Hi I'm Megan

Howdy y'all! I'm living the dream of being a missionary for Jesus Christ in San Antonio, Texas, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love life! There is so much about life to explore, discover, create, and experience. And those are all the things that I love to do. I love discovering and creating new things, but I also love returning to the experiences that I have already grown to love. I grew up in a family of 5 kids, me being the middle child. I have 2 older brothers and a younger sister and brother. My dad was in the Air Force my whole life, and although we never lived overseas, we did move around a lot. Moving brought our family close together, and we learned to rely on each other and look out for one another. I'm grateful for the close relationships we still have today. After graduating high school I went to 2 semesters of college. After that I decided to go to cosmetology school and graduated from a nail technology program. I am currently serving an 18 month mission in the Texas San Antonio Mission. I LOVE TEXAS! and it has been the best time of my life! I never knew how much joy that could come from serving my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents taught me from a very young age who Jesus Christ is, and how much my Heavenly Father loves me. They showed me by example how to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They taught me how to pray and find out the truth for myself. I went through my life all the way through high school trusting and believing in the things my parents had taught. When I moved away for the first time, I started to doubt the things I believed in. I was confronted by a lot of different people who questioned my beliefs, and it was then that I realized I didn't have the strong testimony that I thought I had. I didn't know why I was a Mormon. I felt confused and unhappy with my life. I wanted a sure conviction like everyone else that the Church of Jesus Christ was true. Because my parents had taught me to trust in the Lord, and to rely on Him for answers, I knew that I could pray and ask Heavenly Father if what I had been taught was true. If He was actually there, if He would answer my prayer. As I prayed, for the first time in my life that I can remember, I felt the peace that the Gospel of Jesus Christ offers. I felt a conviction of truth. It was almost like a blanket of warmth and comfort washing over me, and I knew that I had to do my part. I had to do those things and be in those places that would allow the Spirit of Christ to lead and direct my life. That meant changing my life by growing closer to the Savior. I started on my journey towards learning the truth for myself. As I sincerely sought to understand who the Savior is, and what role He plays in my life, I felt happier. I felt truth and a sure knowledge that I know Heavenly Father loves me, and that He cares about me. I know He loves all of His children, and that He does hear and answer our prayers.

How I live my faith

Well, right now in my life I am serving a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I received a letter telling me I was called to serve in the Texas San Antonio Mission in July of 2010. The feelings I had as I read that letter are hard to forget. I was nervous, I was a little scared. But I was sure that I had been called by a prophet of God to proclaim His Gospel to the people in Texas. I love being a missionary. The experiences that I have had as a missionary are almost unreal. I feel the happiest I've been in my whole life. Although this is the hardest thing I've ever done; leaving my friends, job, school, and family to talk to people I've never met before about God-- it is SO worth it! Seeing the change come into people's lives as they begin to understand their divine identity and purpose reminds me of how much God truly loves us as His children. He cares about us, and He wants us to know He's there. Seek Him earnestly in prayer, and you will find answers to your questions. Promise.
