Hi I'm Meagan

I'm an animal lover from Idaho. I'm a dancer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a happy family of three children in Northern Idaho. My Dad was a science teacher at the high school I attended. I am 21 years old and currently going to college to get a bachelors in animal science. I am recently married to a wonderful man who treats me very well. My main hobby when not spending time with animals is dancing. I have danced since I was five years old and just never wanted to stop.I danced at a competitive level with a studio for a long time and also dance for my high school dance team. Now in College, I take dance classes when I can fit them in. I will graduate in three semesters and hopefully work as a vet tech unless I go straight into being a mother. I will be excited with either outcome.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the LDS Church all my life, so I don't have what one would usually think of as a conversion story, but in reality, we all have a conversion of some sort sometime in our lives. We believe that we all must continually be building our testimonies of Christ and this gospel. So, honestly, I am still in the process of being truly converted to the Gospel of Christ. I do know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smith was a great prophet called of God to translate the book. I know this because I have felt the holy spirit testify to me the truthfulness of the doctrines of this gospel while reading the Book of Mormon, the testimony of Joseph Smith, and other teachings of this church. I now cannot deny this knowledge any more than Joseph could a midst being persecuted and tortured for not denying what he saw and did.

How I live my faith

Growing up, my family and I actively attended church every possible Sunday of my life. As a youth (age 12 to 18) I participated in the youth program, even serving in leadership positions over my peers. When I came to college, I started serving in adult callings including visiting teaching in which I simply helped watch over the well being of the fellow women in the church in the area (ward). Now, being married, I had the opportunity to teach 11-year-olds at church about our gospel. It was wonderful to answer their questions and teach them more about the gospel in which they are growing up in.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is simply a statement of any part of our gospel which the individual giving the testimony sincerely knows to be true. Show more Show less
