Hi I'm Esther

I am a musician, a friend, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music with a passion. I am studying piano performance in college, and I enjoy the opportunities to serve and change lives through music. I love the marimba and organ too. I love to sing, even though it is not my forte. I love the temple or House of the Lord. I am a movie and book lover. I love to hike, travel, and explore God's creations.

Why I am a Mormon

I love Jesus Christ and I love our Heavenly Father. I have learned so much throughout my life about different religions and I am grateful that I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because through personal experiences I know that God loves us and answers our prayers. I know that even though sometimes life seems to be bombarded with trials and hardships, Christ, through His Atonement, is able to comprehend all and help us on every step of the way. This life is a test, we have to work hard and be diligent, and it is through our hard works we are able to gain something worthwhile and our knowledge. I am grateful for the small miracles and tender mercies in my life. I know that God exists and I love reading the scriptures and following His servants, the prophets, and I know that I can share this good message to others like you. To let you know that you deserve the love you don't think you need.

How I live my faith

I love the church and serving in the church. I have been a ward organist, music coordinator and pianist in choirs in several occasions. I enjoy feeling the Spirit through hymns and sacred music. I love planning monthly activities for the young women in my ward and lifting their Spirit through service.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Esther
We are a missionary church and we will always be a missionary church. But not all Mormons are required or have the opportunities to serve a mission due to different health issues or commitments. Missionaries serve from 18 months to 2 years. Serving a mission is a Priesthood duty, every able young man should plan to serve a mission, but I personally think that young women contribute a lot to the mission field as well. I love the missionaries and it is incredible to see how they change people's lives. Missionaries should strive their best to obtain their own testimony as well, and not serve a mission because it is a trend. We serve because we love the Lord and His children. Show more Show less
