Hi I'm Megan

I'm a wife, a mom, and a full time college student and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was not sure what i wanted to go to college for until I had my little girl. I realized I loved teaching her and that's when I decided to go back to school for a degree in education. Life has been anything but relaxing the past few years having two young kids and a husband in school full time as well-- but somehow we are at the right place at the right time in our lives to be accomplishing our goals. When I am not busy with school work I value every minute I have with my family. We love to watch movies, read books, take walks, play outside, listen to music, dance around and laugh together.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were baptized when I was just two so I grew up in a Mormon home. As a young adult I stopped going to church for a number of years. I wanted to figure out life on my own but something felt like something was missing. There was an element of pure happiness that I just could not find. I chose to begin attending church again and rebuilding my relationship with the Savior through scripture study and prayer. It was a process that took time and I was willing to make that commitment. That missing element of pure happiness was restored as I strengthened my testimony of the gospel. I am grateful to have had this experience to grow from and confirm that temporal satisfaction can never replace eternal joy.

How I live my faith

I am a youth Sunday school teacher and girls camp leader. Outside of church I am busy with my college education and my family. I volunteer as an assistant with my daughters Girl Scout troop attend local cycling events and community events. When summer rolls around and the young women (girls ages 12-18) head to girls camp for the week, I am one of the fearless leaders who attend. We leave our hectic, technology filled lifestyle and head to the woods for a week of camping. Being surrounded by nature allows the girls (as well as the leaders) to draw close to our Savior and Heavenly Father and to admire the beautiful world he has given us. I look forward to this week every year! Teaching the teenagers of today keeps me on my toes. I love to hear how they are examples of leadership and uphold high standards for their peers. They give me strength to keep feeding my testimony through scripture study and prayer. We encourage one another to be good examples to our friends and neighbors. Since I am in college and many of my class members are headed to college I encourage them to stay strong and active in the church. My favorite quote is, "I never said it would be easy, only worth it". It is very true and my guiding advice to the young people of the church.
