Hi I'm Megan

I'm from Arizona. I wish I could quote scripture as well as I quote movies. Im serving a mission in Portland Oregon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest in my family of seven. I have always been actively involved in sports. I swam all through high school and ran track for two years. I was a member of a community service club called GC105, I was a committee leader of Invisible Children--planning and hosting events in order to raise money and awareness of the child soldiers in Africa led by Kony. I love art and music. I just finished my freshman year at Brigham Young University-Idaho. February 13th of 2015, I received my call to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have now been out 9 months serving in the Oregon Portland Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for simple reasons. Being an active member of the church makes me happy and has blessed my life more than words could say. I know that families can be together forever. I am grateful for the guidance of the Book of Mormon. I am thankful for the gift of the Holy Spirit, for his comfort and inspiration to do good in the world. I was born into the church and baptized at eight years old. My older sister just finished serving a full time mission in Moscow, Russia. Her example influenced me to serve and spread the good word. I know Jesus Christ suffered for our sins. He died so that we could live. Because of Him we have the Atonement, in which we are able to repent of our sins and be forgiven, so that we can return to live with our Heavenly Father and our brother Jesus Christ once again. I know that none of us are perfect, we all make mistakes, big or small, but we can strive to be Christ-like each day. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel. I know Thomas S. Monson is the one and only true prophet on the earth today. I know that as we live be the standards of the church, keep the commandments, and strive to be like Christ, that we will also become great examples to others. I am grateful to be serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Portland Oregon. I know that as I serve others I am serving the Lord.

How I live my faith

I love serving others in any way that I can.
