Hi I'm Esteban

I'm a husband, a dad, a soccer fanatic, and a software engineer.

About Me

I'm the father of 3 beautiful children; I love them and my wife immensely. I work as a software engineer and really enjoy it. When time permits, I enjoy watching and playing soccer.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 12, my 10 year old brother died on a school trip. Upon hearing the news, I was confused and somewhat angered. I could not understand why God would let this happen. A few weeks after my brother's death, while praying, my Father in Heaven comforted me. I knew right then and there that my brother would be OK, and that I would meet him again some day. Through that, and many other experiences, I've come to know that Heavenly Father is truly the Father of my spirit. I've received confirmation time and time again that Jesus is indeed my Savior, and that he cares deeply and personally for me. I feel gratitude for their love and patience towards me.

How I live my faith

While attending college I learned that everything I do, I can do in order to serve my God and my brothers and sisters here on earth. I've also come to learn that the most important thing I can do is to be a good example for my children and to love my wife. I think about my responsibilities as a father daily, and it gives me much joy to see my children growing up in righteousness. I live my faith by loving my wife, and teaching correct principles to my children.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

In the temple, members make sacred covenants that will allow them to return to God's presence as eternal families. Because of the sacred nature of these covenant, only members who are worthy and prepared to make these covenants are allowed to enter. Show more Show less
