Camille met Tim, her teen sweetheart, and they have been happily married for 27 years. They have a 22-year-old daughter, Ellie, an artist/photographer and 2 singer-songwriting, rock-star sons, Andy and Aaron, 19 and 18 years old. Camille and Tim, both native New Yorkers, worked with middle-school and high school-age teens for 17 years. 15 years ago, they established Oasis Church NYC, with a team of good friends that faithfully lead with them.
Camille is passionate about many things. Her desire is to help women discover their God-given design through teaching biblical principles. She loves laughing with her girlfriends, singing, playing piano and leading worship. And coffee. She loves coffee.
I am so thrilled you're here! The idea to create this blog “Because She Chose” was born out of my desire to showcase women whose stories inspire me. I wanted to create a space where their triumphs can be celebrated. When you share your story, powerful things happen. Not only are you empowered to do great things, but your story can empower others as well. I believe choices are an important part of what makes our stories so powerful. Like anything in life, change begins with choice. We have the ability to make better choices every day.
Jim Rohn was an entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker who stated, “If you don’t like how things are, change it. You are not a tree. You have the ability to totally transform every area in your life—and it all begins with your very own power of choice.” Most mature trees have a deep root system and cannot move. We all have the ability to not only move, but to spread wings and fly.
My purpose and mission is to encourage, inspire and motivate women to become all they are meant to be. Have you ever wished for an older and wiser woman to come along side you in support and show you what she's learned along life's journey? I know I have. If you have found yourself here, it is not by accident. Maybe you are in a place of waiting for a dream to come to pass. Maybe you are trying to find where you fit or are unsure if you are on the right path life has for you.
I'd be honored if you'd join me in exploring these and other topics we may have in common. My hope is that you will learn how you are designed for purpose. Join me as we discover how important knowing your worth and identity is. Please subscribe below so we can stay in touch! Looking forward to getting to know you!
