Hi I'm Megan.

I'm a singer-songwriter, swim teacher, and property manager. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Puyallup, Washington, went to school in Utah, served a full-time mission in Germany, and have lived and worked in Utah, Arizona, and New York City. I recently moved back to Washington State to help my parents get ready to go on their own full-time mission and they are now serving in Tanzania. I have a passion for life which is apparent through the different places I have worked and lived as well as in my music. I went to school at BYU for a BFA in Music Dance Theatre. I have performed at Tuacahn Center for the Arts in Southern Utah, worked for JPMorgan Chase and Apple in New York, helped run a medical office in my home town of Puyallup, and I am single and currently work in property management and teach children how to swim. I love my family and have 16 nieces and nephews, so it's a good thing I enjoy traveling. I love to write music, to sing, and to play the piano. I'm a singer-songwriter and recently released an album on iTunes. However, until the dream of being signed by a label becomes a reality, I will continue to work diligently in whatever capacity both I and the Lord see fit.

Why I am a Mormon

I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was raised by two wonderful parents who I know - without any doubt - will love me no matter what. From my earliest memory, I have known the church was true. My parents told me I came this way and I think they may be right. Ever since I was a little girl, I feel something exciting inside every time I read or hear the stories from the scriptures about Moses and Esther and Nephi and Moroni and all of the other prophets. I currently have the opportunity to be a Sunday School teacher in a congregation of Young Single Adults and it is a privilege. I cherish the moments where we will be discussing the gospel and the spirit witnesses to me the truthfulness of what is being said. It's the same exciting feeling I've felt since I was young. I know the scriptures are real. I know the gospel is true. I know that by following the commandments we will be happy. He wants us to be happy. He wants to bless us. He knows each of us by name. He knows me by name. I know that if I make a mistake (and I WILL make mistakes), He will continue to love me so much more than I could ever imagine - no matter what.

How I live my faith

Since I have moved back to the Seattle area, I am a Sunday School teacher in my Young Single Adult branch and I absolutely love it! One wonderful thing about how the church is organized is that we have a church-wide Sunday School curriculum. We all study from the same manuals and for the most part have the same lessons on the same Sundays. But another wonderful thing is that even so, every lesson will be different because the people there are different. I love studying the lessons beforehand and really trying to follow the guidance of the spirit in sharing what needs to be said so that the individuals in my class can possibly hear things they've heard for years in a new light and that every person will get a message that is unique to them. Maybe it's because of my calling as a Sunday School teacher that I now find my everyday conversations with people who are not members of my faith tend to circle back to gospel fundamentals. People often try to pinpoint what is different about me or why I seem happy and wholesome. They are usually pretty satisfied when I say, "Well, I'm a Mormon."
