Hi I'm Meagan

I'm the oldest in my family. I'm a musical theater nerd. I'm studying to become a nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in California,and call Arizona home since I've lived here for the past 10 years. I am the oldest of four children, and I have a hard working mother and a sweet father. Selfless charity has been instilled in me since I was little ever since my mother made me sing "Have you Done Any Good?" (church hymn) every morning while getting ready to school. I have a passion for musical theatre and go whenever I have the chance. I am a college student and want with all of my heart to become a nurse and prove to the world that compassion does still exist.

Why I am a Mormon

Yes it's true that I was born into the church. My conversion to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been over my lifetime. It has been in quiet, humble parts of my life where I have received my testimony. For me it was not one massive event in which I was converted, but small experiences here and there that have confirmed to me that this Church is the true Church. I have been blessed in which never in my life have I doubted, but there were times in my life when I wasn't living the commandments of God, and could tell because of the absence of the Spirit. It was during those time where I learned to turn to Christ, and utilize the Atonement in my life, and become stronger because of it. I have been blessed with a pure knowledge of Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father, and realize because of that it is my duty to teach his children, be a good example, be a disciple, be compassionate, be virtuous, be obedient, be loving, and be child of God.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in every aspect of my life. Being a college student AND working almost full time, I find my schedules very busy and very hectic. But I always try to make priority for the church in everything I do. I am the Compassionate Service Leader in my young single adult ward, and I absolutely adore it! Being able to serve the girls in my ward gives me so much joy, no words can describe it. Is the calling convenient for me? No. Do I have to sacrifice for it? Yes. Is it worth it? Most definitely. Whether it's a simple birthday card in the mail for a girl, a can of soup if someone is sick, a kind note if someone is down, a home visit if a girl hasn't been too church in a while, sitting next to someone who looks unfamiliar or is sitting alone, even a simple text... it ALL is meaningful. What I like about my calling is that it isn't so much about the huge, monumental acts of service, but the small deeds of kindness that me and my committee do that make all of the difference. I simply love it.
