Hi I'm Megan

I use cloth diapers. I homeschool. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a busy young mother with a growing little family! My wonderful husband and I were married in an LDS temple eight years ago. Together we have two preschoolers and an infant that I am blessed to stay home with. Keeping up with all the laundry, answering every question, playing and enjoying the wonders of childhood with them, while finding time to spend on my marriage keeps me super busy! I love to cloth diaper because I hate to spend money on something that just gets thrown away. I firmly believe that my children will learn the most and the best from me, so I try my hardest to slow down and teach and show my children what it is I do everyday, in and out of the house. I also cherish being a part of the LDS church, and know that my life and my children's lives are enriched by being part of a community of people that are honestly trying their best to follow Christ's example in their daily lives. I am blessed to learn and serve in my local congregation, and to show my children how to do that through my example. In my pre-mommy years, I completed a bachelor's degree in psychology with a minor in Spanish. I eventually hope to go on to a master's program in marriage and family therapy when I'm done with my current phase of life. My passion is to help my own family, and by extension, other families, be able to truly enjoy being together! When I do find some time to put on a hat that's not "mommy", I like to ride my bike, spend time with friends, read, knit, hike, or talk about the latest thing I'm learning about life!

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed with parents who taught me about the gospel from my infancy. When I was 13, however, I began to question the things I had always been taught. It seemed to me that there had been a lot of very challenging events already in my short life that I felt were so ugly and devastating that I could not possibly see how the things I had been taught about God and Christ could be true given the things I had experienced. A part of me couldn't understand how God could allow terrible things to happen to his children, and at the same time actually love them. I asked myself how it could be possible that God would allow others to hurt me and my family, and still be the loving Father in Heaven I had been taught he was. Why didn't he rescue me when I needed him to? Those answers were to come later as I studied and prayed for understanding. But on that night at 13, as I was searching the scriptures late at night in my room, and crying out in my heart, I asked "God, if you love me, will you show me?" I will never forget my answer. Even before I had finished asking that question, a great flood of warmth felt as though it was being poured over my head. It flowed down my neck, into my arms, and filled my whole body. I cried out in joy and relief as I felt the overwhelming sensation of love and comfort fill my mind, heart and body. I knew that God loved me. As I have continued to come to Him, to His gospel, and to His words, I have been taught over and over again exactly what this life is about, and how it is that He has designed things on this earth to teach me how to truly find joy and happiness. Every time I have a new doubt or a new question, again and again I receive the same answer as I study and pray about it This is Christ's true church. He is in charge of it, and it is the source of all truth.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving the young women ages 12-18 in my ward. I get to participate and have fun with them during the week in our mid-week activities Mutual, and on Sundays I get the chance to take a turn teaching a lesson during our meetings.
