Hi I'm Megan

I eat beans and rice all day, I think happily, and I´m a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 20 and I am serving a mission in the beautiful city Oaxaca, located in Mexico! I love the outdoors, running, hiking, camping, and the list goes on. I have a great appreciation for music and the arts. I try to attend every concert or show that comes to my little town. I live in Utah but I have traveled all over. Two years ago I had the opportunity to go to Peru on a humanitarian mission and it was the best experience of my life! It allowed me to do what I love most which is helping and laughing with others!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I mormon? I spent a long time thinking about this question and the real answer is because it gives me hope. Hope that God loves me and knows me. Hope that He cares about me and tries to help me. It gives me Hope that I have a potential far greater that this world knows and that He is there to help me reach it. I have the hope that I can be someone better each day of my life. Hope that I can change. And I have the absolute hope that one day I will be infinite and be able to live with Him and like He lives one day. I am Mormon because I believe that familes are established so that we can love one another for the time we have on this earth but also for all of eternity. I am Mormon because I believe God still exists and lives, and that He talks to us each personally and generally through His prophets, scriptures, and Holy Spirit. I am a Mormon because I believe in Jesus Christ, I believe He died for me and paid my debt. I believe that He loves me and invites me to follow Him and His example and has offered me His gospel and His blood to support and forgive me as I try. And I believe that now I have the responsiblity to move my feet and walk the path He showed as I obey and live what He truly has taught. Life isn´t easy. We all face trials and we all go through hard moments of doubt but as I hope and believe in the GREAT plan our Father in Heaven has for us I come to know that, as I rely on Him and His commandments, I have a capacity far greater than I thought to overcome all the dirty this life kicks at me.This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I think the best way I live my faith is by showing those around me that I care for them. There is a great quote that says, " People pay very little attention to what you say about your religion-they're too busy watching what you do about it." That is so true! The LDS religion is so amazing and it focuses so much on the love that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for us here and the best way for me to show that this is what I believe in is to live as They would, by giving service and love to those around me!
