Hi I'm Megan

I have lived in Utah my whole life and have grown up LDS. I recently just got my mission call to Nagoya Japan. I am so excited!

About Me

I just finished my first year of college and I cannot wait to continue my education after my mission in Japan. I love to learn and try new things. Some of my hobbies and interests include singing, country swing dancing, rock climbing, dirt biking, kayaking, camping, and pretty much anything outdoors! Ways that I relax or relieve stress are going on a run, taking a walk outside, reading a good book, or listening to good music. I love to be around people and make new friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a Mormon. I do, however, have the agency to continue being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I choose to continue being a member because of the many miracles I have witnessed and the great feeling of love that I have felt. The message that the Gospel brings is full of hope and it brings me great joy. I honestly cannot imagine not having this Gospel in my life because of all the wonderful things I have learned and the love that I have felt. I know that I have a purpose and I know what I can do to continue progressing in life. I know that we can always improve and progress because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Because of what our Savior has done for each and every one of us, we are able to be forgiven of our sins. We can be made clean again from any mistakes we have made. We do not have to live in our guilt for our entire life because we can repent and become better. This brings so much hope to my life. I also know that I am never alone in my sufferings. We have a Father in Heaven who knows exactly what we are going through and I know that we can kneel down in prayer and speak to Him whenever we need to. I also know that our Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ knows exactly what we feel because he performed the Atonement. He suffered everything that we will ever suffer and he experienced everything we will ever experience. There is nothing that He has not felt. We are never alone. I know we can turn to our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ for help and comfort and I know that they will send us a feeling of peace. We just need to trust in God's timing. He knows what is best for us. I am so grateful to be a member of this church and I cannot wait to continue to grow in my faith and in my testimony.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service. I have been a visiting teacher where I visit other women in my ward and find ways I can serve them. Service is a great way to live my faith because it helps others to feel love and brings me great happiness, which is what this Gospel is all about. I am constantly trying to find ways to serve those around me and to help them to feel of my love as well as God's love. I will be going on a LDS mission where I will be serving the people of Nagoya Japan and teaching them what I believe in. I cannot wait to share the joys that this Gospel brings!
