Hi I'm Estella Udall

I love to run. I'm addicted to peanut butter. I love cereal. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a peanut butter addict of 19 years who is serving in the Seoul Korea mission. I love all things s'more, cereal, naps, camping, and sports. I love the gospel and everything about it. Lara Murdock was my first companion and was one of my best friends in the pre-mortal life. It took a mission to bring us together. #seoulsisters

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. Something I am so grateful for now. I used to be jealous of those who weren't born into the church, thinking they knew what it was like to live without it. I felt that they appreciated and had a better understanding of how it felt to be a member-which was silly of me. Every member is a convert. Each has a conversion. My conversion was "line upon line, precept upon precept." It was a little at a time. I gained a testimony of tithing as I began working and had to pay my own tithing. I gained a testimony of prayer as simple prayers were answered. Heavenly Father cares about every prayer. He hears and listens to every prayer and in his own time and in his own way he answers every prayer in a way that will help us to reach our greatest potential. I gained a testimony of Christ's atonement each time I partake of the sacrament and each time I need healing or forgiveness- which is every day. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a gospel of forgiveness. He is filled with endless mercy. Each time I read the Book of Mormon my testimony of it's truthfulness and of Joseph Smith deepens. I know Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God. He was a prophet. He did see God and Jesus Christ. He wouldn't have suffered so great if he hadn't. Each time I listen to conference my testimony of Thomas S Monson is furthered. I know he is a living prophet on the earth today. All of these little things, and more, put together are all a testimony to me that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only true church. I love it. I love the gospel. It is wonderful and the purest source of happiness.

How I live my faith

I live in a small community where being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ is not something rare. The church is well known. Yet I still have the opportunity to share my testimony and invite others to attend church with me or listen to missionary lessons. I love relief society. Sacrament meeting is so important to me. We all need it as we strive to be better every week.
