Hi I'm Meg

Born and raised in Utah, I live for freedom and self expression. I'm in love with art and music... and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a few simple mission statements in life: Continually strive for excellence, utilize my talents, and always be the ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. I go to high school and something that truly makes my day so much better is making OTHER people's so much better. I really do believe in charity and the Pure Love of Christ, and using that God-given gift in my everyday activities is a necessity for me. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. I love being around children... it reminds me of my days as a kid and how beautifully innocent they were. If someone were to ask me what I couldn't live without... it would be art. At any moment, at high noon or in the long tired hours of the evening, you could find me conjuring up my next project or blissfully sketching away. I recall a talk given by Elder Uchtdorf about the topic of Creating... (in fact it happens to be my favorite...) I seem to base my whole life around those words. He says "you don't need a pen or brush to create..." but, that's what I prefer :) !! I love life and fun and being around the people I love. I love the Gospel and my Heavenly Father, who constantly reminds me by the simple beauty of a particular sunrise, or color of the autumn leaves... that he truly loves me. He wants me to be happy. He wants ALL of us to be happy. It's our choice though, and everyday I try my best to be well on my way back to him.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Well that's simple. Why WOULDN'T I be a mormon?? It's a win win for everybody!! I receive eternal life, exaltation, the true gospel, unlimited happiness, countless blessings every moment of my life, an eternal family, a goal to work towards, hope for the seemingly forever-away future... and many other extraordinary gifts. God receives the comfort that I'm at least on the right path back to my rightful place in the heavens standing next to him. I do not have a conversion story. I've never fallen away and had the intense faith to come back... but I've had my trials, and I've had my ups and downs... but all's well that end's with Heavenly Father's plan in heart and mind. Nobody's perfect my friend, and that's the precise reason that Our Savior performed the Atonement. Isn't it selfish to NOT use that resource? It's like having the most beautiful and sacred gift, wrapped in golden paper, handed to you on a silver diamond-studded platter... and then throwing it to the dirt. Take this gift. Use it. Embrace it. Forgive yourself, repent as needed, and always remember that God will love you no matter what. That's what I keep on telling myself... because It's true. That's all I have to say about that. It's true. Every word of the Book of Mormon. Every word spoken in General Conference. All we have to do is have faith.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following Christ's example and being a light unto the world... shining brightly to those lost in the darkness of life. I strive to do 10 kind things a day to either people I've known for my whole life or complete strangers... it doesn't really matter to me, I mean... we're all brothers and sisters, correct?? We probably hung out all the time in heaven, so why wouldn't we be best buds down here on good ol' earth?? That's my motto... Doesn't matter who or where or when, life is about living and sharing the gospel, loving your fellow people, and showing that love by service and smiles and kind words. That's what it's all about my friend. And that's all I have to say about that.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?
