Hi I'm Megan

I was born and raised in Texas. I'm serving a mission in San Jose, California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently attending Brigham Young University. I'm studying elementary education, in hopes of becoming a teacher one day. I'm taking a break from school for a while to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I will be a missionary for 18 months in California. I love cooking, singing, and watching movies with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all of my life. I'm grateful for the knowledge I have gained as I have grown up in this church. The gospel has blessed my life so much. I love being a Mormon. In Texas, there are many different religions, so I had the opportunity to talk about my beliefs with people from many different faiths. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's church established on the earth. I know that we are led today by a prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I know that he is called of God to lead and guide the Saints today. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel to the earth, and he translated the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon is a true book, and it can help us answer questions and concerns that we may have. I know that The Lord hears and answers our prayers. Even if an answer does not come when or how we want, it will always come. I know that I am a daughter of God. He loves me, and I love Him.

How I live my faith

The summer of 2013, I was able to teach a Sunday school class to the 9 and 10-year-olds. I love children so much, so I was extremely grateful for the opportunity I had to teach kids about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I also love to do service for others. I was a member of National Honor Society in high school, so I was able to participate in many different service opportunities. I love helping people in any way I can. I also live my faith by wearing modest clothing. I know how precious my body is, so I want to take good care of it and treat it well. I also believe dressing modestly sets an example for others to follow.
