Hi I'm Megan

I love dancing, music, and being outdoors. I am a missionary in the Texas McAllen Mission! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah and love being in the mountains where you can hike and explore. Dancing is one of my favorite things to do; I danced all throughout high school and continued by doing Zumba in college. I completed one year of college at SLCC before leaving to serve a full time mission in Southern Texas. I love learning, and having fun!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true. I also know that without it, I would not be who I am today. The knowledge I have of my Heavenly Father keeps me going and makes life worth living. I love my savior and know that He died for all of us individually, and He knows exactly what we're going through, what I'm going through, and He helps me through all of it. I know that Joseph Smith restored the church on the earth today, and that he was a true prophet of God. I know that he saw God the father, and Jesus Christ. I know the Book of Mormon is true, and that that book is also a source of peace and comfort and learning. If you have any questions in life, that book will answer them. I know that my Heavenly Father is just a prayer away, and I am greatful that I have been taught how to communicate with Him. I know that my family will be forever, and this is a great blessing in my life.

How I live my faith

There are three really good ways to not only live our faith, but also strengthen it. The first is prayer. I make sure that I pray every morning and every night. When I pray I am aligning my will to my fathers and asking for His help each day to do the things He wants me to. Then I go throughout the day looking for ways to do those things. Second is scripture study. I try to read my scriptures every day. Life gets busy and time is definitely short, but even if you just read one verse you are receiving much needed help and guidance from Heavenly Father that you need to make it through the trials of life. If you want to speak to Heavenly Father pray, if you want Him to speak to you, read your scriptures! He definitely speaks to you by more ways then one, but what better way to find His words then search for them yourselves. Third is attending church every Sunday. I love going to church each Sunday. It's the best way to recharge your batteries and gain the strength you need for the whole week. Also, if you are lost and in need of answers, He will answer you through the things people share in church, the classes you go to, the prayers that are said, and the songs that are sung. I know this because its definitely happened all throughout my life. Right now I am living my faith by being a missionary in the Texas McAllen Mission! Each day I get to talk to many people and share with them the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I get to help them along the path to eternal happiness. There is nothing better than being in the service of God.
