Hi I'm Meghan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 24 years old. I've been married for almost three years, and am a proud new mama. I love to meet and talk with people. I love to read good books and write fiction and nonfiction. I love food, travel, and taking pictures. I feel blessed to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!

Why I am a Mormon

I was adopted from Korea when I was just 16 months old. My adoptive mom is a convert to the Church, and my brother and I were baptized when we turned eight. Throughout struggles in my life -the divorce of my parents, personal sins and weaknesses, and even inactivity in Church - I never stopped believing in God, and I know he never stopped believing in me. After about 7 years of going to church on and off, I decided to live the standards and attend church once and for all. This decision and my commitment to God has made all the difference in my life. I know that Heavenly Father had a plan for me. He took me as an orphan in Korea and placed me in a family that provided a way to his gospel. Every good thing in my life -my eternal family and lasting, meaningful friendships- has come from my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and commitment to His gospel. Time and time again I've had personal experiences that have witnessed to me that God knows who His children are personally and that he loves us. I know that the gospel's teachings are true, and I love being a member of Jesus Christ's church!

How I live my faith

I try to see everyone I meet as a child of God and treat them that way. Every Sunday my husband and I get to teach five- and six-year-olds about Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and their gospel as part of a Church program called Primary. We love working with the children because they teach us so much about faith, love, obedience, and humility. I also make special visits with other members of the Church as part of a program called Visiting Teaching. We fellowship with other women outside of church on a monthly basis. We visit in their homes and talk, share uplifting gospel messages (and sometimes treats) and make sure everyone knows they are loved and taken care of.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that families can be together forever. With the right authority, families can be together even after this life, even when separated by death. We believe that the family is a God-created institution. We believe that the family is the foundation for true happiness, and that the success of the family is directly related to the success of society.   Show more Show less
