Hi I'm Meg

I live in the UK, I study Journalism at University, I love life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Northampton, as the youngest in a family of 7. I enjoy netball, running, swimming and going to the gym. I also love to read fiction but to also write it. I'm at University studying Journalism however hopefully one day I would like to edit and publish peoples novels (including my own). I am learning German, slowly I might add but hope to get fluent speaking it. I love traveling to different parts of the world to see their cultures, but I also love living in England despite the cold, wet weather.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it gives me hope and peace. With all the suffering that goes on in the world, it is hard sometimes to find the light at the end of the tunnel. However, when living the teachings of this particular faith I feel comfort and a desire to be my best self. I have at times found it hard to live in this way, particularly when so many of my friends who aren't Mormons are having fun doing things that as a Mormon, I shouldn't be doing but I have concluded that being a Mormon makes me happy, I feel free, unburdened and hopeful because I know that God loves me regardless of the mistakes I have made and will continue to make. The gospel is so important in my life, it is something I treasure and hold dear to my heart. I am not perfect by any means, but I can strive to be. I believe firmly that this Church is the only true church upon this earth and cannot wait to see Christ again.

How I live my faith

Every sunday I teach 3-5 years olds simple principles of our gospel, I look forward to this as each and every child that is in my class is different yet wonderful, they're full of life and energy and remind me of how pure and innocent they are. I also visit members of our local church to see how they are doing and to update them with the latest news and advice that has been given from the leaders of our church. In the summer I will be an EFY councilor, my role includes teaching and looking after a group of girls from between the ages of 14-18 at a large gathering for the Mormon youth of the United Kingdom.
