Hi I'm Maegan Michelle

I am a wife and mother. I love writing, interior design, music, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

Hi, I'm Maegan. I'm a wife and mother of two adorable little boys. My interests are: hiking, camping, gardening, reading, writing, drawing & painting, and sewing. I also enjoy playing the piano, listening to music, and am currently working on a novel. Going on dates with my husband is one of my favorite way to relax, and some of my favorite outings with my boys have included going to the park, the zoo, the aquarium, and to relative's homes. In 2005 I completed a MAA certificate. I love to learn new things, and plan on pursing writing; time permitting. My family is very important to me. I feel very blessed and fortunate.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a member of the church, but as everyone discovers you cannot lean on the testimony of your parents forever. For me, there was no shining moment to becoming converted. It was the little things; everyday things, that brick by brick built the foundation of what I now know to be true. It really came down to promptings of the spirit, answers to my prayers, enlightenment, peace, pure happiness, and a knowledge of Heavenly Father's love for me. My testimony, though natural, was something I had to work for. Scripture study and Sabbath Day worship are a couple of things that helped me to develop this. I was also able to participate in seminary and institute classes that reenforced what I believed to be true (Seminary & institute classes occur during the week and are similar to Sunday School lessons except that they are, many times, less formal and give the student different opportunities in participation. Their main similarity is that they are both places where one can learn about gospel principles and doctrine). Because of spiritual impressions, study, and faith I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. He did, in fact, see The Father, and His Son Jesus Christ. He translated the Book of Mormon-Another Testament of Jesus Christ's life-this Book, I know to be true I know that we have a living prophet today, President Thomas S. Monson. He guides this church under the direction of Jesus Christ Himself. I also know that we individually can receive inspiration as we live worthy. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. He has bought our souls with His precious blood, and because of His Atonement for us we can be forgiven of sins. He is my Redeemer and Friend. I also know that God is my Heavenly Father. I am a child of God. We all are children of God, and He loves us with the purest love there is. His love is unfeigned, unconditional, and everlasting. He sees us as we are, and as what we can become. This is the foundation of my testimony, and although I have a knowledge of many principles of the gospel these are my core beliefs. What every other principle of the gospel depends on. This knowledge has made all the difference in my happiness, peace of mind, and the decisions I make. It has made me the person I am, and will continue to shape me forever.

How I live my faith

I appreciate the opportunities the Church gives me to serve and get involved. Whether I'm baking potatoes for an activity, visiting with a friend, sharing my testimony, going to the temple, or being a shoulder to cry on I know I'm doing my part in furthering the Lord's work. I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true.
