Hi I'm Megan Gardner

I am a college student, BYU basketball fan, Arizona girl, sister, and daughter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old and I have been studying at BYU for a year. My family moved to Utah when I graduated from High School but I will always be a desert girl. I love Arizona! I love dancing, music, hiking and being outdoors. I have five siblings and I am also an aunt. I love American Sign Language and I want to be a Speech Pathologist one day.

Why I am a Mormon

In life, we all have struggles, disappointments, and challenges. The gospel of Jesus Christ has helped me to find peace during these times. I know that Christ lives and loves each of us. I also know that we have a loving Heavenly Father. He hears and answers my prayers. There have been times in my life where I have been confused or felt alone but when I have prayed, I have felt His love and I have been given direction. Some of these answers I have found in the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon along with the Bible have given me guidance and strength. I know that the Book of Mormon and Bible are both the word of God. Christ has made it possible to find happiness in this life through the atonement. I know that the atonement is real. Christ suffered for us so that we can have Eternal Life and I know that there is life after death. Families can be together forever because of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith by trying to be like Jesus Christ. My faith is centered around Christ and trying to be like Him is to love others and to serve them. Christ was the ultimate example of service. I try to look for those who are struggling or need a friend because that was what Christ did. He looked after the one and has asked us to do the same. I love serving others and that is why I am so excited to serve as a missionary in June. I have been called to serve in the England Birmingham mission. I am dedicating 18 months of my life to serving others and bringing them the happiness that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has given to me.

In whom should we have faith?

Megan Gardner
We must have faith in God and that he loves us. As we develop faith in a loving Heavenly Father, we will come to have faith that he sent his son Jesus Christ. God knows us and wants to hear from us. One way we can communicate with him and increase our faith is through prayer. As we pray, we can come to learn of our Heavenly Father's love for us and that he has a plan for each of his children. When we have faith in a loving God, we will come to believe in Jesus Christ and know that we can be happy in this life. Show more Show less
