Hi I'm Meggin

I'm a mother of two boys. I'm an avid reader. I'm a runner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college graduate and former fifth grade teacher. I am now married to my Prince Charming, and am the mother of two small boys. We love singing, playing sports together, and going for walks as a family. I also love to run. I have completed two half marathons and many 5- and 10K races. In addition, I love to play tennis and softball. I also enjoy reading and baking.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, and never really doubted the things I was taught from my youth. When I began my freshman year of high school at age 14 though, I quickly realized that I needed to know for myself with a surety if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was, in fact, true. I prayed to know whether the Book of Mormon was the word of God, whether Joseph Smith restored the gospel in its fullness to the earth, and whether the prophet today speaks the will of the Lord. I was answered with a sweet, calm, reassuring feeling that these things were true. Since that time, I have had countless witnesses from the Spirit to confirm the truth of these things.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith every day of my life. I live my faith by being honest, by abstaining from substances that will harm my body, and by trying to treat others the way the Savior would have me do. In my ward, I have the opportunity to teach the 3-and-4 year old children. I also get to serve as the volleyball coach for our teenage youth. I love working with the youth!

Why is family so important to Mormons?

We believe that the family is the fundamental unit of society, therefore strong families will naturally create strong communities. We also believe that family associations may continue forever, so we strive to develop family relationships that we want to continue. Show more Show less
