Meagan Jackson

Meagan was born and raised a member of the Church in California. After a semester abroad and a full-time mission, she graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in psychology. She now works as a middle school teacher and loves every minute of it. When she’s not working, she likes to spend time writing music and traveling the world. In the last several years as Meagan has come to understand her feelings of same-sex attraction, she has learned that while it may be a part of her identity, the most important part of her identity is her knowledge that she is a daughter of God and a member of His Church. She wants to be able to reach out to others and strengthen them to find the peace the Savior can bring.

Your advice to wait and sort through priorities and desires first is the greatest take away I received from your message. Thank you for your steadfast example.

I just want to thank you for your courage and example. You steadfastness in Christ and choice to follow him. I needed your example. Thank you. the Gospel is so true! And you are an example of how, no matter what we are struggling with, we can always choose to follow Him.

Meagan, Thank you for sharing such hope with everyone. I remember such happy times we all had in BYU Women's Chorus, and I just admire you even more now than I did then. Your story is such a good example of how the atonement brings us peace in this life even if our struggles aren't taken away from us. Much love sent your way!

Meagan, if you're reading this, I want you to know that the Lord loves you no matter who you are attracted to and who you love. I am not a Latter Day Saint (I'm Catholic) so I can't know everything that you have learned about homosexuality, but as a Christian gay woman I know that God loves me and my girlfriend just as much as people who are heterosexual. If you love someone God doesn't care what gender they are. For a long time I was ashamed of my sexuality and it was God who helped me through and made me understand that there was nothing wrong with me and that acting on homosexuality is not a sin. You don't have to hide it or pretend to be someone you are not by marrying a guy. You are not alone and you deserve to be happy. I wish for the best for you! Sincerely, A Lesbian Christian
