Hi I'm Megan

I'm a dancer, I'm a musician, I'm a reader, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love theater and I love dance. I do jazz dance and tap. I also love exploring other styles of dance such as hip hip, Irish, ballroom, and folk dance. I enjoy hiking and exploring this beautiful world. I also love to read historical fiction, mystery, and fantasy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family and grew up learning the gospel, but that is not the only reason I'm a Mormon. As I have learned and lived the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have seen great blessings in my life. Living the gospel makes me happy. I have come to know for myself that God is our loving Heavenly Father. He has answered my prayers. I know that Jesus Christ paid the price for our sins so that we can repent and return to live with Heavenly Father again. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true witness of Christ. Heavenly Father restored his true gospel through the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that it is true because as I have read, studied, and applied the teachings of the Book of Mormon into my life, I have received a witness from the Spirit of God in my mind and in my heart that it is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being kind to others, being honest, and keeping my actions aligned with my knowledge of right and wrong. I serve my family and look for ways I can serve those around me.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Megan
God loves all of his children who have lived in all ages and all areas of the earth. However, not everyone has the opportunity to learn the gospel and be baptized during their mortal life. Many people lived during ages of apostasy when the gospel and the authority to baptize was not on the earth. Because the ordinance of baptism is necessary for salvation, we perform baptisms for the dead. We are baptized vicariously for someone who died without being baptized themselves. That person, who has been taught the gospel as a spirit in the spirit world, then has the opportunity to accept or reject the baptism. Show more Show less

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Megan
Thomas S. Monson is the prophet today. He has been given authority from God to direct the church today and to receive revelation from God for the whole church. We follow the teachings of prophets because they speak the words of God. Show more Show less
