Hi I'm Megan

I'm a cheerleader, a coach, a dancer, a pianist, a singer and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a cheerleader since I was 12 years old. I've watched football religiously since before I can remember. I am working towards a master's degree while planning a wedding. I don't currently have any children but plan to soon after I marry my sweetheart. I am working towards being a certified athletic trainer so that I can work with professional athletes in preventing and rehabilitating their injuries. I love football, which is actually the reason I became a cheerleader. I now coach little girls in tumbling and cheerleading. Passing on my talents to young people is one of the most rewarding experiences one can have. I also ride my horses, swing dance and LOVE singing and playing my piano. Music is my favorite way to express myself.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church along with the rest of my siblings. My family has a very extensive history in the church dating back to the pioneers. I respect and appreciate the individuals who make the decision to join the church later in life because I have not had that experience. I have had the gospel with me my entire life and not once have doubted its truthfulness. I recognize the fact that I would not be where I am today and would not have accomplished what I have so far had it not been for the church. I enjoy every aspect of the church, but a one of the things means the most to me is the way the relief society is run. I gain peace in the knowledge that I will always have sisters who will be there for me no matter where I go, what I do or who I am. The relief society is an inspired work and I appreciate the blessings it has brought in my life. My family has been through a divorce, a life-time sentence in prison, out-of-wedlock pregnancies, and countless other tragic sin-related experiences. I delight in the atonement and the knowledge that no matter what we do or don't do, we will always have the opportunity to come back to Christ through the process of repentance. I have utilized the atonement an immeasurable amount of times in my life and every time I do, I gain a new love for the savior and his sacrifice for me personally. I know of no other church that teaches about the savior and the atonement like the LDS church which is why I have never strayed from it.

How I live my faith

I have several non-member friends including people I work and cheer with. I love and respect all of them. I do not have a current calling in the church, but I take it upon myself to be a constant missionary. I work with the elders in my single's ward and my family ward to give them leads and attend discussions. I love the work that the missionaries do and I want to help them as much as possible. I am a visiting teacher and I try to help out my fellow sisters as much as possible in any way I can. I help out the community through the church and other ways in volunteering time and other resources to help the less fortunate. I am grateful that the church has taught me to always give what you can because it is the greatest feeling helping others!

What is faith?

Faith is the belief and hope in something without actually seeing it. Faith is the core foundation of our church. Whenever you have a question about something in the gospel, pray to your Father in Heaven, asking in faith, and you will receive an answer. When we go through trials or have doubts, we must always have faith that it is for our own good. Faith is a fundamental principle in our church. It is so easy to try to doubt things using science and academia. Using faith, we are able to humble ourselves and leave things in the Lord's hands. It involves trust and hope that he will never forsake us. Show more Show less
