Hi I'm Morgan

I'm a daughter. I'm a sister. I'm a friend. I'm an aunt. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being on stage. I don't care what I'm doing, whether it's singing or acting or just being a prop. My fears are gone when the stage light hits me, which is ironic considering it's normally the other way. I also love to read. Reading takes me places. I see new things and have experiences through others. Perhaps that's why I love to act. I get to be someone else, and step into a new world.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS faith. I was floundering around, trying to find my testimony. Mostly I would just latch on to other's and their testimonies. I went to church because my parents did. All of that changed December 28, 2010. That was the day my father died. It was sudden. A heart attack. I was stunned. A few days later, when the denial wore off, I realized that I had an option. Having watched family members go through something like this I knew that I could sit in my own pool of tears and misery, or I could live my life the way my father expected me to. So I did. With the help of the church, I picked myself up and kept living. I chose to look at the bigger picture. For some reason, my Heavenly Father needed my earthly father. I will see him in Heaven. He is watching over me. That is why I'm a member of this church. Because I know with every cell of my being that it is true.

How I live my faith

I have a calling (or job) where I take care of other girls my age. I help check up on them and make sure they know that we love them. I love doing it because I love the girls in my ward. I want to serve the Lord. I'm also encouraged by my teachers to look for ways to serve people of all ages. I love giving people baked goods. I love putting a smile on people's faces.

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

The easy answer for this is the Lord. The authority of the church is passed on to the next apostle who has been called for the longest. Nothing is an accident and the line of succession is exactly how the Lord would have it. Show more Show less
