Hi I'm Meghan

I'm a full time missionary serving in the Tallahassee Florida Mission. I love my faith, family, and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of seven. My mom, dad, three younger brothers and one sister. My family taught the importance of service and love. They taught me patience and understanding. I attended college for a couple of years and decided, after much prayer and consideration, that now would be a good time to go and serve the Lord! I"m grateful that I did. I've learned much about other people, my self, my religion, and the things that should be most important to me. I love to see the world around me and learn more about the histories and cultures of many different people, places, and things! I enjoy reading, writing, and helping others in any way I can.

Why I am a Mormon

My testimony came slowly. There were times of trial and testing for me, when I realized that I needed help, I couldn't do it all on my own! I knew that Heavenly Father was always there and I could seek His help through prayer and reading the scriptures. I found comfort and understanding from doing those simple things. I read the Book of Mormon through and took the challenge at the end, found in Moroni 10:3-5, to pray and ask God if it really was from Him. Through the peaceful feelings of the Holy Ghost, I got my answer. It was YES! I love the Bible, I find many truths in it. I know that the Book of Mormon is also the word of God. We need it because it contains the fullness of Christ's one and true Gospel. Those truths were lost for a long time, but they've been brought back through the teachings in the Book of Mormon and through living prophets who receive revelation from our Heavenly Father, to help us now! Take the challenge to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. I know that when you do, you will receive that witness from the Holy Ghost that it is true, that Joseph Smith was called to be a prophet and through him Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ restored the gospel to the earth,. You will know that this church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the Lord's church once again established on the earth today. I know that you will find great peace and happiness in the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

This is a special period in my life, as a full time missionary, when I get to dedicate all of my time and energies toward serving the Lord and helping those around me come closer to Him. I love to look for ways in which I can serve those around me. I believe that actions can speak louder than words. I want others to recognize me as a disciple of Jesus Christ in the way I treat others. Missionaries go out each day and look for those who want to be taught more about the gospel of Jesus Christ. We're definitely not professional teachers, but I've found that the more I study and then teach, the more my testimony and understanding of the gospel increase. I love that this is also a wonderful teaching and learning opportunity for me as well! The more I learn and grow, the more I want to share my knowledge and testimony with others. I know that there is always someone around us who needs help. Serving and caring for those around us will help others feel the love of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
