Hi I'm Morgan

I'm a wife and mother to be. I'm a nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 22 years old and have been married and sealed for time and all eternity since February 6th, 2010 to a wonderful man. We had our son in October 2012 and are so blessed to be his parents. I graduated with a bilingual Bachelor of Science in Nursing and work as a neurosurgical nurse at the University of Alberta Hospital. In my spare time I love to run, play the piano, read, spend time with my husband, cook and play games.

Why I am a Mormon

I was "born into the church", both of my parents were members and so naturally I grew up in the church. Some people may see this as not being able to think for themselves, or they may assume I'm doing it only because it's all I've ever known. I can tell you that both of those assumptions are false. I continue to be active in the church and follow its teachings because I have a testimony of its truthfulness. I know that through the gospel, I am able to be happy, to feel joy, in a way that others can't. I've read the Book of Mormon many times and I've prayed about it. I've received peaceful confirmation that what it teaches is true. This assurance allows me to move through life's ups and downs with courage and hope. I know that my Saviour, your Saviour, lives, and that He knows and loves each one of us perfectly. I know that as I follow in His perfect footsteps and place my faith and trust in him that I can truly be happy and be the best person I can be.

How I live my faith

The most basic, but important way I live my faith is by following its teachings to the best of my ability. I participate in personal worship daily by communicating with my Father in Heaven through prayer and studying the words of His servants through the scriptures and words of the living prophets. This is something that no one sees me do or that I get publicly rewarded for. This is something that I do because it brings me closer to my Saviour and allows me to be a better wife, mother, daughter, friend, teacher and nurse.I stand up for my beliefs and am eager to share with those who may have questions. My husband and I teach a class of younger children each Sunday about how they can draw closer to their Saviour and live the gospel every day. I also participate in church choir. Through music we are able to testify of Jesus Christ. I also support other church members in their responsibilities, take meals to members in need, participate in humanitarian activities, and feed the missionaries on a regular basis.
