Hi I'm Megan

I'm a stay-at-home mom to my two beautiful children, I live in Chattanooga, Tn and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the youngest of 4 children - 2 brothers and 1 sister. I now have 2 children of my own and I have the privilege of staying home with them everyday. It is a challenge to be a mother. I work around the clock and someone always needs me. I am working hard to be a good example to my children, family and friends. I try to devote some time each day to my Savior and Heavenly Father; and while that time is not easy to find, I make it happen - because I need the blessings, and it is the absolute least I can do for them! I have learned that when we force ourselves out of our comfort zones, things that were once hard or nearly impossible become our new comfort zone. All thanks to divine help. I like to read self-help books put out by members and leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I want to do all I can to turn my weaknesses into strengths. While I'm not a terrible cook, I'd rather spend my time in the kitchen baking sweets. I like all things interior design, architecture, DIY projects, and especially organizing. I like to be with my husband as much as I can, and I love going out with the sister missionaries each week, teaching people about The Gospel of Jesus Christ. It reminds me of the love Heavenly Father has for each of His children, and His desire to have them all come back to live with Him. I am a daughter of God who loves me, and I love Him.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined after taking the missionary discussions when I was 2 years old, and so I grew up going to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints most Sundays. Growing up there were a lot of struggles in our family and in my own personal life - especially in High School. Through the thick and thin of it all something always kept our family together, which made people wonder at times. I began to wonder also. My second semester of my senior year in High School I began attending church with my heart and mind set on finding out who I was and what it was that made our faith different from the others. I began to read the Book of Mormon, I began to pray daily, and I began to have a relationship with my Heavenly Father. I literally could not put the book down, and I read it in just under 3 weeks. I knew in my heart that this book is the Word of God, and that it works in sink with the Bible. I gained my own personal testimony then that this is God's restored church. That He loves me and has a plan for me. After experiencing The Atonement of Jesus Christ in my life at that time, I knew I had been forgiven of all I had done wrong up to that point. The power of forgiveness is real and I am a witness of it's healing powers. I know this is His church. I also know through experience that all it takes is us being humble enough to read, ponder and pray to discover these truths out for ourselves. This has brought me true JOY. I am a Mormon. I know it. I live it. I LOVE IT!

How I live my faith

Currently I have been going out with the sister missionaries once a week to teach people about The Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have also been called to be the Social Media Missionary for our Ward. I am SO excited about this! Each month I get in touch with a few women to see how they are doing and if I can help them in any way - this is called Visiting Teaching. In the past I have served in a few different areas of the church - I have taught the 7-8 year old children during Sunday School and I have been with the 7-11 year old girls on Wednesday nights. I try to always be a good example and make good choices. I try to share the Gospel with friends, family, and neighbors. I share my testimony in church meetings. I also try to attend the Temple as often as I can. I teach my children about Jesus Christ and His Gospel. Sometimes it is hard to keep up and do everything, so I just pray, read my scriptures, attend church and keep moving forward.
