Hi I'm Megan

Jersey Girl. Massage Therapist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Oldest of two children. When I was 5 years old, my parents took in my three cousins soon after my little brother was born. I went from an only child to having 4 additionally siblings. I couldn't have asked for anything better. I love my family and am eternally grateful that I can be cealed to them. Not many members of my family are members of the LDS church; and the majority on my dad's side are not blood related. From different walks of life, religious and other personal points of view; we still are all a part of a wonderful and loving family. Through my struggles and triumphs, they have always been there for me supporting me every step of the way. I know my parents personal decisions have affected my life for the better. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ has blessed my life eternally. I love my family with all my heart and cherish the times we've had and the ones that lie ahead.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the gospel, my true conversion was when i was about 14 years old. I had gained a testimony up to that point in my life. I knew the importance of prayer and scripture study. I had a testimony of Jesus Christ; that through His love and the holy ghost that my grandfather chose to join the church, and as a result- my mom remaining a member. My father joined after my mom had introduced him to the gospel. Their example had kept me strong along with my own convictions. Around the time I was 14, there were a lot of changes in my life. Changes that made me doubt myself and question, "why should I pray? why does it matter if i read scriptures? do i want to go to church? i want to be alone, i feel like no one wants to listen." Throughout this time, I was very unhappy. I still went to church, which i enjoyed, i had great friends there. I didn't lose my testimony or fall away from the rod, i had just held on with one had instead of two. After realizing from lessons by my young women's teachers and others' struggles, i decided to pray more often, short prayers and read one verse a night form my scriptures. Soon, my prayers began to be long and invoice tears of comfort. My scriptures reading began to be chapters a night rather thana few versus. I became happier, more complete; how I once was and beyond. The circumstances did not change, but were more bearable with time and healing from our kind our merciful Lord. I gained a stronger testimony of prayer and the importance of scripture study and keeping a journal. Two years later, at age 16, I received my patriarchal blessing. It had blessings and answers for my life that only the Lord knew I needed. I am a member of the curch of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know that the Lord provides for us. Even when we are not doing our part, the Lord's hand is Always outstretched. Have faith. ask and ye shall recieve. knock and it shall be opened unto you.
