Hi I'm Meagan

I am a student. I am a future missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Washington, which is the state of rain. The good thing about the rain is that everything is green here and beautiful. I go to BYU-Idaho and I don’t know what I’m going to major in. So I’m enjoying life while it goes on. One of my things that I love do is to dance. I was involved in color guard for my high school. For my family there is eight of us. There are six kids and I’m the third youngest. I’m the first one to go on a mission in my family out of the kids. I will be serving a 18 month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Missouri Independence Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my whole life and was baptized when I was eight. I was taught the principles of the church and followed my parents like a good girl. I didn't know why I wanted to be Mormon until my High Years. My freshmen year I went through hard times. I started reading my scriptures because I was in seminary, but then I realizes how much much I needed my Heavenly Father that year. I found out that year he made me into a better person. By reading my scripture every day helped me have more purpose in my life. That year I started living the gospel for myself. I have found my motivation, and a solid foundation on which to build my life of purpose and personal growth. It is a constant source of confidence, a true and faithful companion during good times and bad. My testimony provided me with a reason for hope and gladness. My testimony motivated me to choose the right at all times and in all circumstances. It motivates me to draw nearer to God, allowing Him to draw nearer to me.

How I live my faith

While I was at BYU-Idaho college I was asked to teach a class of girls that came to church. There were four teachers for the class and we took turns teaching. So once a month I would prepare the lesson for the class. This gave me the chance to help the girls and myself grow more closer to our Heavenly Father. Even though I didn't really want to teach the girls because I was shy, I liked it more than I thought I would have. Being able to teach the girls helped me take in the principles of the lesson and to really understand and become a better person. In my life right now I will be serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for 18 months. Where I leave my family and friends all behind to serve the Lord and teach others about his gospel. I'm so happy to serve.
