Hi I'm Kimmi Estrada

Im from Texas! I enjoy sports, music, singing, and being with my awesome family! I love to make others laugh. And I'm Mormon!!

About Me

I grew up in Texas (19 years) but I now live in Utah. I love playing sports and making art. I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in Argentina (Nov 2015-May 2017) Then I will be attending school and study medicine. My favorite color is green. And my favorite animal is a giraffe.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I was born and raised in the church, and in all honesty I believe I have had a personal conversion. Being raised around a small amount of members of the church I have seen what it is like to live without the knowledge of the true and full gospel. Some are confused or just going through the motions. Others struggle making good choices whether that's by lack of guidance or lack of care I'm not sure. What I do know is that I don't want to live like that. With the gospel in my life I have the knowledge of my Savior's love for me and my purpose on this earth. I know what I can become and the steps that I need to take to become that. I'm a Mormon because I would not want to go through this life any other way. And I know whats in store for me after this life!

How I live my faith

There were barely any members my age when I was growing up in Texas. No one completely understood my faith or standards. Although I shared willingly they easily became uninterested. I am diligent in keeping the standards set by the church to show my strength to others even when I may stand alone. I feel as though people respect me for it. I also try my best to always be friendly and have the Spirit with me so others will see the happiness the gospel can bring, and hopefully encourage them to grow closer to Christ through my example.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Kimmi Estrada
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believes that we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father . Our purpose on this earth is to not only grow personally and become a disciple of Christ, but to helps our brothers and sisters do the same. The Church donates not just money but materials to help and support other countries. We strive to love others the way Christ loves everyone. Mormon or not we do what we can for everyone.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Kimmi Estrada
As children of God we have been blessed with the opportunity to receive mortal bodies as it says in 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s." So as we learn from that our bodies are temples, precious gifts that our Father has given us. Not only are our bodies gifts, but expensive gifts. We must take care of them to our best ability and respect them to the highest degree. This is why in 1833 the prophet Joseph Smith received revelation on how we can do just that. The Word of Wisdom is a law for the well being of our bodies. The revelation that Joseph Smith received from God was that we should not drink or partake of: alcohol, coffee. tea, tobacco, or illegal drugs. As well that we should eat foods that benefit our health such as fruits and vegetables, and have a habit of daily exercise and a healthy sleep schedule. When we do these things we are promised physical as well as spiritual blessings. Physical in the way that we are free from addictions and harmful substances. Spiritually by following a law given to us from God. We can be happier when we are healthy both spiritually and physically that is why we follow the Word of Wisdom. Show more Show less
