Hi I'm Hermana Bianca Espinoza

I am a Mormon. I am currently serving in the best mission in the World! The Florida Fort Lauderdale Mission.

About Me

I grew up with music in the home. I play the piano and I sing. I have been working with victims/ survivors of domestic violence, child abuse, and all forms of sexual assault for many years. I am a community advocate. I have my associates degree in general studies and wish to continue my schooling towards Social Work and/ or Anthropology. I am the middle of 7 children and the only girl in my family that is not adopted (I have 3 sisters. And, 3 brothers.) I am bilingual- English and Spanish. My mother, who is from Chile, raised us as Hispanic families do.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Well, I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know it is truth. I am not a Mormon because it agrees with my lifestyle or because I grew up in the church. If anything, I am and love being a member of this Church because it makes me want to be a better person everyday. It helps me know who I really am, which is a daughter of God. I happen to like feeling at peace that there is more out there than just THIS life. I am content knowing I am a child of God and life doesn't just end once one is dead. How could one feel good about themselves or even humanity if one was to believe we are all condemned, no matter how hard we try? One can't. I am a Mormon because I believe in progress past this life as well as a loving Heavenly Father who wants us ALL to return to his presence.

How I live my faith

I love the way members of the church spend so much time and effort in including everyone around them in their daily lives. When I lived in Wisconsin, the members of my ward did almost everything together. We would help paint a co-workers home and babysit, we would go to the movies together, we would help clean the church and maintain the cleanliness through out the week, and we would visit those were admitted to the hospital for serious health issues. We support each other in everything.
