A First For Me...

I received a burden for missions about a year ago... (I actually wrote about it for my English class and my teacher loved it.)


It was quite the experience, to say the least. I had images/clips [filled with faces that were hurt & searching for help] run through my mind constantly.


It disturbed me.
It made me cry.
But most of all, It changed me.

My Pastor preached on Wednesday night and he mentioned that God was dealing with him about missions.


“We don’t give enough money to missions.”

“There needs to be more time spent in prayer for missions.”

What he said was so good & we understood. He told us of Bro. Thomas, missionary in India, who visited a week or 2 before. Bro. Thomas had preached for the church about 4 years ago (before I was there, I think). He told Pastor that he wanted a group of Pastors/ministers/saints to go to India.

So my Pastor told us he wanted anyone who can, to go to India with him..

And here I am today, telling you, that I am planning on going :)

I have heard stories about the bugs, the life (Wealthy/Poor/Middle Class), the food..etc. This is no fun & games.. It's business.



It’s going to be difficult. A few thousand dollars to raise.. But hey, if I really want to go, then I will REALLY try to raise the money.

My first Missions Trip :)
and I pray not the last.

Pray for me & the rest of the group that plans on going. Also, make sure you keep those who are on the Mission Field in your prayers! They all need it!

God bless :)

Where have I been?

Has it really been almost 2 years since my last post? So much has changed.

(Honestly, I am updating my blog because I like to reflect back on how far God has brought me. Forewarning, don't read if you don't want to take a look into my life the past year. This blog has many memories and I want to add on to it.)

2 years seems like a lifetime ago. I was hurting, broken-hearted, uprooted, and quite frankly, needing God more than ever. I questioned everything I was taught and needed answers, but thankfully, there was one thing I knew for sure...

God had plans and He would be all I needed.

Fast forward to October 2017 and I have lived in the state of Washington for a year, moved into my dreamy studio apartment in August, and I work in beautiful northern Idaho making & working more than I would have in Southern California. Who would have thought? Little Miss Meagan, moving 1.300 miles away from her family because God opened doors and said, "Come."

The Struggle is Real

I am not usually the person who spreads their woes on Facebook, Instagram, or blog. Tonight may be the exception but I will refrain from letting emotions get the best of me.

We are all facing trials. Whether you are 16 years old and tempted to cut your hair, 18 years old and thinking about leaving the church since you are technically an 'adult', 21 years old and being pressured to drink, or 24 years old and struggling with hurt and depression.

The struggle is REAL!

The truth is, we are all at different points in our walk with God and, believe it or not, the trials are ALL God-ordained. They have been put in our life specifically for us and to make us more like Christ. The struggles you are facing are a test of your faith and love for God, but they are also there so you can learn from your mistakes and help others when they go through the same trial.

Honey, if you are dealing with hurt, I could quote scripture after scripture giving you encouragement and to cast your cares on Go…

Don't be ashamed

Since my previous post, Walgreen's called me in October and offered me a Pharmacy Technician position! How amazing is that?!  I was so thankful to get hired by my intern site because I knew the patients, the daily routine, and they already felt like my work family.

When the time came to order my scrubs, there was no way I would wear their scrubs pants and I spoke up right away. I told my manager, and guess what? He sent out an email, and it was approved for me to wear a scrub skirt. Let's just say I was the first for them :) but I get so many compliments at the pharmacy! So many of my patients have come in and commented on how cute it was, how they haven't seen a scrub skirt, didn't even know they made them. And OH MY GOODNESS, the compliments on my hair! LOL!

Let this be a reminder for all the girls - all my friends - don't be afraid or ashamed of what (and Who) we stand for! You are a light! :)
