Hi I'm Megan

I'm a dreamer, dancer, student, daughter, and sister. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an ordinary girl who is on an ever exhilarating journey to finding herself. I'm a college student and plan on studying American Sign Language so I can one day become an ASL Interpreter. I love spending my time cooking, gardening, riding my bike, running, doing yoga, writing letters to my missionaries, sewing, learning, creating, and reading. I have wonderful friends and a loving family who support me in all that I do! I often daydream about my future and look forward to becoming a wife and a mother!

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be raised in the gospel, but it has not always been easy to remain a strong and valiant Saint. Although I can't claim to have strong church membership in my blood, I can say that I have a testimony that will never be compromised. In the span of my life I have had to teach myself and develop a testimony of my own because there was never another really strong one for me to rely on. Even though it has not been an easy road, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I have had to rely on my sheer faith for so many years in hopes that one day, I would find out why I was doing it. I am thrilled to say that I have found out! I know that my Savior, Jesus Christ, loves me more than I could ever imagine. I know that I am a beautiful daughter of God who is destined for greatness and was placed on earth for a reason. I have a loving Heavenly Father who watches over me and wants, with everything He has, for me to find my way back to Him. My testimony is comprised of so much more, but those few points are what really matter. I am so incredibly blessed to have that knowledge and I want nothing more than for each person I meet to have that same knowledge and happiness that I have because of it!

How I live my faith

I love serving people and making others happy. I am a part of a service committee in my ward and look forward to all of the opportunities I will have serving my neighbors! I believe that service is one of the best ways to open up your heart and to become closer friends with the amazing people around us. But, in the midst of a busy student life, my absolute favorite way of sharing the gospel is through social media. It takes two minutes out of my day to share something that I found uplifting and has impacted my life, in hopes that at least one person will feel the same way. I always strive to be a good example to the people around me and to be a light that is always available when someone needs help. I have been blessed with so much and I want others to know just how beautiful life is!

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

For me, literally everything on earth tells me that there is a God. The world, especially in nature, is far too complex and perfect for it to just "happen!" As I learn more about how everything works together on the earth, the more my testimony is strengthened that an infinitely loving Heavenly Father designed and directed His Son, Jesus Christ, in creating this incredible place for His children to live. So to me, everything is just too perfect to be just happenstance. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is a compilation of years and years of special, personal experiences and the lessons and knowledge that come from them. It is a summation of everything we know to be true, including, but absolutely not limited to, Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ's atonement, ancient prophets, modern-day prophets, our living prophet, the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith, commandments, and the list could go on and on! As we learn more and increase our knowledge of the gospel and earnestly pray to our Heavenly Father to confirm to us the truth of those things, the Holy Ghost gently tells us that it is real and that it is true! Those awesome experiences, whether they be big or small, slowly build our testimony and make it strong enough to withstand any trial or difficulty we may face. Show more Show less
