Hi I'm Meghan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife and mother of one son. I graduated from college and worked as a parent educator for a teen parent homeless shelter. Once my son was born, I was blessed to stay at home, but I still take him with me to teach community groups on parenting. I love baking, rearranging furniture, reading nonfiction and shopping with my mom.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the LDS faith because it has brought me closer to God and Jesus Christ. My faith brings me peace and helps me find joy every day. My husband and I have been married in the temple which means we can be together forever. Sometimes I think I will just burst with happiness in knowing God has a plan for me.

How I live my faith

In our home my husband and I have family scripture study and prayer so we can learn more about Jesus Christ and the gospel. We have weekly family home evenings. Because our son is still little we usually sing lots of silly songs, make a fun treat and share a short lesson for our family night. During the days I visit women from church. Some need a friend, dinner or a ride to the doctor, but usually we just visit and discuss our families and the gospel. I also work with the young women in our church. I teach lessons on Sunday about how to live the gospel and help the young women plan activities for our mid-week activity night. They like cooking, camping, and sports so I try to plan lots of those.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

The Mormon church was founded by the prophet, Joseph Smith. When Joseph Smith was a young man he prayed to know which church to join. While he prayed, God the Father and Jesus Christ appeared to him. They told him to join none of the churches. Over the next few years, the Church was restored through Joseph Smith. We believe The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Christ's church restored. We have prophets, apostles, revelation and the priesthood the same as Jesus Christ's church when He was on the earth. Show more Show less

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

A husband and wife can be together forever. God's plan is for His children to live in families, now and throughout eternity. We can be sealed in the temple as families. Show more Show less
