Hi I'm Megan

I am a loving wife, a Disney fanatic, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am recently married. I got married in the Orlando LDS Temple in October of 2012. I love to attend the Temple as often as I can with my husband. I love to have girl nights with all of my friends. My husband is currently teaching me how to long board (skate boarding), and has bought me a ukulele. I love to go to Disney World, I worked there while my husband served his mission in Nevada. If I can't get to the park I watch as many Disney movies as possible. I do not get motion sickness at all, I can go on any roller coaster, and enjoy every second of it. The faster it is and the more it spins the better! I love having a good time with good people. I am best friends with my mom, she has always been there for me, even while I was not the best daughter. I am so grateful for her. I hope that one day I have the chance to be as good of a mother as she is. I am consistently changing, I want to become the person I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my entire life, but I did have to learn for myself the truth of the gospel. My senior year of High School was very difficult for me as I fell away from the church. I chose to listen to my friends instead of my family. My testimony wasn't strong enough at that time for me to understand how bad my decisions were, and how they effected my spirituality. After some friends of mine where in a car accident that took their lives I realized that life is too short to throw it away. I gradually started go to church again. I made new friends that helped me make good choices instead of bad ones. The more I went to church and prayed for guidance, the happier I became. I am happy to say that I gained my own testimony by searching the scriptures for answers to my questions, and praying to my Heavenly Father. I know without a doubt that this is where I should be. I am grateful to be apart of such an exciting and true church. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me. I know that Joseph Smith prayed in a grow of trees and saw God the Father and Jesus Christ. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, the messages in it are the words of God. I am grateful for President Monson, his counselors, and all leaders in the church today. I am beyond happy that my husband took me to the temple to be sealed to him for time and all eternity. The blessings received in the Temple are true and precious. I know that this church is true. I love my Savior and I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in my ward as the secretary of the women's group, called Relief Society. I help any sisters in need. I love to cook for families that need meals, and the missionaries. The feeling you get after you serve those in need is so amazing. I love having the opportunity to share my testimony with those around me. I try everyday to be the best example to others as possible. I hope others can see through me, the true love that the gospel gives. I feel so blessed everyday. My faith is something I hold very dear to me, I am consistently having to stick up for my beliefs. Even if it is as simple as refusing a coffee or glass of wine, I know that is a sacrifice that is worth eternal life. I know there is a reason for all the modern revelation we receive from the Prophets today. I love being a Mormon, everyday.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

I believe the roles of the husband and wife are the most important roles you have in life. The husband is the provider, not necessarily with money, but for safety and examples. I feel the Husband needs to be a man that puts God first. If a man has God first and he wife second,before his own needs, everything else will fall into place. Likewise, the wife must also put God and her husband before herself. I know that in my marriage, things are at its best when we both have the right priorities. When we focus on our Lord and Savior, we have the ability to compromise, and communicate in a calm and loving way. When our focus is on ourselves, everything is in dismay. While I am not yet a parent, I believe the father and mother should have equal responsibilities. Both parents are there to love, nurture, and teach their children. The roles of husbands and wives are not so different from each other. Each need to place the Lord and their spouses needs before their own. They both, as they become parents, should try their best to work together to love, nurture, and teach the children. Show more Show less
