Hi I'm Megan Harmer

I am going on a mission, I am an honor student, I love to serve and I am a MORMON!!!

About Me

I am 19 and about to serve a mission for The Church of Later-Day Saints! I leave for Reno Nevada on November 13th 2013 and I couldn't be happier! I grew up with a learning disability and have struggled with school all my life but after priesthood blessings and years of hard work, I was able to go to Brigham Young University Idaho and achieve the Honor Roll all through high school and in my first year of college. I have been socially awkward since I was little and have been working hard to overcome this trial with prayer and lots of love from my family. I have kept the standards and am striving to be better every day. I love this Gospel with all my heart and I wouldn't be where I am today without it.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 2 years old, I was diagnosed with a learning disability and completely shut out the world. For years my mom worked with me every day and prayed earnestly for help as I progressively improved. I also received blessings with all of the additional prayers and hard work and was able to get out of Special Education classes into the normal curriculum of public school in the 4th grade. My parents helped me every night with homework, and I worked extremely hard to make A's and B's all through middle and high school. I still struggle in college and am working hard to get my degree. I remember praying for help with friends and school as a kid and received comfort from my Heavenly Father that everything was going to be alright. I also frequently every other winter get Pneumonia and received many blessings of healing when things looked grim. I have followed my standards daily since I was taught to do so and sometimes it was a real struggle to be different from everyone else, more than I already was, but I was blessed for it. I knew in my heart that these standards were the right thing to do and I was not going to waver from them even if it meant standing alone. I know this church is true and I know for a fact that Heavenly Father is watching out for me because I wouldn't be here without him or my parents. I am a Mormon because this is the true Gospel of Jesus Christ and I will not deny all the miracles he has put into my life.

How I live my faith

I show my standards and beliefs from the time I wake up until I go to bed. I have never taken a drink, smoke/ sniff, or injection of anything harmful into my body and I do not drink caffeine products and quite honestly I do not want to. We all have a choice and some of the things I mentioned make you choose to take away your freedom to choose. I listen to clean music so there are no curse words or suggestive topics that can influence your thoughts and actions. I always try to introduce myself to visitors to the church or new members so they feel welcome and a part of our giant family. I try to read my scriptures and pray every night so I have the spirit with me throughout the day. My goal is also to invite others to live the gospel so that they may know the happiness it brings and the blessings you can receive from the Gospel. I try to live every day knowing it could be my last and to make a difference in this world. I serve as much as I can and find the good in every person I meet, being a friend to those who just need someone to listen. You never know how much a smile can mean to someone who is having a bad day!

Are Mormons Christians?

Megan Harmer
We are The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints. In our name it says we are Christians and we believe he died for us so we may atone for our sins and return to Heavenly Father. We believe in the King James version of the Bible and know it is the European record of before and after Christ came on the earth. We also believe in the Book of Mormon which is the American record of when Jesus Christ visited the Americas after he was crucified. Show more Show less
