Megan fills many roles – leading at Northwest Bible Church, The Classical School of Dallas, & Bright Lights Theater. I’m thankful she leads by example as she guides young people all over Dallas. Enjoy!💕
“Like many young ladies I have always had a love-hate relationship with the body I was given. Growing up heavily involved in dance and theatre, there was extra pressure in looking a certain way to achieve placement on a team or in a role.
I vividly remember the first time my image was mentioned publically; I was in the fifth grade and my dance instructor noted to the class that I was finally losing the baby weight and getting a dancer’s body.
Living with these picture perfect expectations from instructors and directors led me down a path of fad diets, copious amounts of time working out, and in measuring my value by my number on the scale or by what pants I could fit into.
I have since come to understand that my body was given to me so that I can use it to Glorify God, not myself or man. By that, I mean that my body, its health and maintenance, is what allows me to do the things God has called me to do.
Taking care of myself physically should not be for someone else or even for myself, but an act of worship to the one who gave me this body and life to live within it.
If we live for our own self-promotion or selfish ambitions we will always feel some kind of emptiness, and this is what I experienced when I made my health and weight about myself and others.
When I chose to look at my health and weight as a way to glorify God, I finally found the motivation and peace to learn what it is like to live a balanced and healthy life. I am definitely still learning and am not an expert by any means, but I hope this can be an encouragement to you!”
