Hi I'm Megan

I'm corky, I love playing basketball, My favorite day is Thursday, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Southern California and raised in North Carolina. I attended school at BYU-Idaho and I am looking forward to finishing my education. I was called to serve in the Oregon Portland Mission and I'm absolutely loving it here! I am blessed to be able to serve in Oregon and the people here. I love playing basketball, softball, and running. My favorite place in the entire world is the beach. Ice cream is the most amazing thing to the taste buds. I love being who I am.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both converts to the gospel. My dad found the church when he was attending high school and his baseball coach was actually the bishop of the local ward. My mom actually had an impressive family history. Her family were some of the first members of the church when the gospel was restored. My grandfather was not active during his adult life so my mom was never baptized and didn't know too much about the church. I am a Mormon because I believe in this church and it's mission to spread the gospel and messages of Jesus Christ. I don't think there has been a direct time when I have been converted, but there have been many instances and experiences that have testified to me that this church is true. I am proud to be a member of this church and a future missionary.

How I live my faith

My first year at college I had a rough time. I was homesick and there were some personal issues that I needed to deal with. I came back home and decided that I needed to figure out who I was and where I stood in this world. It took awhile, but I eventually came back to the gospel and received the knowledge that this church is true. I decided to go on a mission because I wanted other people to have the same happiness that I have experienced in my life.
