Hi I'm Sterling

I'm a Missionary, I'm a U.S. Marine, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

 I'm 22 and serving as a volunteer full-time missionary for my church in British Columbia, Canada. Before this I decided to enlist and serve in the United States Marine Corps. One of the best decisions I have ever made. I'll go back to that after my term of missionary service has ended. I have alot of hobbies that involve being very active. Extreme sports have got to be my favorite, anything from Snowboarding and rockclimbing to paintball and martial arts.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was born into my faith and grew up in it, but that cannot be why someone should stay in a faith. I am a Mormon because I saw the type of life and freedom it offered me, and wanted it. I came to know the truth of the teachings of the church after much trial and error on my own part. Heavenly Father showed me, that his way, is the best way. So now I can say with confindence that I am a Mormon because I studied, prayed and have had time and time again seen it is the real and true Church of Christ.

How I live my faith

 I try to follow the commandments as closely as I can. It has not always been this way, so I also repent often. I try to share the countless blessings in life I have been given and help people see, mostly my close friends, how they can have those blessings as well. You cannot have faith if you do not first live your faith. Anything I share, I now try to live and be.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is inspired writings of ancient prophets, or otherwise called scripture. The Holy Bible has the Old Testament the New Testament and the Book of mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon was written by prophets on the American continent during much of the same time that the Holy Bible was being written. This book contains the Fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and is powerful evidence that Joseph Smith is a prophet and that the true and living Gospel of Christ has once again been restored to the Earth.  Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

 Anyone who believes that Mormons only help Mormons has never looked at what we do. The doctrine of the Church, of Christ, teach that we must always serve our fellow men, love our brothers, and pray for our enemies. Show more Show less
