Hi I'm Megan

I'm Happy and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter to wonderful parents who raised me not to doubt or to hold back from what I aspire to do. I am a sister to four siblings. They are my dearest friends. I am a student. I have my Associates degree from Brigham Young University in Idaho. I am a wife. I met my husband up at school during my first semester. I am a mom. The day of finals for my Associates Degree, I gave birth to a beautiful girl. She is my world! I am a musician. I am a self taught piano player. I am a singer. I have been singing for ten years and my favorite way to sing is in church choirs. I am a cook. I make homemade meals for my family and friends. When I was young, I wanted to be a pastry chef and still aspire to include baking in my everyday life. One day, I hope to go back to school and make my dream of being a pastry chef a reality. I am a sewer. My favorite projects are ones for my daughter and home. Some of my favorite things include my friends, Ice cream, Dr. Seuss, and Christmas music.

Why I am a Mormon

I was fourteen years old when the subject of religion first came up in my life. One friend spoke of, "being saved" and I was puzzled. What was being saved? Why would I need to be saved? What am I being saved from? I pondered this often and decided to investigate the idea of religion. I asked my friends what they believed in. They shared many thoughts with me on the role of Jesus Christ, the Trinity, The Fall of Man, and other things I had never really heard of before. They spoke positively of the churches they attended. I listened to what they had to say but did not really understand or believe all of the things that they were telling me. I made a promise to myself that if I were going to be religious, I needed to fully accept everything that they taught. There was always one thing or another that I did not agree with and I thought it would be a mockery to attend a church that I did not fully believe. During this time, my best friend asked me to go to church with her on Sunday. She attended The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I decided to attend because there was no harm in that. I would go, wait to hear something that I did not agree with or believe, and then I could cross that church off of my list. To my surprise, I noticed something during the Sacrament service. I noticed that I had felt very peaceful. I had not heard one thing that I disagreed with. In my entire investigation of religion, I never expected to actually find a place that believed what I believed. My best friend invited me to meet with the Missionaries and this was confirmed again. The moment I knew that the church was true was when the Missionaries told me that Families could be together for all Eternity. I knew without a shadow of a doubt that this had to be true. Two months later, I was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I knew then and I still know now that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that this is His Church on the Earth today.

How I live my faith

I attend Church every Sunday with my Husband and Daughter. I have the opportunity each week to teach and help with children ranging from ages 18 months to 12 years old. I sometimes have the opportunity to play the piano for them when we have our singing time. I enjoy being with them every Sunday! They are enthusiastic and happy and their happiness rubs off on me! I meet with Sisters from the ward each month to see how they are and if I can help them. I also participate in Youth Programs in our community so that I can learn more about children's developmental stages and how we can encourage and teach them in a loving home. I love taking meals to those in need in our ward and neighborhood. My favorite part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the continual awareness of those who are in need. As a family, we try to participate in serving those around us whenever possible.
