Hi I'm Megan

I am a California Girl, I love to cook, watch movies, read- that's why I work at a bookstore...and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 26 years old and happily married to a wonderful man! I work at Barnes and Noble because I love (and need) free access to books! I love to read, watch movies and TV. I am not very athletic (ok...not even the slightest) but I do enjoy road biking with my hubbie. I love music and have spent many years in Choirs, and playing different musical instruments. I even learned how to conduct a Choir and love it! I believe that music is a way to express yourself in a way unlike any other. I feel like I can always find a song to describe what I am feeling or to describe my personality. I am loud, fun loving and loyal to a fault. I also enjoy anything crafty and enjoy learning new things and traveling to new places. Someday I want to have visited all the 50 states and gone to all the continents (well maybe not Antarctica... WAY to cold there!)

Why I am a Mormon

Because I see how my life has benefited from being a member.I feel like I have a forever family and feel and see how God has blessed my life because of my service in the church and my devotion to him. I grew up in the church but that was never enough for me. The church and my parents always taught me correct principles but left me to choose what was right for me and to know for myself it what they were teaching me was true. I think my moment of really deciding to be a member came when I left home for college. I realize that first Sunday morning that nobody would know if I went to church or not. Here was my chance to decide if I was going to stick with it or not. I was terrified of going to a building where I didn't know a single person. I went anyway. Every step I took on my way over I was more terrified. Then when I walked in... someone walked right up to me and asked me if they could sit with me. I felt at home. I knew that even though I was far away from my family... I always had a family with the church. I continue this day to be a faithful member. I feel the blessings of my service and how I have been able to touch others through the church. And every time I have moved, I know that I have a family in the church. I love being able to serve others and serve the Lord and being a member has given me the opportunity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in a variety of ways. The most important is how I live it when nobody is looking. Just like my decision to continue to go to church that first Sunday in college... the way I live my faith the most is in my day to day actions and decisions. I choose to abstain from drugs, alcohol, or other harmful activities. I choose to dress modestly and to live honestly. I strive to ready the scriptures and pray daily (I'm not perfect but trying to be!). I have also had the opportunity to serve in many areas of the church. Currently I work with all the children of our church. I have also lead the church choir, taught gospel study classes and also visit with women in the ward as a visiting teacher ensuring their needs are met spiritually and temporally.
