Hi I'm Megan

Utah State Aggie | Health Enthusiast | Major lover of life | Preparing to serve a mission.

About Me

I'm currently a student at Utah State University, studying Community Health and Dietetics. I have way too many hobbies to count! Some consist of playing piano, cooking, singing, running, biking, and camping! I currently work for the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association and also am the social media coordinator for Utah State's Student Association. While life is great right now I have chosen to put all of this on hold temporarily to serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon household, but I wasn't always as fully invested in this Gospel as I should have been. Throughout my High School years and into the beginning of my college experience I was experiencing an all-time low point in my life based off of the lifestyle I was choosing to have. I was not happy. Fortunately, I was blessed to be surrounded by amazing examples at a time I needed & I was able to make the changes necessary to be a worthy member of this Gospel. It wasn't easy, and a lot of times I felt alone. In those moments, however, I really learned to turn to my Savior & realize that He is my best friend. My Savior carried me through these hard times with the guiding hands of angels all around me. I am a member of His gospel because He helped bring me that true happiness that I had been searching for, for so long. It turns out I had been looking in all of the wrong places. True happiness comes as a result of following the teachings and commandments of His gospel. I may have learned that the hard way, but I can now say without a doubt that I know where true happiness lies. The Spirit testifies to me each and every day the truthfulness of His gospel.

How I live my faith

This gospel is all about the simple things. For me, I make sure I am reading my scriptures and saying my prayers daily. Having felt the absence of that in my life before, I have learned how important it really is. I am constantly looking for ways to serve others throughout my community and have had the privilege to work with some of God's most precious children who are currently mentally or physically disabled. I have also had the opportunity to serve in a few callings within the Church. I had the privilege to teach 3 & 4 year-olds about the joys of this gospel & I also had the opportunity to teach a group of women in our Church who ranged in ages probably 18 to 25. I also make an effort to regularly attend our Temples. While I was up at college (I'm currently home for the summer) I made it a goal to attend the Temple weekly. What an amazing testimony builder that was for me. If I was unable to reach my goal for whatever reason (school, work, etc..) I would still make time to at least go walk around the temple grounds or to sit in the parking lot to admire the beauty of the Temple. A definite spirit is felt both inside and out of the temple. I encourage anyone who is reading this (which I'm not sure if any will) that if you are not a member, simply find an LDS temple nearby and go walk around the temple grounds. As long as your heart is in the right place, a spirit will be felt. And what a great feeling that is!
