Hi I'm Megan Prior

I live in the UK and love writing and music. I'm a Mormon. This is not surprising information, on mormon.org.

About Me

I'm Megan, and despite being an avid procrastinator, I enjoy learning new things. I also love any opportunity to be on stage, singing and shouting and being a tiny, manic ball of enthusiasm, or acting as a leader- singing, shouting and being a tiny, manic ball of enthusiasm. I love reading and writing, and hope to study Literature at University. If I wasn't currently a teenager, I'm sure I'd also be an avid traveler. I have a moderately large and crazy family whom I love to pieces. I'm also very lucky to have a wonderful group of friends, and most of my time is spent traveling on trains to see them. While I love my phone, it is nothing compared to seeing people face to face.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon family, so I've attended church all my life. For the first 12 years of my short life, I was attending mostly because my parents were going. Secondary school and other things began to make me question whether I truly believed, and if being a Mormon was what I really wanted. Over the past few years I have studied, prayed, and put my all my efforts into finding out the answers to these questions. Simply put, I am Mormon because I believe. I am Mormon because I love the gospel. I am Mormon because I know it is the True Church. I have found the answers I was looking for, and I'm so excited to see what life has in store.

How I live my faith

I am in a tiny branch in Wales, where for many years I was the only teenage girl. I've been very blessed in having wonderful leaders and teachers to give me the strength I needed to get up and go to Church, despite being the only young person. I love teaching, and I'm over the moon when I get the opportunity to teach the other young women and leaders. Every year, all the teenage girls in the area meet together for one week and go camping. It's organised by the leaders, with the help of the older girls. I'm very grateful to have attended as both a young woman and a leader. Helping to organize and run the camp is the highlight of my year. I'm able to teach lessons, run activities, and help the younger girls come out of their shells and have fun. I usually achieve this with a mud fight. All shyness goes out the window when a mud fight is involved. I think everyone has a time where they feel as if they've hit a brick wall, and for a while I felt there was no getting past it. I'm very happy to say I've managed to scale the wall like Batman, and subsequently blow up the wall from the other side. That metaphor took an odd turn but hopefully it expresses my meaning. Without the gospel, I'd still very much be on the wrong side of the wall.
