Hi I'm Megan

I'm 21, a returned missionary, poor university student, a gymnastics coach for kids, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Growing up in the same city, same household, I quickly discovered the thrill of exploring and traveling. I strongly believe life IS meant to be joyous, and I think visiting new places and meeting new people is an easy way to do just that. I had the opportunity to serve as a missionary for the church for a year and a half in Japan; an experience I hope to never forget. Serving others is the quickest way to put a smile on my face. I consider serving a broad definition- making someone laugh is included in that sense.😉 I'm currently studying international relations at BYU-I, with hopes of working overseas. I grew up in a diverse city, and I've seen the blessings of that time and time again. Loving people, no matter what, an attribute Jesus the Christ possess, and taught while he walked on the earth. While it isn't the easiest thing to do, I firmly believe is among the most important things we can develop- charity✨

Why I am a Mormon

For every reason under the sun- but to emphasize one reason alone, the amount of joy that come from knowing who you are, and why you are here, is unparalleled. It brings happiness, and peace like you wouldn't believe. Knowing with everything you are, that there is more to being alive has changed me. God loves me. He knows me. He has a plan for me and everyone else on this Earth. It's a feeling that can't be explained

How I live my faith

Adapting and learning new ideas is essential, but holding on firmly to the things you believe in will prevent downfall. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has been a rock for me. Whenever I begin to doubt or lose my way, I am always brought back to the things I know and believe

What is being a Mormon like?

The greatest thing imaginable. Hope and joy all bundled in one gospel. Show more Show less

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon temples? What goes on in Mormon temples?

It isn't enough to be baptized to be considered worthy to enter the House of the Lord. We believe temples to be some of the most sacred places on Earth. In order to enter the temple, you must prepare your heart and your soul. "Secret" makes it seem like we are hiding something, but it is rather we are not allowing the ways of the world to disgrace what is holy. In the temple we learn eternal truths that further increase our knowledge of the gospel, we receive sacred ordinances including sealings which binds families together for eternity, and provide ordinances for those who weren't given the opportunity on Earth to fulfill.
