Hi I'm Meg

I'm a college student with a passion for language. I love fine ice cream and the rain. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a university student loving the brain-twisting beauty of classic literature and foreign languages. I grew up learning Spanish at a bilingual school, and now have also studied French, Italian, and Russian. I am currently learning Romanian as I prepare to serve a mission in Romania and Moldova. In my free time, I love to read, write, cook, and practice archery. Also, I have a weakness for sci-fi television and British dramas.

Why I am a Mormon

We all have moments of doubt, darkness, and pain. Being a member of this church is what helps me overcome those hard times. My belief in Jesus Christ gives me hope and happiness, during the good times and the struggles. I have seen the blessings that come from living the teachings of His church. I have studied those teachings, and they make me feel whole. The times in my life when I have lived the gospel most fully are the times that I have felt most confident, loved, and truly myself. I have undeniably felt the guidance of the Lord in my life. That is a beautiful gift I never want to lose.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to love everyone the way Jesus did. When I am focused on helping others, rather than myself, I am much happier. Life is hard! But daily prayer and scripture study help me stay close to God, and allow Him to guide me . He knows more than I do, and I trust His plan will bring more joy than mine ever could. Striving to follow His plan has brought me to the decision to serve a full-time mission. In August, I will leave for the România/Moldova Mission. I am so excited for this opportunity to devote my life more fully to the Lord, experience a new culture, and serve the wonderful people across the world!

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Meg
In legal terms, a testimony is a statement of what you believe happened in a situation. Witnesses are usually called upon in court to give testimony. Similarly, our religious testimony is the belief we hold deep in our hearts about Jesus Christ and His church. Sometimes those beliefs are very strong, and sometimes they are just beginning to develop. Either way, our testimonies are strengthened by the Holy Spirit. He acts as a witness of truth, and His influence can be felt by all. When we sincerely ask God if something is true, He answers us through the Holy Spirit. Questions about Jesus Christ, the Church, modern-day prophets, and anything else can be answered in this way. Show more Show less
