Hi I'm Maegan

I'm a softball coach, a missionary in Paris, France and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been playing sports since I can remeber. Softball is my passion, it takes a great amount of skill and athletic ability to play. I've always been the only LDS member on my team and have tried to live my standards, so that others can see that I stand out among the rest. I'm now in college and I am staying focused on my grades trying to get into bigger universities, so that I can get a better education. I love being around my family and friends. I have been called to serve in the France, Paris mission and I have been accepted to the college of my dreams. I couldn't have done any of this without the gospel in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I grew up being LDS. For as long as I can remember my parents have tried to teach me the gospel so that I can be happy. I never see the gospel as something that holds me back from having fun. I have enjoyed staying physically and mentally healthy and strong. The Word of Wisdom helps me stay away from things that can be addictive and harmful to my body. I am able to stay morally clean by my actions because I know the principles that I have taught are there to keep me safe and let me know how much our Heavenly Father loves us. I'm so thankful for all that my Savior has done for me and I strive to give back a little to him by trying to follow his example. I believe the gospel with all my heart and know that Jospeh Smith is the prophet of the Lord and restored the gospel to the earth. Thomas Monson is a true and living prophet today as he strives to be a mouth piece of the Lord to lead and guide the church. I know that The Book Of Mormon is the word of God and is true. This book has helped me with things I face everyday. This gospel is there to help people come closer to our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ, I dont know what I would do without this gospel or where I would be. I hope I would have the courage to seek out the truth and want to know my Heavenly Father and Savior. This gospel brings joy and peace to all that come unto Christ.

How I live my faith

My life is sometimes chaotic when you throw in work, school, friends, church and preparing to serve a mission. Each day I try to remember my purpose in being here and strive to be an example to the people around me. " Live in such a way that others who know you but don't know Christ, will want to know Christ because they know you." Your countenance needs to shine through and people will recognize the light of Christ through the way we act, the good works that we do and how we treat others around us. I live my faith by following the Savior and trying to do a little better than the day before. This life is all about trying to be better, making mistakes and learning from them, and knowing that this life is only a small moment that we must strive to come off conquer in the end. This gospel is the good word and I cant wait to share it with the world. It brings happiness and hope. Jesus Christ is my Savior and the foundation of my beliefs.
