Hi I'm Megan Dees

I'm from the great sunshine state. I'm a convert. I love to sing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm at the great age of 16 and in love with the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love to read. I'm pretty sure you could name a book and I would have already read it. There's always some sort of exciting ride in every book, and I seem to be the one to get caught up. I love to sing. Hey, mostly to myself, in the shower, but who can blame me? That's the best time. I'm quiet.... until you get to know me. Then you can't shut me up, and after that I definitely know how to speak my mind. But that's all just tiny bits, because the part I am most proud of is that I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm constantly asked this question. "Why are you Mormon?" "Why'd you change your religion?" "Why couldn't you just be like your other family and stay with them at church?" And I can answer that. I am a Mormon because I know this is the true church of Christ and it has been restored back to this Earth for us. I know with every fiber in my being that this is the path Heavenly Father wants me (you?) to be on. I'm a Mormon because ever since I found out the church was true I have had a fire in my heart for the Savior that never seems to stop, and I love it. I'm a Mormon because ever since I was baptized a hole in my heart was filled that I never knew was empty. I can testify to you that I know our Savior lives. I know that the prophet Joseph Smith, with guidance from Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, helped restore the true church of Christ on the Earth we are standing on today. I know our Heavenly Father loves me, just as much as he loves you. I know that he is OUR Heavenly Father. He isn't strictly mine, or even your next door neighbors, He is YOURS. He loves you. I've been called many names in life, some good, some bad, but the name I am most proud of, is Mormon.

How I live my faith

Teenagers live their faith in ways they don't even recognize sometimes. I mostly live my faith by family history. Being the first convert in my family, there is this strong pulling from my heart that directs me to do temple work and find my family. Knowing I have the opportunity and resources to bring the joy and happiness I feel to my family is the most wonderful feeling in the world. It definitely helps knowing I'm doing our Heavenly Fathers work!
