Hi I'm Megan

I am a Certified Medical Assistant. I was a member of Student Council. Im serving a mission in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Im a Mormon.

About Me

In high school I played volleyball, sang in the choir, was a member of the Student Council and attended early morning seminary. I enjoyed being involved and getting to meet and work with so many different kinds of people. While I attended High School, I grew to understand the importance of education. My Junior year I began a medical program. My Senior year I attended early morning seminary, my regular high school classes as well as an additional 5 hour Medical Assisting course which allowed me to become certified by graduation. I have found great joy in working hard and receive great blessing for doing so. As a young women I had so many fun opportunities to strengthen myself physically, spiritually and mentally. We hiked the Grand Canyon, climbed the highest peak in Arizona, participated in a pioneer trek, and camped multiple times. The experiences and opportunities I've had, is and will continue to bless my life as I prepare to serve a mission in Bolivia. I am excited to use what Heavenly Father has taught me over the years to teach His precious children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know with no doubt that the Savior lives. That the Atonement of Jesus Christ is vital in this mortal life as well as in the eternities, that through it we may fulfill God's great plan for us. It is such a blessing to know where I came from, why Im here, and where Im going. I believe in the Restoration of the gospel. That Joseph Smith witnessed our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ, and organized the complete gospel back to the earth. I love the Book of Mormon and know that the words contained in that book are God's words, and that as we study and ponder them we will be directed in all our ways. This life is difficult but, there is no greater protection and nothing that can bring us greater joy than living Jesus Christ's gospel. Its True!

How I live my faith

I have always enjoyed serving people around me and being an example through the way I live my life. I believe the greatest way to share the gospel and our beliefs is by simply living them. As a member of my High School Student Council, I was really able to live my standards and beliefs for many to see. It is very important to me to always live the standards God gives us to the highest degree, it became a great strength to me, and a great example to those around me, especially when I was put in difficult and trying positions. For example, we were preparing for a school spirit assembly. The student council prepared a dance and as we practiced I noticed that the music and dance moves were not very appropriate. On the day of the assembly I felt uncomfortable and had an internal battle going on inside my head. These were my friends, I did not want to hurt their feelings, what harm would it cause by participating in the dance? I then thought about the girls in my young women's class, seminary students, and those that knew me and knew what I believed in. They would be watching. I considered telling my friends in student council that I wasn't feeling good and therefore could not dance. But, knew that I could not do that either, they needed to know why, whether they would be mad or hurt. I could not deny the standards I had been taught and knew that I had to stand up for Heavenly Father just as He has for me. My friends were not upset when I told them, but knew that, that was what I believed. After the assembly, many young women, other youth, teachers, classmates that are not of my faith, acknowledged me for my decision to not participate in the dance. I felt good, and knew that I lived my faith by that one choice, which in turn affected so many people.
