Hi I'm Sterling

I am a father, a financial consultant, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of three living in Houston Texas. I am passionate about soccer, chess, and movies. In my spare time I write novels, read books, and play with my beautiful children. I am currently working in the financial industry, but have done just about everything from digging ditches, repairing shoes, repointing sateilites in the Grand Canyon, and serving as a congressional intern on Capital Hill. I served a mission in Brazil and cherish my experiences and relationships I developed there.

Why I am a Mormon

 I believe that this is the church of Jesus Christ. He is my savior, redeemer, example, and best friend. I am thankful for His friendship and I love His church. I rely on Him for everything, especially his patience and long suffering as I try in my feeble way to be like Him. But even someone like me can be saved, and that gives me great joy and peace. The Book of Mormon is another witness of Him. I know that it is true. But I think the biggest reason is the ordinances that only this church performs. Baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands are two especially important to me. Paul talks about it, but only in this church did I find those who have the authority, like Peter, to do it. And they don't sell that power for money to the modern Simons. It is a priceless gift from my Heavenly Father. 

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the scriptures, serving others, and being a father. I try to learn more about Christ and develop His attributes. He is our example and I think we truly find ourselves as we submit to His will and try to be like him. It is such an amazing experience to truly find yourself by losing yourself in His ways.
