Hi I'm Megan.

I'm a wife. I'm a mom. I'm a foodie. And, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom to three young boys. I graduated from college with a degree in Health Sciences. I found my passion for cooking and food after I was married. I am committed to healthy habits, healthy eating and education. Because when you feel good and you are active, you have the freedom to help others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family, and grew up going to Church. My testimony came in little pieces throughout my life. I have felt so strongly my Heavenly Father's love for me through trials, both physical and spiritual. I know that He is aware of my daily actions and thoughts. Through questions I have prayed about and life experiences that I have had, answers have come from Him. I can't imagine what life would be like without the comfort of my Savior and the hope that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings.

How I live my faith

As a mom, I spend most of my time with my children. I try to teach them the things that I have come to know are true. This means that a lot of our conversations are gospel centered. We try to find answers to the children's questions together in the scriptures, and we teach them to pray.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

In 1833, the prophet Joseph Smith received a revelation from God that was counsel for the health of those within His church. This revelation contained things that they should and should not do and put into their bodies. Among the things that we are told not to put into our bodies are "strong and hot drinks." Further revelation to the prophet said that strong drinks were defined as alcohol or liquor, and hot drinks were defined as coffee or tea. Show more Show less
