Hi I'm Regan

I write inspirational fiction for youth. I believe in true love. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a self-published author with a dream to inspire youth to become their very best. I love Shakespeare, acting, directing, reading, and watching. I adore my beloved husband, who continues to prove that there is a happily-ever-after. I love my God. Not a day goes by that I amazed at the many blessings He bestows upon His children. He is my Father in Heaven and I eagerly seek His constant presence, for without Him I am nothing.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in Jesus Christ, our Heavenly Father, and the Holy Ghost. I know that God will never leave His children to live here on earth without the ability to gain direct access to Him. I know that Joseph Smith is the Prophet of the Restoration and that Thomas S. Monson is our living prophet today. I know that families are meant to last throughout eternity and Heavenly Father has provided a way for that to be possible through the proper authority, passed down from Christ Himself to worthy men who honor their covenants and keep His commandments. I hold these things to be sacred truths, available to all God's children who are willing to listen to His Spirit, who bears record of truth. To these things I bear witness in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

Unfortunately, my husband and I have not lived somewhere long enough to receive callings, but that doesn't stop us from creating an atmosphere in our home that remains focused on our Heavenly Father. We pray before each meal and before bed, we read the scriptures together and privately, we attend Church meetings wherever we are, we constantly acknowledge the blessings God has bestowed that day and we get VERY excited for General Conference, when those of our faith around the world gather to hear the word of our prophet and apostles, the leaders of our church who speak for God today. Also, as often as we can, we go to the temple to renew our souls and remind ourselves of the sacred covenants we made with God.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

The women that I have met throughout my lifetime of membership in the Church have been warm, enlightening, seeking out opportunities to assist others, and faithful in teaching their children the Word of God. They teach classes, lead the young women of our Church, and instruct the little ones as they get to know our Savior, Jesus Christ. We absolutely believe in the equality of men and women! There is certainly a difference in responsibilities of each. In a document published by one of our prophets in 1995 entitled "The Family A Proclamation to the World," it says that "By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners." Show more Show less
