Hi I'm Esthela

I was born in Mexico and came to the United States when I was 16 yrs old.I'm a housewife and a full time mom.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a housewife and a full time mom of three beautiful children. I'm married to a wonderful man who has been a member of the church since 1995. We've been married for 15 years,he's the love of my life and my eternal companion. I also have two german shepherd dogs that require so much attention.I enjoy reading, watching movies with my family,taking my two dogs to the park and I love doing zumba,it's a great workout! I also like doing crafts,sewing and love to listen to good music.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a mormon and believe this is the true church of Jesus Christ,He established His church by the power of God and I strongly believe everything is done by revelation. My parents were baptized when I was 2 years old and when I turned 8 my father baptized me and my twin brother in a river in Mexico. I still remember that day that was on a saturday and the next day I was sharing my testimony during sacrament meeting. I am very greatful for the missionaries that knocked on my parent's door and shared the gospel with them,I know that what they shared with them is true,I also know that all the missionaries have the authority of God to preach the gospel here on this earth. I have a strong testimony of the Church because Our Heavenly Father answers my prayers and I know that when I keep His commandments He blesses me and my family. I know my Father loves me and He is waiting for me to go back to Him some day,I know that if I keep His commandments I will see Him again. I'm very greatful to my Heavenly Father for sending His son to die for my sins,because of His sacrifice I can repent and return to Him.I've read the Book of Mormon more than once and I have a strong testimony of it. I know that it was written by true prophets of God. I'm greatful for the temples and the work that is done in these special Temples that we are blessed with. I know that Families can be sealed together forever in these temples.

How I live my faith

I now serve in the church and love having the opportunity to help others in the branch. Jesus Christ is a perfect example for each of us to follow. When He was on this earth He ministered to the poor and the needy and thats what we need to do. In our branch we are sewing blankets to donate to a charity place of our choice,we are also collecting winter clothes for those in need. They are so many types of service that we can do throughout the year. I also have my visiting teachers that once a month come to my home and share a very important message with me. By doing that they're helping me to be a better wife and a better mother to my kids. I thank them for taking the time to come and spend this special time with me. Together we all can come together to grow spiritually and learn from one another.
