Hi I'm Morgan

I am a full time college student who just received her mission call and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college freshman going into elementary education. I just received my mission call to the South Dakota Rapid City mission. I am a lover of all things Disney. I love musicals Les Mis and Phantom of the Opera are two of my favorites. I am the oldest and have two little brothers who I just adore.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the personal love He has for me. I am a Mormon because of the blessings I receive as I keep the commandments. I know the commandments are meant to guide us safely and bring us home to our loving Father in Heaven. I am a Mormon because I can be with my family forever and nothing can separate us not even death. I am a Mormon because I know I am a daughter of God who owns to delight and bless me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through daily prayer and scripture study. I try to lift others up and love them the way the Savior would. I attend the temple once a week and perform proxy work for family members names that I have found through family history work. I try to live each day in a way the Savior would but a big part of how I live my faith is through daily repentance. I am not perfect but with the Atonement I may be perfected through Him.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

The Atonement is a sacred thing that we can be blessed with each day. As Mormons we believe that Jesus Christ atoned for all of our sins. Before he was crucified He spent an evening in the Garden of Gethsemane where he atoned for each of us personally. He felt every pain, sorrow, and joy we would ever feel in this life. Because of that he is able to fully understand how we well. The Atonement also made it possible for us to repent of our sins and become clean each day. We don't have to have the guilt of sins weighing us down if we turn to the Savior and ask him to remove that from us. I am grateful for the Savior and His sacrifice. Show more Show less
