consultant, Primary leader and various local organizations. Oh, I also sell real estate. I love working with people to find the home and community where they will be able to enjoy life as much as me!

Why I am a Mormon

I have lived not practicing my faith and practicing- I will admit full heartedly that I am happier and my home is more peaceful as I strive to live the teaching of the Church. I returned to full activity in the Church after 9/11. As I was watching television one evening pondering what this crisis meant to me, President Gordon B Hinkley appeared on a new show. His presence and words conforted me in ways nothing else had in days. It suddenly occurred to me the reason- he was a true prophet speaking for our Savior. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is restored to this earth and available to us all. What peace my soul felt! I suddenly was starving to read the scriptures. I was searching to know who I was and my purpose in God's Plan.

How I live my faith

I work with children at church. It is such a great blessing to be able to share my love of Jesus Christ with them. Their sweet spirits humble me how important they are and their infinite potential as children of God. It is an honor to teach them each person is important to our Heavenly Father and He wants each of us to return to live with him. He sent His Son to come to earth and give us a perfect example how to live. He sent prophets to teach us and witness that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of us all. He sent scriptures to comfort and guide us through this life. As a Family History Conultant, I help individuals trace their family trees. It is so much more than names on paper. Each person had joys and struggles. Amazingly, so often those I help realize their families are like them- not perfect, but human. Working in my community, I try to lend a hand to help organizations that help people. My Girl Scouts often collect can goods for a local food pantry and make Christmas cards for an area nursing home. I try my best to live my faith through service and love.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Beth Camp
Of course not! The Church donates money, food, and material to assist in disasters and all forms of humanitarian aid through out the world regardless of religious affiliation. Locally, we put together several hundred tolietry kits (wash cloth, soap, razor, toothbrush and paste, comb) that will be sent all over the world when needed. Our woman's organization partnered with a local hospital to provide new mothers with a diaper bag and baby items. Many members in my Branch volunteer at a local soup kitchen. Show more Show less
