Hi I'm Megan.

I am a student at ASU studying Communications. I'm married to the sweetest boy ever. I work in a trailer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After over a year of dating, including months of long-distance while I attended a different university and struggled to make the biggest decision of my life, I finally decided to marry the tall, dark, handsome hunk of a man that I love. This decision was one of the most serious, important decisions I will ever make in my life, especially because as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ, I believe that my marriage is FOR-EV-ER. We were married this summer. With this choice came many other changes such as a new school, a new job, a new house, and a new roommate. From BYU to Arizona State University. From a part-time, student job, to a full-time job working in a trailer on a construction site. From an a apartment full of girls, to a town-house with just me and the man. It's definitely very different and it is taking me some time to adjust. However, I am so grateful that me and that handsome, sweet boy are now stuck together forever. He makes me so happy and together we can continually progress.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a conviction that the gospel of Jesus Christ is the way back to Heavenly Father. Through much prayer and gospel study, I have developed a relationship with my Heavenly Father and desire to live with Him again. I know that I am imperfect, but as I do my best to continually repent and try again to keep the commandments, Christ can change me and through Him, I can live with Heavenly Father again. I grew up a member of this church and have always thought that it is true, but I remember coming to a point in my life in my late teens where I questioned if all that I always believed was really true. I continued to try my best to live the gospel and waited for the light to come. And it did come. And I really believe that the gospel is the key to our happiness and I want to be happy like God is.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be an example of a follower of Christ at work and in my church calling. At work, I am one of the only active members of the LDS faith. I always try to talk openly about the church and my belief and love of the gospel truths. I try to be helpful and kind to others, as well as be an honest and hardworking employee, speak politely and to boost others up when they are feeling stressed, overwhelmed or sad. In my ward, I was called to be the ward pianist. Typically, in the area I live, there is someone to play the organ. But because I don't play the organ and they really needed someone to play the hymns for the congregation each Sunday, I was asked to play the piano. Every Sunday, I am extremely nervous to play the hymns for the congregation. I am afraid of messing up in front of people and have an irrational fear that one day, I will forget how to read the notes right in the middle of the hymn and ruin it. But, each Sunday as I sit at the piano bench playing the hymns for the ward, I try to imagine myself walking on the water towards Jesus, as Peter did many, many years ago. I put my faith and trust in the Savior, and miraculously, I make it through each hymn without too many mistakes. I know that I am really helping my ward to feel the Spirit each Sunday as I play the hymns for them.
