Hi I'm Megan

I can boogie to any jam. I enjoy playing the trumpet and making collages. I do what makes me happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey y'all! My name is Megan and as you can probably guess, I live in Texas (Houston area, to be more specific). However, I was born in Louisiana and have previously lived in Virginia, Kansas, Dallas, Nevada, and Hawaii. Soon, I will live in the heart of South America, Paraguay. I will be living there as a missionary. I am so excited for this opportunity. I attended school for a year at BYU-Hawaii in pursuit of a degree in bio-medical sciences; I aspire to teach and provide healthcare to people in less developed nations. While in school, I worked at the Polynesian Cultural Center, played trumpet in the school's brass ensemble, and hung out with people from all over! Since leaving school and coming back home, I have been working at a dentist office. Besides working, I love to listen to music of all kinds, make collages, and attend any activity I can! My life is not perfect but I have learned to be happy no matter what the circumstance.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in this church. My mom's side of the family is full of members. However, my dad is not a member. This has been hard for me in the past but not so much anymore. I have realized that he must find out for himself. I cannot force him to believe; Heavenly Father blessed us with the freedom to choose. I am a Mormon because I have read and prayed about the Book of Mormon. I know it is true and I could never deny it. Being Mormon does not mean my life is perfect; it means that even when life gets hard, I can have hope. Being Mormon is a part of who I am and it makes me happy.

How I live my faith

Right now, I attend the local YSA (young single adult) branch. On Monday, we have Family Home Evening together which usually includes a lesson, an activity, and then either volleyball, basketball, or soccer until we realize we've been playing for waaaaaay too long haha. On Thursday, we have a class called Institute. This class has been a HUGE part of me preparing for my mission. There is so much to learn. Then, of course, on Sunday I go to church. During the first hour (Sacrament Meeting), I lead the music. It is always fun to look out and watch everyone sing. Sometimes, if I'm lucky, I get to teach the women as we meet together.
