Hi I'm Meghan

I'm a mom. I'm a book-worm. I love to exercise. I'm a college graduate and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read, exercise, go to the beach, camp, spend time with my wonderful husband, play with my dogs and play the piano. I just graduated from a local university with a bachelor's degree in Exercise and Wellness and it is the best degree out there! I hope to obtain my master's degree someday as well! My husband and I have been married for over 4 years now and just had our first baby--Jack! I wanted to finish school before a child came along and I did it and know I'll never regret it! I love having this kid in my life. I was never a "kid person" to begin with but I had faith that having kids was the right thing to do and boy I'm glad I did! Jack brings me so much happiness and he makes each day a little brighter. I love the little guy. I love history and traveling and learning about new cultures. I would go to school for the rest of my life if I could. In fact, I think I might!

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I suppose like many Mormons, I was born into the religion and growing up, that's why I thought I was Mormon but the older I got, the more I realized I was Mormon because I wanted to be. My parents established early on that I was not forced to go to church or to follow the LDS religion and that it was up to me. However, the gospel made me happy and I had no reason NOT to be Mormon. Now that I'm a bit older and away from home, I am a Mormon because I love it and nothing in the world could make me happier. I'm sure it's been said by many individuals but I simply cannot imagine my life without the gospel in it. I have never known a life without the gospel but I would never want to. I contribute all my happiness and joy in this life to being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is what gives my life meaning each day and what keeps me going during the difficult times. During those difficult times I try to imagine what people do who don't have the gospel in their lives and how they get through it without knowing they are the child of a loving Father and that anything can be overcome.

How I live my faith

I help plan activities for the women. It is great to help the women get together to enjoy one another's company and to be spiritually uplifted. I live my faith by trying to be a righteous example to all who are around me.
