Hi I'm Morgan

I'm nerdy, crafty, and Autistic, and I know why I'm here.

About Me

Hi! I'm Morgan. I'm a very creative person, and I love making things with my hands. From drawing to sewing to making Medieval-style chain mail armor, I'm always busy! I like to draw comics, and I even keep up a small series of comics online. Anything that can be made, crafted, or sewn, I've tried, learned, or plan to in the future. I also have a disorder known as Aspergers Syndrome- a mild form of Autism. Over the course of my life so far, I've taken the time to try and help other people with disorders, and help them realize that there's so much they have to offer. I think sometimes they tend to forget that because they're different, they can offer a wonderfully new and fresh perspective on everything. I'm currently serving in the Washington Seattle Mission, and will be until 2016. I'm beyond happy that, despite my disorder, I get the opportunity to serve the Lord. I'm thankful every day of my life for the blessing it brings to both me and my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy. There's no other way to put it. Nothing on this earth has ever given me as much happiness as this church. No matter what happens to me, I will always be taken care of here. Even through the awful struggles of clinical depression, social disorders, and general struggles in my life, this church has helped me feel better. Every Sunday, my week just brightens. I feel refreshed, clean, and infinitely better. Even if just the day before I was sobbing uncontrollably and on the brink of giving up. This church, and following its teachings, is what has gotten me through. I would not be here this day. I would not be serving a mission. I would not be so invested in this church if I did not know for a fact that it was true. I'm a Mormon, because there's nothing else that can give me this happiness. Nothing.

How I live my faith

Right now, I'm living my faith by accepting a call to serve a mission. I'm spending every hour, minute, and second to serve the Lord. It's hard. It's especially difficult with my Aspergers. Every moment of talking to strangers, sharing my beliefs, and being around all of those people watching me is a challenge. I know, however, that this is where I need to be. I live my faith by doing the most terrifying thing I can think of. I know I can do it through the Lord. I know that the Lord will bless me because of it. I also know that the Lord will bless anyone else who's willing to sacrifice for him. I live my faith every day as a missionary. I hope I can do my best for him.
