Hi I'm Megan.

I'm twenty-five years old, a college grad and the mother of soon to be two. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stay-at-home mom with a two-and-a-half year old son and a daughter due to make an appearance any day now. I also manage to fit in some piano/organ teaching and occasional cake decorating. I graduated with my BA in English and still love the chance to escape with a good book. But my favorite thing to do is to spend time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed with the chance to grow up as a Mormon. I don't have a specific instance I can point to and say, 'That's it. That's when I knew it was true.' My testimony is the product of a thousand little instances that have confirmed (and reconfirmed) that the Gospel is true. I know that the joy and peace that are so abundant in my life have come from following the Savior and trying to live his Gospel.

How I live my faith

As a mom, I feel like my biggest job is to teach my son (and our other children, as they join us) about the Gospel. I try to make sure I take time to read the scriptures and pray every day so that I can be guided to know how to help him understand about Heavenly Father and Jesus. At this point I'm lucky to get him to fold his arms for the prayer, but hopefully one day he'll gain his own testimony based on things I tried to teach him. Outside our home, I've had the chance to work with the youth in our church and now with the young children. These kids are amazing, but they need all the support they can get from good people around them. I feel like if they can gain a testimony when they are young then they will be able to make wiser decisions during the years when so many of their peers are struggling. I was supported by great parents and leaders when I was young--I hope I can do the same for the kids I work with now.
