Hi I'm Karen Esquerra

I bike, run, rock climb, and I do it all in a skirt!!! I'm a sister missionary. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm just your average girl.I am the oldest of six rug rats, they are so great. I love my family! There is never a dull moment in our house. It's all organized chaos...well I like to believe that it is all organized. I love sports!! I laugh...a lot. Laughter just makes everything better. Basically I am just a happy person aha. I am studying to become a nurse. Science is so great! My dream job is to one day work for Mythbusters!!!! For right now, all that is on hold, for the next 18 months I will be serving my loving Heavenly Father in The Great Kentucky Louisville Mission!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I always thought I was a Mormon because I grew up in the church. But now I know that I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. That Joseph Smith was and is a prophet of God. That he trasnslated the Book of Mormon. That the Book of Mormon is another testiment of our Savior Jesus Christ. Every time I read the Book of Mormon, I learn more about my Savior, and I feel the love that he and My Father in Heaven have for me. Feeling the love that God and the Savior Jesus Christ have for me has changed me. The fullness of the gospel has helped me to know that God is real and that he loves me and that I am his daughter. I have come to know my Savior through this gospel. I know that the Atonement of Jesus Christ is real and that as we apply it in our life, we are able to feel the greatest love and joy we can ever obtain. That love continues into the eternities!! How great is that!!! This gospel brings happiness. I have sought for happiness and I have found it!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a good example. I live my standards. There is so much joy that comes as we keep the commandments that our Heavenly Father has given us. I also live my faith by helping others. I love people and I love to serve.
