Hi I'm Megan

I'm a college student, a wife, a rock climber, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am in my senior year at Brigham Young University studying to be a high school physics teacher. I love to learn about things and at school I am learning so much I can hardly fit it all in my head. I'm the oldest of four kids and I love my family. They are completely weird and they drive me crazy, but I'm grateful I get to live with them forever. I recently got married to the love of my life, Mason, and he surprises me every day with how sweet, forgiving, and fun he is. My husband and I love rock climbing, biking, swimming, hiking, camping, and occasionally I can convince him to go running outside with me. We are training for our first triathlon! A few years ago, I returned from serving a 1 1/2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Moscow, Russia. It was hands down one of the most humbling and wonderful experience of my life. The people of Russia were some of the most loyal and good people I've ever met.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is the true church and it is the church the Lord wants me to be a part of. I was born a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have grown up with the teachings of the gospel. Like many members, I grew up relying on the testimony of my parents and believing what they taught me. But there came a point when I had to know if it was true myself. The knowledge has not come in one giant vision; it continues to come in small moments- every time I listen to a talk in sacrament meeting or read my scriptures or pray to my Father in Heaven. The Holy Ghost gives me a feeling and witness that what I am listening to is true doctrine and that my Heavenly Father loves me very much. The feeling is subtle but undeniable. I know that the church and the gospel of Jesus Christ are true and good, and because I know it, I have to live according to its principles to the best of my ability. It had brought me indescribable peace, even as life gets chaotic. I’m always truly happy when I have the spirit and the gospel in my mind and heart.

How I live my faith

Faith is something that guides me every day. My belief in Jesus Christ gives me hope when things look hopeless and encourages me to treat everyone I meet with kindness and respect. Every Sunday I go to church for three hours. Three hours seems like a long time, but I appreciate every moment because it spiritually recharges me for the week. At church, I teach the kids (ages 3-12) primary songs and we have a ton of fun together.
