Hi I'm Esther Munday

I grew up all over England. I'm a super happy person. I love everything to do with music! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have moved house a lot, all over England, and I'm currently living by the Temple which is wonderful! I am the oldest of 5 children. We all love to sing and dance, so it is very rarely quiet in our house. I am a grade 8 piano player. Music just makes me happy, in every form! I love reading, watching movies, exploring outdoors, climbing and spending time with family and friends. I'm currently working in the MTC Kitchen and as a piano teacher. I've finished my A levels and now I'm getting ready to be a missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in this church, with both my parents being members. But ever since I was little I have believed that what I've been taught is true. To me it all makes sense and everything fits. The more I learn, the more this is confirmed to me. This church answers the questions of where we came from, why we are here, and where we are going. I have a great faith that started small but continues even now to grow. I have come to know for myself that The Book of Mormon is true. I know that the Prophet Joseph Smith did in fact translate it by the power of God and he restored this true church on the earth. I know that we have a living prophet on the earth today who receives revelation from God that can bless the lives of everyone. But perhaps the most important thing of all, I know that Jesus Christ lives. Every single time I think of him, I'm truly amazed and overwhelmed by what he did for all the human beings that had or will ever live. He loves me and he gave his life for me, and I am so greatly in debt to him, which is why I will continue striving every day of my life to be better, for him. This church brings a message a true joy, and I know that it has made me so happy, and will continue to as I live by its precepts. The Lord is my light, and the light of the world. He shines even in the darkest of times. Jesus Christ is the one person who knows exactly how I feel and exactly how you feel, what each of us is going through he has experienced, so I know I can always go to him and he will carry me through it all. I really do love The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I am constantly looking for ways that I can serve others using the talents that God has blessed me with. So I sing in the choirs and play piano in the church meetings, lessons, baptisms etc. I love to spend time with other young people who are also members, both older and younger than me, whether that's in a study class or a fun activity. As we all strive to be better and to improve ourselves, we help to strengthen each other along the way. Everyday I'm trying to live better than I did the day before, so I pray and study the scriptures, along with other church material to point me in the direction of what I need to change in my life. I try to spend as much time at church and by the temple as I can, attending activities and classes in the week as well as meetings on Sundays. It is just a really good place to be, with other good people who are living good lives.
