Hi I'm Megan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Atlanta, Georgia where my husband is getting his PhD. I worked for a few years in advertising but after I had my son I changed careers from a Media Buyer to a stay at home mom to take care of my son who is now 18 months. I love volleyball, reading, family history and crafting. Life is good but the tides of change are approaching as my husband nears graduation.

Why I am a Mormon

Mormonism has always given me direction when the world around me seems lost. My religion has been my anchor and I have felt that what has been taught to me are truths and not just good messages to live by. It's this feeling of being filled that has kept me close to my religion and beliefs in Jesus Christs as my Savior. I've had moments in life where I've felt something I would describe as glimpses of heaven. These moments of love and peace continually strengthen what I believe and stand for.

How I live my faith

I think I live my faith by continually trying to improve upon myself. This could be directly involved in my church or things I do personally. For church I'm called as a Compassionate Service Leader. This means I organize and mobilize women in our church to help those who are in need of help. We try to make sure we can add comfort in times of trial and difficulty. I also serve as a visiting teacher which means I am assigned several women to visit each month to check up how they are doing and share a spiritual message with them. I've always loved doing this (even though it can be challenging to coordinate schedules) because I've gotten to know women I may never have become close to had I not served in this way. On a day to day basis I live my faith in ways I don't even recognize because they are second nature. I read my scriptures for a half an hour each day with a pen and paper to take notes. I pray on my own and with my family. On Monday nights we attempt to have a family night where we teach a lesson, play a game and eat a treat. My husband and I refrain from movies, TV shows, magazines, music, and books we don't find appropriate with our beliefs. We don't drink alcohol, coffee, tea and try to live within our means. I enjoy family history work which is important to our faith because we believe families can be united and live forever. We pay 10% of our earnings as tithe to our church. I'm a goal maker and like to set goals to improve my knowledge, health, faith, and family and I think all these things are expressions of my belief that I am a child of God and I have worth. I think someone not of my faith looking into my life might find it a bit strange or maybe old fashion but my lifestyle gives me happiness and I'm grateful to have my faith to guide me. It's not always easy or exciting and I am far from perfect but striving to know and grow closer to Jesus Christ gives me more strength than anything else I know.
