Hi I'm Megan Segovia

I was born and raised in the U.S., I love my family and want to be with them eternally. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was diagnosed with M.S. at age 14. I love to swim. I have lived in many parts of the US from Forida to Hawii. I am a proud mom and grandma. I am an R.N. I love family history and I am so thankful for the many opportunities Heavenly Father has given me. The circumstance of having M.S. for much of my life has brought many hard things but also many good things. It seemed to put me in a crash course to learning of our Heavenly Father's love for us, for each one of us, for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I have read and continue to read the Book of Mormon; I try to do what it teaches. I have asked Heavenly Father in the name of Christ if it is true, and He has shown me by the power of the Holy Ghost that, yes, it is true. This was not only a one time thing, but continues to be reaffirmed and strengthened. I know there is a Saviour, He lived in the meridian of time, He died and was resurrected. He lives today. He is our Saviour, God's Son. Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. The Church of Jesus Christ is restored and here today through Joseph Smith by the power of God in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Book of Mormon is true. God, our Heavenly Father does love us, His children. He does have a plan for each one of us and has provided all we need to be happy, follow that plan, and gain eternal life and exaltation with Him and our family through His Son Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I love teaching the children, especially through music. I have the opportunity to be in the spanish branch and love to do the music there. I also am continuing as the family history consultant there. I have felt help from Heavenly Father many times as I learn spanish, try to speak it, or understand it. I am thankful for my husband who has helped me with the tools I needed to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the area of Family History. I really love having the special opportunity of visiting the sisters in their homes and developing special relationships with them and their families, to be a friend. This is called visiting teaching. The sisters I visit teach change sometimes, which gives me a chance to have that special opportunity with others. I love family history and enjoy working at the Family History Center. I love my family and am so thankful for all the many ways to connect with all of them that are available to us today.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Megan Segovia
They are harmful to our bodies. I want and need my body, including my mind, to be as able as it can be to hear, or feel, the still small voice of the Holy Ghost, as well as to respond to it. If we take good care of our bodies, they will serve us well. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Megan Segovia
We must have faith in Jesus Christ. This faith works when it moves us to act on it, such as repent, or change our bad behavior, in order to behave as Christ taught us to. It begins with desiring to believe, letting that desire to believe stay and grow, as you read the scriptures, and ask God to help you, and do what you know to do. Show more Show less
