Hi I'm megan

I grew up I'm cedar hills Utah, I taught children English in Lithuania. and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up lds with my family of 10 people. we have a really good relationship, we are all es bothers best friends. we lived in Utah for most of my life. my family moved to Virginia when I was 18 and right after that I left my family to live in Lithuania for 4 months while I taught English to little kids. I missed my family a lot and I wish they could have come with me. it was a lot if fun and I miss all those kids. after that I came home to Virginia and I didn't know anything, I got lost trying to get out of our subdivision for a long time. when I found work I was one of 2 Mormons that worked here and I had to defend my faith a lot. I made a lot of really good friends there and I miss them too. I'm about to go on a mission and I'm nervous but really excited. I know my faith will grow and I hope I can help others be as happy as I have been in my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church. it was something that was just part of my growing up. I don't think I realized exactly what it meant to be lds till much later in my life. when I had to defend my beliefs, and my right to have and act upon those beliefs. I realized that I was just going off my mothers testimony and that I had never really truly developed one of my own. I had a job that required me to work on Sundays. I had to decide if it was worth it to me to work on Sundays even though it was a good job that helped others. I prayed about it and tried to notice how I felt when I was working in Sundays. I remember always feeling sad. I was in a bad mood and I couldn't feel the spirit. I kept that job until I moved to Utah. but I realized then that I care about this religion. not just because it's what my family believed in. but because it was worth it to me. it is what I believe in. and it continues to be worth it to me to feel good and the strength I get from living this gospel is amazing and I wouldn't be able to make it anywhere and be happy with out it.

How I live my faith

when I was young I was a youth leader and I helped organize activities and make sure that all the young women had everything they needed spiritually and physically. that was a really hard job and I didn't always understand what it was that I was doing. it wasn't till later as I grew and matured that I realized what I was doing for those girls that I was supposed to help. when I moved to Virginia I received a calling that I didn't want. I wish I could go back and magnify the calling I was given. so I could help the people that The Lord had asked me to help. now I am going on a mission in a little bit. and I feel like I have learned from my failures and successes. I hope I can be a good missionary and that I will grow some more and be able to help all the people The Lord has prepared for me, and prepared me for.
