Hi I'm Megan

I find faith in my daily life and trials. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay at home wife and mommy. I have my Occupational Therapy license and practice in the area of geriatrics. I enjoy crafty things, gardening, food storage and preservation, and seeing the sparkel in my children's eyes when they learn something. I was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My true conversion started in my youth with programs like EFY and Young Women and was solidified when I entered the temple. My faith was recently tested when I was diagnosed with Melanoma in my 30s.

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought up in the church. Baptized when I was eight and truly converted when I was in my 20s. I attended every church function and my parents were usually the leaders of those functions, but it took me leaving home and being on my own to understand WHY I wanted to be active in church. Meeting my husband helped even further with that. I think it's important to have a partner that supports you. I know that "church" doesn't just happen on Sunday, it is a constant state of mind. I try to live in accordance with the principals of peace, kindness, love, and I'm working on charity. I want my family to be together forever. I know that Jesus is my Savior and Brother and I rejoice in the day that I will be able to see Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily in my home as a mother. I take this calling seriously. With the conception of my second child, my husband and I decided that I would stop working and stay at home to raise our children. This was not a difficult decision spiritually, but wasn't so easy (and still isn't) financially. I teach my children about Christ and Heavenly Father, about the scriptures, how to pray, and how to make good choices. I also live my faith in the way I treat others and in the way I treat myself. I try to be kind and understanding. I do not put harmful things in or do harmful things to my body.
