Hi I'm Meaghan

I grew up in Maryland. I like to paint and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just got back from serving a mission in San Diego, Spanish speaking. I loved it so much! It helped me come to know so much more about other people and cultures as well as God's never ending love for His children. So, right now I am going to school and studying "Art Education," which means I'm studying to be an art teacher. I love drawing, painting, and just creating something. I also love singing, playing the guitar, the cello, and the ukulele. I also like to run and walk everywhere I go.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I grew up in the church and was baptized on my eighth birthday. I do feel like each and every person’s story of conversion is a little bit different though regardless of when they joined the church. Both of my parents are converts to the church and my mom was actually baptized while she was pregnant with me. When I was in my early teen years something really stood out to me in a lesson at church. We learned that we should study and read the scriptures every day. We rarely read the scriptures together in my family, but I decided to give it a try and that principle has stayed with me ever since. I started studying the scriptures and praying for the first time. My testimony grew and expanded so much as I was immersed in the scriptures. That’s when I became truly converted to the church.

How I live my faith

I love my church meetings. They are generally with other students like me. It’s great fun. I am one of the choristers at church and get to conduct the music every Sunday. One thing I like about the church is the sense of duty and service to those around us. Everyone seems willing to help each other out. Many of us are a long ways away from home, but we treat each other like family.
