Hi I'm Megan

I am a new mom. My favorite thing to do is travel and see new exciting places. I love to read, cook, and run. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I completed a public health degree just a few short years ago. A month later I married a great guy back at home and we live close to most of our family. I was a Pilates instructor until our first child came along, and then I chose to stay home with her. I still enjoy running, and being outdoors. I have just one child at the moment, but she fills our lives with so much joy. I love to travel, and one of the best trips I've done is going to Peru to see, help, and learn about the culture there.

Why I am a Mormon

It's simple and heard many times, but I am a Mormon because I know that the teachings and principles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are true. I know that they bring joy and happiness, which is what our Father in Heaven wants for us. The ultimate goal of the gospel is happiness, which is promised if we follow what God wants us to do. The gospel is based on Jesus Christ. I feel comforted that what I learn in church each Sunday is the same principles that Christ taught when he was on the Earth.

How I live my faith

Right after I got married, I had the privilege of working side by side with many of the teenage girls in our area. I watched them grow, learn, struggle, and mature as I taught them principles of the gospel and truly enjoyed the time I had to spend with them. Now I play the piano as young children learn songs about Christ.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Many prophets existed in ancient times. During the apostasy, the gospel of Jesus Christ was lost. Joseph Smith restored the gospel in the 1800's and was given the power to speak for God to those on Earth. That power has been passed through each prophet since then and is held by Thomas S. Monson. When President Monson speaks to us, he speaks those things that God would say to us today, just as Moses did in times of old. Show more Show less
