Hi I'm Megan Shill

I'm a Mormon. I love sports and outdoor activities. I am adopted, and love my family!

About Me

I am a huge sports and outdoors person. I love to try new things and make the most out of any situation. I was a competitive gymnast for 12 years, and then in high school decided to be a cheerleader instead. I also took up track and soccer, both of which I was successful at. I won multiple region titles for hurdles and sprints, and even was invited to the State meet. I had many colleges offer me scholarships for both cheer leading and track, but I decided to focus on schooling instead of sports. I was involved in Student Council, and was a student body officer for my school and participated in over 50 hours of community service my Junior and Senior year. I love being able to serve and help others.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life, but I believe that I was truly converted my Junior year of high school. This is when I had the most trials with my faith and found myself in constant prayer with the Lord to help me perservere through the hard times. I was constantly studying my scriptures and found myself looking forward to reading them and learning something new each day. Everything that I was taught in church just seemed to make sense, and I began to gain my own testimony of the gospel.

How I live my faith

While in young women's I was always called as a President of my class at sometime, and when I reached my university ward was called as a Sunday school teacher. Both of which I loved. In high school I was on the Youth Committee and helped to plan multiple activities including a stake-wide trek where we would dress like the pioneers and participate in long hikes like they did. I found that in high school, even though there was a large Mormon population, it was still hard to hold my standards and stand up for what I believe in. Especially in cheerleading. Many of the girls I cheered with had no standards, and would attend many parties where there would be alcohol and drugs. Many times I was laughed at because I refused to go, but after a while they too began to stand up for me when people poked fun of what I believed. Now I am on my mission as a Sister Training Leader and I love it!
