Hi I'm Morgan

I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student at Utah State University studying to be a psychologist. When I'm not studying or at school, I work in a prediatrics doctors office as a receptionist. In my down time I like to relieve stress by running or baking. Some of my other hobbies include doing anything outdoors, sports, and cooking. I grew up in Eagle, Idaho where I lived with my dad, step-mom, step-brother, sister, and step-sister.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents divorced when I was two. While my dad, who is a non-member, had custody of my sister and I, my family never got the chance to participate in church. When I would occasionally see my mother, who was very ill, my sister and I would attend sacrament with her, but this was a total of about ten times. When I turned eight I was baptized as a member of the LDS church. I didn't understand the reasoning behind it, or how sensational it was to have this gift at the time. My mother went down a wayward path and was excommunicated from our church. From that point on, I had never attended church until I was sixteen years old. I became activated in the church when a my best friend and her family invited me to go with them. I loved the way I felt when I went, and although I didn't know anyone, they were all so accepting and respected me regardless. I kept attending church and before I knew it my mom was re-baptized and I had a firm testimony of the gospel. I am a Mormon because I am always learning more and more about this church. While my testimony may be tested at times, I know that I can constantly progress to become like my father in heaven in hopes that one day I can influence the rest of my family to become members as well.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by remembering that I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints daily. Whether this is through my daily morning and evening prayer and scripture study, or through my attendence of institute and family home evenings I am surrounded by choices every day to exercise my beliefs. In addition to these activities I also able to magnify my calling as being a ward missionary in my student ward by bringing less active, or non-member citizens to church. Monthly, I attend to the cares of other females in my apartment by visiting with them and sharing a gospel message.
