Hi I'm Meg

I'm a wife, a mom, and a homemaker. I'm a non-practicing attorney. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Japan and raised in California. I studied Japanese at CSU Long Beach, then served a mission in Guatemala. I went to law school at BYU, and while there I met and married my wonderful husband. Now I am an inactive member of the California Bar and I stay home full-time with our three bouncing boys. I love reading, crafting clumsily, working on our fixer-upper house, and my callings as a ward missionary and nursery assistant at church.

Why I am a Mormon

I never had one single experience that convinced me that I should be part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My testimony is the accumulation of countless experiences throughout my lifetime. I have seen time after time how much happier I am when I keep the commandments and do the things I have been taught to do in the church. I have felt the Holy Ghost testify of truths that I have heard or studied out, guide me in my decisions, prompt me to reach out to others, and comfort me in difficult times. Through the Spirit I know that Christ came to Earth, suffered, and died for me, then rose from the tomb. I know that he sends prophets to testify of Him and guide His people. And when I follow that Spirit, I feel joy and peace in my life and feel that God forgives me for my sins and mistakes and will help me to come home to Him. That knowledge brings so much peace and direction to my life; I can't imagine life without it!

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving in my area as a Ward Missionary. I visit with members who have joined the Church recently and teach them more about the Gospel, and also work to help and encourage everyone to come and participate and be part of our church family. I think the greatest way I live my faith is in the work I do in my own family. With my husband, we try to teach our children truth and honor and work. We read together and pray together and take care of each other and always try to do better today than we did yesterday.
