Hi I'm Esther Yuen

I grew up in sunny Irvine, California. I love to eat, sleep, go on adventures, and do crafty projects. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When I was younger my siblings and I experienced the divorce of my parents. Though it was a challenge that I did not fully understand at the time it did have a positive impact on my life. Through the transition of the divorce my two siblings and I grew closer as we came to each other for comfort and laughter. I have a deep appreciation for the gospel and for the knowledge I had (and still have) that my Heavenly Father and Savior love me. Now as a college student, I have new trials to face but I am grateful for the support of my family. I love each member of my family.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ is a big part of my life. I have seen countless tender mercies in my life and the blessings that have come from keeping the commandments. I know that through prayer I can communicate with my Father in heaven, and that he is listening to my words. I also know that Christ suffered for each of us, so that we may return to live with Him. I am beyond grateful for the power of the Atonement not only for repentance but for comfort. Through the Atonement I know that my sins are washed away. No matter how great or small the sin Heavenly Father wants each of His children to return home. I am grateful for the impact of the gospel in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my example each day. As I go through my day I constantly seek to live as Christ lived and have the Christ-like attributes. Whether it be being patient or charitable, I do strive to develop these traits and love those around me.
