Hi I'm Megan

I'm a half Italian wife, world traveler, and photographer . I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 22 years old, and recently entered into a lot of change in my life. My husband and I have almost been married a year, and we couldn't be happier. I grew up in Utah, with great support from friends and family as I approached many different things in middle school to high school, and college at UVU. I am a Photographer and I love what I do. A week after our honeymoon, we moved to Carlsbad, CA into our new condo. I have never lived away from my family, and it has been a really tough transition. I wouldn't change it for anything, even at the most home sick of times. Family is the most important thing in my life, following the Gospel. I would do anything for both.

Why I am a Mormon

I could talk about every scripture I know by memory (which is not many), or every lesson I know by heart, but what it comes down to for me, is that I may not be the most educated in the Gospel, or have had the most callings in the church- but I HAVE witnessed several times in my life, by the Holy Ghost, through reading the Book of Mormon, or baring my testimony at EFY, or attending a service project on an early Saturday morning, that this Gospel, this doctrine, is of Jesus Christ. This is the church of Jesus Christ. This is where you can find all the right happiness, and all the right peace and blessings in one. This is where you can find the very most needed healing in the world. I have experienced all of these things, through Christ. Through being a Mormon. I have gotten through the hardest of things that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy, only through the pure love of Christ. The Gift of Repentance through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

This is the first time in my life where I don't have my parents to tell me to go to church on Sundays. My husband and I are on our own now, making our own decisions on how we will live our lives. It has truly been an amazing adventure so far, in making our own family traditions and always trying to do better in living the Gospel. We have made a great habit of attending church each week, trying our best in doing our visiting/home teaching, and holding family home evening each Monday. We always say prayer together before we go to sleep, and read at least one verse of scripture. Right when we moved into the ward, I got a calling. I am the Cub Scout Bear Leader. Might I say, it has been an amazing calling for me to interact with these great boys and meet new friends (their mothers.) I love this Gospel, and I love striving to fill each day with as much light that I can, from Christ.
