Hi I'm Meghan

I'm from New York; I study business finance, and I enjoy foreign languages. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born into a Military family, and am the only daughter of four children. I moved a lot as a child and met different types of people. I am a Business Finance major at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I really enjoy studying foreign cultures, and their languages, namely Mandarin Chinese. When I was about 11 years old, I found a deep passion for studying various world religions, and greatly enjoyed studying Judaism. During that time I was becoming more aware of the world, and grew to be enthralled in world history. Learning about the different tragedies from many books I had been reading, caused me to question the existence of a higher power, and when I was around 13, I doubted there was such a higher power, one that cared. Following that, my family faced some difficult times, and I found myself alone and depressed. One day when I was 15, I decided to get down on my knees (for the first time), and I prayed, asking if there is a God. I knelt, asking that He would solve the issues that were facing my family, and with that, I would follow the way He would want me to go, that I wanted to know which one is His. Two months later, some family issues were resolved, and I found my answer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Latter-day Saint (Mormon), because I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior, and that He is the only way to Salvation. Mosiah 3:17 I found peace and the love of Christ in the Book of Mormon and the Holy Bible. I am doing what I can to prepare to meet my Maker, and stand blameless before Him at the last day. Galatians 2:16

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the daily renewal I seek from our Heavenly Father. I live my faith by the personal time spent in prayer and communication with Heavenly Father- whether it be in the Holy Temples of the Lord, the early morning at my bedside, or a desk at the library. I haven't been an official member of this Church for very long; I was baptized at the age of 18, in November of 2011. With that said, I will say I have been a true member since I was fifteen, having been able to feel the peace and reassurance of the blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, since I diligently knelt and asked in prayer. I seek to share the blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ by leaving for 18 months to Guatemala, to share His holy message.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

The purpose of this life is to prepare to meet God. We are to learn and exercise what we know, and do it in a way that brings up closer to Christ, by acting as He would. When we exercise faith in Jesus Christ and follow His example, we can return to the presence of our Father in Heaven again. We are given difficulties through out this life, and sometimes it may seem difficult to continue on, being as Christ is. Each trial we face, gives us another opportunity to show our faith and testimony of Christ, by providing another way for us to act as He would in our situation. Show more Show less
