Hi I'm Megan

I live in Mapleton, Ut. I love ice cream, dancing, and sleeping. I'm proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

For the past year I have been working at TURN Community Services and participating in the Pathways Program through BYUI. I have completely saved for my mission and successfully completed the Pathways Program. I love this gospel and the feeling of love that it brings. I love being proactive and just being outside. I also love to dance, sing, and listen to music. I want to serve a mission because of the joy it brings me when I serve and teach others about the love our Savior has for each of His children.

Why I am a Mormon

When my Mom passed away in 2012 I hit a wall of disbelief. I refused believe that if God loved me He would not take my mom away because I had faithfully prayed for her to get better. Born into a strong LDS family I would go to church only because it was required of me not because I wanted to. About three months after my moms passing, I was in my room just roaming around on Youtube. I came across a video of a family who had left the church and they were giving their reasons why they had left. I watched it thinking that maybe this video would make my decision on whether I stayed in the church or not. I got about 5 minutes in when I felt hot tears race down my face. At that moment, I knew that I needed to ask my Heavenly Father for myself to know whether or not this church was true. I got down on my knees and with all of my trust and faith in the Lord, asked Him if this is the true church. Immediately I was overcome with peace and warmth. It was as though my mom was right there embracing me. I was able to authentically feel my Saviors love for me personally. I know for certain that this gospel is the true gospel. I knew and I knew God knew it, and I can not deny it.

How I live my faith

I have been going to a YSA ward since June of 2016. It was definitely a different experience going to YSA versus my Family ward, but I have grown to love the people in my ward. I am currently serving as a member of the Linger Longer committee, just until I leave on my mission in September. In the past i have served as a Beehive president, Miamaid 1st Couselor, Miamaid President, Laurel President, and Laurel 2nd Couselor.
