Hi I'm Megan Wright

I'm a historian, an MBA and business owner, an adoption advocate, a gardener, and a knitter. I'm a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am, first and foremost, a mom of two adorable boys! One is a miracle of birth and the other a miracle of adoption. And I'm a wife. I have a Masters Degree in Business, but I have chosen to be the stay-at-home parent in our family. It isn't an easy thing for me to do, and I know it's not for everyone, but my children are the most precious gift I've even been given. If ever there was a task I wanted done right, (well at least right for our family) this is it. To maintain my sanity I do run a small business out of our garage painting and refinishing furniture and occasionally participating in vintage shows as a vendor. I have developed a love for urban homesteading, and have found a lot of joy in increasing our family's self-sufficiency. I love to preserve food and have tried my hand at growing micro-greens (different varieties of sprouts.) We have raised chickens and hope to do so again, and we participate in an urban community garden. I am also a fiber artist, which is a family tradition and a life long passion. I dye, spin, knit and design knitwear. Take the raw wool from a sheep and working with it through each process and each step until you have a pair of wool socks or a shawl is an amazing adventure. I was raised in Utah, but I was not raised LDS. I joined the church when I was 16 and it has blessed every aspect of my life since that time.

Why I am a Mormon

I investigated the LDS Church during a time of great turmoil in my family. I was a teenager searching for security. I was drawn to the doctrine of eternal families. I knew in my heart that families were sacred and ordained of God. Learning that a marriage did not have to be 'until death do you part' and that parents could be eternally tied to their children was like the sun parting dark storm clouds in my soul. I knew that if you were eternally bound to your spouse and your children, you would be able to look beyond the day to day struggles of marriage and parenthood in this life and make choices to preserve and cherish those relationships. The day I was married and sealed to my husband for "time and all eternity" was the most moving day of my life. I no longer felt alone in my journey. While our marriage is far from perfect, and we have had some terrible struggles, we are able to lift our sometimes exhausted eyes to the future of eternity and know that the here-and-now is not all that we have. Living in a Christ centered marriage and raising our children to love Christ is also an incredible experience. I was raised agnostic. We didn't look to Christ as our example and our arbitrator. I am terribly grateful for the guidance of our Savior and his teachings as we navigate and nurture our most important relationships.

How I live my faith

I serve in the church helping others discover their family histories and genealogy. It is and exciting and rewarding job. I love it!

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

The Bible is a beautiful book that teaches us about our Savior and of his pre-mortal and mortal ministries. It testifies of him and we draw closer to him as we read it. Show more Show less
