Hi I'm Esther

I have a deep love for the Savior and Heavenly Father. I love cooking and learning about other cultures. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter of Heavenly Father and my earthly father. I have grown to love both so much! Everyday I learn and grow and become even a little bit more of how Heavenly Father wants me to be. I have grown up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have grown more love for my Savior. It's wonderful to think that nobody has made me believe what I do, but Heavenly Father has guided me to believe in him and his son Jesus Christ. He has trusted me with different experiences throughout my life-hard ones and fun ones. Both of which I get to share with my family. Family means everything to me, and without them I mean nothing. Our favorite thing to do in my family is to spend time with each other: parties, camping, church, holidays...anything and everything. I am the youngest of 7 children (5 boys and 2 girls), I love people, and love to learn. I have gone through much schooling (or at least it feels like it), I have a love for traveling, I love cooking and trying new foods.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is the right thing for me. I love how there is so much to learn in life and how the gospel can be apart of our lives. The love that Heavenly Father has for everyone is so wonderful and great. The spirit testifies to me that this is true everyday-how can it not be true? I am apart of Jesus Christ's church because I want to be with my family forever. I grew up with it-even before I was born-my immediate family are all members, and it is wonderful. But I have my own testimony of this gospel, and am not in it just because my family are members, but I have chosen for myself and have used my agency. This is what makes me the most happy in my life and I wouldn't do anything else-except bring others into it as well.

How I live my faith

I love my faith! Everyday I pray and read my scriptures. I try and listen to the Holy Ghost and be in tune with God.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Esther
Joseph Smith was the man that God intended to restore his church to the earth. It was because of Joseph's faith and determination that he was called to be a prophet. He was a man that loved God, and did his will; in this life and before we came. He is the prophet that started modern revelation in this last dispensation. Show more Show less

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Esther
We needed a Restoration because----God loves us so much and doesn't want us to wander in sin when he already gave us the ultimate gift in the atonement of his son Jesus Christ. We now need to know what that means and how we can return to our Heavenly Father-through a living day prophet. Didn't the prophets of old testify of Jesus Christ? Today we have a prophet that does the same thing and helps us to not be confused today. The Bible is so great-and has so many truths, including that the church of Jesus Christ would leave the earth because the people would be so wicked and that it would be restored again through a prophet like Moses........Joseph Smith.
