Hi I'm Megan

I'm a homeschooling mom and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I'm Megan. I am a homeschooling mom of two boys and two girls. When people hear we homeschool, they think we're into things like extreme sheltering, poor socialization and sub-par education. (insert laugh-till-you-cry emoji here) Homeschooling is pretty much the opposite of what everyone thinks! Rich educational experiences, diverse friendships and flexibility are a few of the reasons we love this beautiful way of life!

Why I am a Mormon

Although I grew up as a Latter Day Saint, I wasn't firm in my own testimony, and in my young adult years I wandered off the gospel path. During this rather selfish time in my life, I met a super awesome guy who was firm in his testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The more I talked to him, the more I yearned for that for myself. I began experimenting living the principles of the gospel and reading the Book of Mormon and guess what? I developed my own testimony and knew that I wanted to spend my life following Christ. I was excited about how happy my life had become since I turned to Chris. That super awesome guy and I were sealed in the Salt Lake temple and it was the most beautiful experience. We have been faithful, involved Latter Day Saints for over 10 years. Through every life experience, my testimony has become stronger as I turn to the Lord and His teachings to guide me. For 20 years I had the gospel in my life, but it wasn't until I decided to experiment on His words and know for myself, that my life truly changed. I gained a testimony of righteous living and have never been happier.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by improving my spirituality, teaching my children and loving and serving people wherever I go.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

The way I found out that Mormonism was true was by first, desiring to know. I saw in someone else, something I wish I had. Second, with that desire for something better, I lost the desire for the sins I was committing at the time. I began living the standards of the church fully, without any reservation. Third, I put it to the test. I read the Book of Mormon, prayed, attended church meetings and studied the Gospel. By putting in my own effort and showing I was truly willing to commit if I found out this was true, the Lord blessed me with many confirmations from the Spirit. Some of these confirmations came by way of genuine happiness in my life, peace regarding the future, confidence that I was heading in the right direction, a feeling of joy and the release of burdens. As I prayed to know if the Gospel was true, I didn't have an immediate affirmative answer. It was after I followed the commandments that I became sensitive to the Holy Spirit and knew that what I was doing was right. Show more Show less
