Hi I'm Megan

I'm a Mormon, via a long path through several other Christian denominations but this is where I feel truly at home.

About Me

I'm a wife and mother, I work in a university Computer Science department - my specialism's e-learning - and my hobbies include the study of world medals and role-playing games. Whatever I get up to, I throw myself into it with great enthusiasm.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon almost by chance. My daughter was sleeping over with a friend on a Saturday night, and went with her to church the next morning. After a few weeks of her going round to her friend on Sundays to attend church, the friend was away for the weekend so she asked for a ride down... so I went in and felt at home straight away. When she had her baptismal lessons, I sat in and decided that it was for me too - the final thing was the member who was sitting in saying that he'd like to call me 'Sister' one day (I asked that he baptise me!). Now I bring extensive knowledge of the Bible gained as a Methodist lay preacher to the study of the restored truth, and revel in a church where Scripture study is central to our worship.

How I live my faith

It's central to everything I do - at church I teach and speak, in day-to-day life I live according to gospel principles and talk about what I believe to those who are interested.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Megan
The reason I tithe is twofold. Firstly, it is asked of me as a member of the Church and I strive to be obedient. Secondly, all things, all that I have, come from my Heavenly Father so it is only right that a proportion of what I have received through His bounty be returned to be used according to His will. It has been promised that He will pour out blessings from heaven on the faithful - and He does! Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Megan
Joyful! That's it in a nutshell. Men are, that we might have joy - and we surely do. It is wonderful to love and be loved, both within our families and by our brothers and sisters in church, and above all by our Heavenly Father. I literally bask in the warmth of His love. Show more Show less

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Megan
Saint Paul wrote to Timothy, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15) - possibly my favourite Scripture. I read the Scriptures every day, having formed the habit of reading online as the first thing I do each day when I sit down at the computer (which, being a computer scientist, I do every day!). Often there's something that speaks to what I'm doing or what is going on, but always there is the comfort of eternal truths shared with us, available for everyone to avail themselves of the Good News of Jesus Christ.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Megan
Our Heavenly Father, like any loving parent, wants the best for His children. Families are important and work best when parents love one another and love their children. This is so obvious that I've never had a problem with keeping the Law of Chastity long before I became a Mormon - and I was married and had a child long before I accepted baptism into the church. I love my husband and have eyes for no other men, and never had since I first met him. Thirty-one years later we are still blissfully in love, content that our union is blessed by our Heavenly Father.. and with a wonderful daughter. Show more Show less
