Hi I'm Megan Reeve

I was a gymnast. I was a college student. I'm a wife. I'm a stay at home mother of four. I was and still am, a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mom of four. When I am not taking care of the kids and the house, I like to play volleyball, dance, journal our families activities which I then turn into a book at the end of the year, read and spend time with my husband working on projects, watching "our" TV shows, mapping out our next big weightloss/maintenance plan, or enjoying his out of the box date night ideas.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up "Mormon" probably has a lot to do with why I am the way I am. However, there comes a time when you have to know for yourself. I found out for myself when I was a teenager. It wasn't so much one life changing moment but numerous experiences of answers to prayers, promptings from the Holy Ghost and a witness that what I was doing was right and good. I believed strongly enough to serve an 18 month mission for the church in Argentina where I had to learn a new language and culture. I learned there the kind of joy that comes from obedience. I felt so happy sometimes that my cheeks hurt from smiling. I continue to do the things that I believe Heavenly Father wants me to do and I continue to feel the Holy Ghost warm my heart and enlighten my mind. When I feel less strong in my conviction, I can always go back to a time where I know Heavenly Father was mindful of me. He has always led me to where I needed to be and I can see His hand in my life. At the end of the day, I cling to what I know, hold on to hope, and have faith in the rest.

How I live my faith

My faith is a part of my everyday life. We pray at meals, have a special family meeting on Mondays where we pray, sing, and learn how to become more like Jesus, and read scriptures and pray as a family every night. We clean the church (on a rotating schedule), feed the missionaries (young church representatives) dinner about once a month, and I visit and share a message with three women in their homes on a regular basis to make sure they are ok and to build relationships. I attend cub scout committee meetings and pack meetings. I create short lessons for children ages 3-12 and help conduct their Sunday meetings along with organizing their classes and teachers. I write a special program that is performed by the children once a year to share with the congregation what they have learned through song and word. I help organize an activity once a year for the whole church and their friends and families. I help and encourage my children to participate in weekly or biweekly meetings held especially for them. As a family, we try to participate in service projects that will benefit our community.
