Hi I'm Megan

I'm from Southern California, I'm a student, I have Aspergers Syndrome, I love Performing, and I'm a mormon

About Me

I'm studying Communications at BYU-Idaho with a minor in Music. I love anything that involves music and Acting. I love reading. I have to limit the books i read per month so I don't run out of books to read. I love movies. I love organizing things. That's why I hope to do secretarial work as soon as I finish school. I'm from a pretty unique place in California where there is a variety of people. I'm diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has always been LDS. It wasn't until I was about 13 that I realized that I didn't truly know if the church was true. It was then that I constantly was praying and searching for what I believe. I can't remember a specific moment when I knew it was true, but it was little things that helped me to see that this church made me feel like no other church could. I have studied other churches and, although the people are all good and searching for what they believe to be true, they couldn't rise a "this is where I belong" or "this is the right church." The only church that made me feel that way was this church. I have struggled a lot and my testimony hasn't always been strong, but I knew for a certainty that this church was true. I know that Christ loves his children so much. He has blessed me through my trials in small significant ways that have took me a long time to see. I love him for it because he first loved me.

How I live my faith

My life is constantly being pummeled with obstacles that I need to get over. Most of my young life, I knew I was different, and being diagnosed with Aspergers and having the gospel in my life has helped me to become a better person. Life isn't always easy, in fact, I believe that it's supposed to be hard so that we may become who our Heavenly Father wants us to be. My experiences humble me to turn to the Lord for help. It's a constant phone call to Him that I am able to get through my trials. My family is also a constant help. They are always there to help me to see what I cannot.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

It is for those who did not have the chance to hear the gospel and for those who did not get the chance to gain the blessing of it. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

It depends on the person. Men should serve a mission, but only if they are strong enough and willing to serve the Lord. With women it's more complicated. They can if they want to, but are not required to. Show more Show less
