Alexander is a wife, mother and Christ follower. She’s known for her faith and commitment to abstinence as she saved herself for marriage. She publicly talks about her choice to remain a virgin in a secular world, especially someone who works in the mainstream media and entertainment industry. Megan came from a Christian family where she learned to value herself and that she was worth the wait. She married her best friend, Brian, in 2008 and they now have a 3-year-old son. She splits her time between work in New York and her family life Nashville each week. She credits her husband as the reason she’s able to live out her dream as she balances career, motherhood and marriage. She speakers to various groups, women, teens, young adults and faith-based organizations about her belief in God and speaks about her own personal journey. While she recognizes that the entertainment industry can be a difficult place to stay strong in your faith, and marriage, she believes God has a bigger plan for her and her family.
Megan knew she wanted a marriage based on trust, love and commitment before she ever met her husband Brian. She suggests that saving oneself for marriage is not just about sex, it’s about the bigger decision in your approach to marriage. She realizes her choice may not be for everyone, but she believes it has been a huge secret to her success in all areas of her life. Megan discusses the importance of placing a high value on your self-worth as a person that has allowed her to have success in many areas of her life.
