Hi I'm Meagan

I graduated from BYU, and I'm in my fourth year of teaching 3rd grade! Music and laughter are the best kinds of happiness.

About Me

I was born in Idaho, but since then I have moved around a ton. When I was 16 I ended up here in the great state of Utah. I love watching movies, I have music on in the background of everything I do, and playing the piano is my ultimate stress relief. I am definitely a people person, and I get along with everyone. My family is number one in my life, and I will do anything for them! I am 25 years old. I recently bought my own house, and have enjoyed the adventure of turning it into my own safe haven. I am in my fourth year of teaching 3rd grade, and I love almost every minute of it! Those kiddos sure know how to keep me on my toes. Life is busier than I ever imagined, and in turn sort of scary. But it is still unfolding, and I am on track to something wonderful, I just know it. :)

Why I am a Mormon

The road to gaining a testimony was a rocky one for me. I grew up as a member of this church, but it took until I was 18 or so to decide that I really believed it for myself, and not just because it was what I had always associated with. I never magically grew a testimony, but bit by bit I came to know that my Father in Heaven does indeed exist, and that He loves me and wants me to be happy and successful. I know that God will always be there for me, and that I am never alone. I am so grateful for the scriptures and the comfort that they are to me, as well as for the knowledge that when all else fails I can turn to them to calm my troubled heart. I do believe in this Gospel, and I am so incredibly grateful for its constant presence and the guiding force that it has been in my life. I know that it makes up a huge part of my values and beliefs and that it is the single biggest contribution to the person that I am today. I am glad that I never had to question moral issues. I grew up knowing right from wrong, and I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to be born into this church, to grow up with it always being a part of my life. I am so grateful for modern-day revelation, and latter-day prophets. I don't know where I would be without their constant guidance in my life. I am grateful every second of every day for the opportunity to be a part of something so amazing; to have the knowledge that I do of this church. This is the true church. I know that now, and I am going to do all in my power to strengthen that resolve and keep building up my testimony.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by example. I am kind and inviting to everyone, and serve others whenever possible. I make it a point to be a friend to everyone.My best friend in high school once told me that she started looking into religion (Not the LDS church, it was actually a different form of Christianity) just because she wanted to feel the happiness that I always seemed to radiate. Life is good, and it's in large portion due to my faith. :)

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

I am not married, but I am a strong believer of marrying within my faith. I know that the strongest of marriages will be one where we are in sync in every aspect of our lives. If my spouse and I give considerable effort to maintaining our faith within our relationship, then we can overcome any obstacle. I truly believe that. As far as friends go, I know that having faith in Christ helps you to love others, as you are able to see them through His eyes. My faith helps me to see the best in people, and to love them for who they are. I think that my faith has helped me to strengthen every one of my relationships, and I am grateful for that.
