Hi I'm Megan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy my interests in running marathons and competing in triathlons. I am currently learning to play the organ and have a goal to practise 1 hr/day/5xweek so I can improve. It is fun to set goals and to see what I can accomplish! Most important, I find the responsibilities of being a wife and mother of 4 very rewarding and fulfilling. I'm a pretty ordinary person you would see walking on the street-and I am a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I grew up in the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My parents taught me to always say my prayers and read scriptures as a family and individually. I am so thankful my parents taught me how they thought the best way to live is, and now I have the knowledge of those things and can decide for myself if I want to live this way, or not. I now CHOOSE to live the LDS teachings not because I'm BLIND to other ways, but because I SEE how much it has blessed my life! It's not easy growing up in this world, but I can see that living the principles of this gospel really HELPS me in my decisions. The LDS standards have made it EASIER to live in the world because I am not restricted by some of the worldly habits of smoking, drinking, swearing etc. The gospel has given me so many opportunities to grow and learn about myself. I can't imagine going through my day without asking Heavenly Father to help me in the things I am involved in each day. I know I am being watched over by a Father in Heaven who knows what's best for me. I know that He helps me in my little daily schedule-whether it be the fun things I do in running marathons or triathlons or the important things I do in being a wife and a mother.

How I live my faith

I have had a rule in place for myself for many years now. It usually takes me 30-45 min. to get myself 'physically' ready for my day so I figure I owe it to myself to get myself 'spiritually' ready for the day. I like to spend 10 min. praying, 10 min. reading scriptures, and then 10 min. to write down my thoughts I've had as I've read & prayed. Writing something down is key for me in receiving thoughts and impressions that I can carry with me throughout the day. I can go longer than 30 min. total and I often do, but that is the minimum. If, at the end of the day, I haven't read my scriptures yet, I’ve learned long ago that I am tired at 1am getting to bed without reading, or 1:10am and having read at least some scriptures... So I figure, I might as well just do it and I can at least go to bed feeling good-tired that I did the right thing! In my prayers each morning, I like to go over my day with Heavenly Father. This way, I feel I can be helped and guided in what I've chosen to do that day and have his blessing. I can then adjust my schedule as I feel prompted to do so.
