Hi I'm Megan

I'm a wife, mother of 4 adorable and amazing children, a seamstress, a child care provider, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for almost 12 years to a wonderful husband and father. I have 4 amazing and wonderful kids (2 girls and 2 boys). I run an in-home child care and I also have an alteration business that I run out of my home. I love playing with my kids, sewing, doing crafts and reading.

Why I am a Mormon

I live the gospel and standards of the church because I know them, with all my heart and soul, to be true. I want my children to grow up in a righteous home where they can always feel safe and loved regardless of what they witness in the outside world. Jesus Christ has asked one thing of us; "If ye love me, keep my commandments." (John 14:15) That is what I strive to do and to teach my children to do. Our children are the future of this country and the world and we need them to be raised well and raised to be good people. I know without a doubt that I belong to the true church of our Lord and Savior.

How I live my faith

I go to church on Sunday. I am blessed to have two church callings which gives me the opportunity to serve the other women in my ward and the Young Women in my ward. One of my callings is to plan the activities throughout the year for the women to get together and learn something new or just to get to know each other better. My other calling is to plan out the Girls Camp for the young women. I also serve and live my faith by being a Visiting Teacher to three women. I visit them each month and bring a lesson or message to share and check to make sure their needs are being met.

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

To help those in need and to help provide a way for those individuals and/or families to get back on their feet. I have actually been on the recieving end of the welfare services of the church and I don't know where our family would have been without the love and support of the church. Our Bishop was there for us to guide and counsel us. Our Relief Society President was there, filling out food orders so that we didn't have to worry how we would feed our children and where our next meal would come from. We all have trials we are going through that test us, but I don't believe that our Heavenly Father wants those trials to cause you to have a broken spirit and if you don't get the love and support you need it can very easily cause a broken spirit. Our Church and the welfare services is the love and support that many need in their time of crisis. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

We believe in Joseph Smith and are grateful and thankful to him for restoring the gospel to the earth, but we do not "worship" him. We worship our Heavenly Father and we worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
