Hi I'm Riley Estes

I'm from Coeur d' Alene Idaho thats where I grew up. I'm a follower of Christ.

About Me

Hey Hey Hey my name is Elder Estes! I'm serving a mission in the West Virginia, Charleston Mission! I am from beautiful Coeur D' Alene, Idaho! I come from a family of 8 I have 3 older sisters and 1 younger brother and 1 younger sister! I love my family and I love the gospel!! Throughout my life my parents have had a lot of health issues, my mom had a stroke when i was 6 years old and my dad has had parkinsons's disease the last ten years! Thru these hard times, we have always fallen back on the atonement of Jesus Christ to lift us, Christ has really brought peace to my family and my life. He cares about all of us so indivually and whats to help us everyday.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm simply Mormon, because the church is true! In the scriptures it says Matthew 7:7: 7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: As we ask Heavenly Father in prayer we can know the truth of all things, but we also have to act and that has to do with knocking! As we choose to knock (act) and read the Book of Mormon and ask god if we can know if it's true we will get that answer! I am so grateful for the Gospel Of Jesus Christ it really gives you purpose in your life because you know where you came from, why your here and where your going. The church is true!!! I'm so greatful that god provides us with prophets and apostles to lead us back to return with are father in heaven! Im so grateful for this gospel and I know these men are called of god! https://www.lds.org/media-library/video/topics/testimony?lang=eng https://www.mormonchannel.org/watch/series/mormon-messages-for-youth/the-last-testimonies

How I live my faith

I always do my best to live my faith, by trying to be a true disciple of Jesus Christ. One thing that has really helped me with my faith is my mission, it has helped me that nothing really matters except the Gospel of Jesus Christ and it is truly here to help us with everyday life! I also try to live a outward focused life and do my best to help others and bring them into the Gospel of Jesus Christ, because I know it is truly the one thing that can bring happiness and comfort in this life! God always provides refuge for the sole and by restoring his church back on to the earth he has done it again. I have been on my mission for 19 months now and it has been an absolutly amazing experience i have come to know who my Savior is more fully and that God is are loving Heavenly Father and he is aware of us at all times!!! I truly love my mission it has been the best thing for me I love the Gospel Of Jesus Christ and I know the most important thing we can be is be diligent and consistent at all times, so we can align are will with his so we can become, what are father in heaven expects us to become!! Love you all and know I know this to be the truth 100 percent this is the Fulness of the Gospel: Learn it Live it and you love it!!! :) No doubt lets goooo!!!

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Riley Estes
The Book Of Mormon is another testament of are Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is an ancient record of the people in ancient America's from about 600 years before Christ to about 400 years after his death and resurrection. And it's God's dealings with his children in ancient America, he called Prophets in ancient America like he did in the Bible, and it's there records of God's dealings!! But the most amazing part of it is that Jesus Christ appears to the people in Americas after he is resurrected and sets up his church! The Book Of Mormon is true and you can know it by reading it and asking god! Show more Show less
