Hi I'm Esbaide West

I grew up in Mexico. When I was 10 years old my life changed when I met the LDS missionaries. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When I married my husbad 12 years ago and moved to the United Sates I couldn’t understand a lot of English. Today I’m a college student and would like to work as an Interpreter in hospitals. The most important thing right now is my family and being at home with my two children. I know that no other achievemet in life will give me more happines and satisfaction. I love being a mom and a wife. Its also the most challenging thing I have ever done but is the most rewarding as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I got baptized when I was 10 years old because I felt the spirit and knew it was the right thing to do. When I was 12 years old I decided I wanted to have a testimony of the Book of Mormon. I read it everyday until I finished it. I felt the spirit many times and knew that it was true. Every blessing in my life today comes directly from being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love the teachings and the guidence that this church gives me to be a better daughter, wife, mother and member of my community. I know that Jesus Christ is the head of this church and I know that only through Him we will get back to our Heavenly Father. I know that He lives and He loves me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith trying my best to follow the example of Jesus Christ and following the guidance of our living prophet. I’m not perfect but I try everyday to be a good example for those around me. I love helping others and right know I serve as a nursery worker at church. I love teaching the little children in our church (18th months -3 years old) about Jesus Christ and His great love and sacrifice for us.

Are Mormons Christians?

Of course! Everything we are and everything we do is because of our Savior Jesus Christ. All the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are based on Jesus Christ teachings and example. We believe that only through him we will be saved. Show more Show less
