Hi I'm Meagan

I grew up on a farm in Idaho. I love reading Sherlock Holmes stories with a big bowl of popcorn. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

One of my favorite things is being inside with my children during a snowstorm with a pot of soup on the stove. I love being a stay-at-home mom. I have three daughters and a son. I love reading to my kiddoes and going for walks with them. I enjoy learning about parenting through books, friends and my own mistakes! I am trying to learn to garden; my trees are thriving but my green thumb is still clumsy with the smaller stuff. My family enjoys camping and hiking and we are getting into a little stargazing!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS faith, so my knowledge of it grew as I did. The best way to explain why I am a Mormon today is the scripture in Mathew that states: "Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." This church has brought me happiness and I see all the good that it does in the world. I like who I am when I am living the teachings of my church; I feel closer to my Savior and I am a better wife, mother and friend. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I am grateful for this companion to the Bible that brings me peace through its witness of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I plan activities for girls in our church (and the friends they bring-anyone is welcome) that are ages eight to eleven. We meet a few times a month. Some things we have enjoyed doing are painting flowerpots for the girls' mothers, making scrapbooks, and they are excited to visit an elderly home. I have also helped organize service needs: arranging meals for families when there is illness and helping people when they move. I have also taught lessons to young children at church. I live my faith by trying to be who the Savior wants me to be; trying to do a little better each day.
