Hi I'm Meeka

I grew up in Idaho. I serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Washington DC. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I just finished my freshman year in college. I love to sing, ballroom dance, and do anything outdoors. In my family there are over twenty nieces and nephews and I love them all. My senior year of high school I was the senior class president, held a beauty pageant title, and went to China for my dance group.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the light and joy that this gospel brings to me and to others around me. I was born into this church and all of my life I was taught the principles of this gospel and they have always rang true to me. I continue to participate because I know of the truthfulness of this gospel which has been confirmed by the Holy Spirit. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he did translate the Book of Mormon. I also know that our Father in Heaven loves each one of us and that He always answers our prayers, when it is the best for us. As I was preparing to go on my mission the oral doctors found a suspicious spot in my jaw which they thought it could be cancerous. My family and I prayed and prayed that if it would be His will, the spot in my jaw would not be cancerous. When I went in for the surgery they discovered that it was just a hole in my jaw and that if something was there it was not there anymore. I know that our prayers were answered and that my Heavenly Father is mindful of me. However, not everyone has miracles like this in their lives. Many people suffer from cancer, disease, the death of loved ones, mental health, and so many more trials everyday. Our Father has a plan for us and we need to be able to recognize the good in our trials, discover what it is that we need to learn, and trust that everything will be alright in the end. I love my Heavenly Father and my Savior, Jesus Christ, and I say these things in His name. Amen.

How I live my faith

I love the people who are in my ward and community. I have visit taught some amazing women in my ward and I have also taught lessons in class at my college ward. I am also serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
