Hi I'm Sister Regan

I'm a bookworm. I'm a primary school teacher school teacher. I'm the music lady. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have always loved reading and my favourite books range from Jane Austen to Harry Potter. I love what reading can teach you, about yourself and empathy for people in different situations. I believe music is a powerful thing and I enjoy embarking on new musical projects. I play the violin, which took me from being tone-deaf to singing solos and love trying to play the piano and guitar. I have loved teaching music to the children in nursery and primary. They are super little singers and it's lovely to see their testimonies grow as they learn the inspired lyrics.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being part of a church that is the same wherever you go in the world. I know that Heavenly Father wants to give his children the same opportunities to come closer to him. It also means that we can receive important messages from the Prophet and Apostles. I have always been a Mormon. My Mum was convert to the church and I am so thankful for the decision she made to join. She has done a wonderful job at teaching me its principles. Although my Dad has never been a member, he has always encouraged me and taught me the serious commitment that baptism is. Whilst I had to wait 4 years and see my peers get baptised before I could, that time made me appreciate the blessings of the gospel more. I still knew that Heavenly Father loved me and had a plan for me. That is the biggest blessing of this gospel: it gives us all a purpose to our lives. I know that Heavenly Father is aware of what we each need and how we can achieve our potential. Whatever our circumstances we can work towards getting back to live with him. He has given us scriptures, prayer, prophets, revelation, families and friends to help us on our journey.

How I live my faith

University has given me the opportunity to understand the depth of my faith and participate in the student-aged programme. It has been great organising an evening each week where young people can have fun together and share their feelings about their faith with other members and friends. We love to uplift one another and laugh together. It is brilliant to help out in the community. I loved growing up in a family and a church that helped on a variety of clean-up projects in schools and hospitals. Time spent working together is always when you get to know and love one another better. Serving other people is the main way I can express my love for my Heavenly Father. Now I will be living my faith in absolutely every second of every minute of every day as I serve the Lord in the Portugal Porto mission. As missionaries we put our entire trust in the Lord and learn to rely on his spirit to guide and direct us. Practicing this confidence in his infinite knowledge, power and love, is how we can increase our faith.
