Hi I'm Sterling

I shoot competivtely when i was younger. I am a HUGE Boise State BRONCO FAN!! and I'm a mormon!

About Me

I am From Littleton CO origanally but moved to Boise When i was 10. I love snowboarding with my brother and friends. I love shooting rifles pistols and shotguns.... Cant say i'm too good with a bow and arrow though. I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the California Santa Rosa Mission! I love my mission and am so glad I a decided to serve one! When i was younger I worked at a scout camp in McCall ID and was able to meet a bunch of new people that became some of my best friends today. While I worked there I taught many different classes but my favorite to teach was rifle shooting. There is nothing like hanging out with a bunch of out of control kids that are all trigger happy.... It made for exciting days sometimes. When I worked up there I was luckily enough that to get the nickname of Panda. I later in life became to love that name.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon? Hmmmmmm. Why not!?! This Gospel has blessed my life in so many ways and everyday I find more ways it blesses me. I love it! It has given me a better perspective in life that helps me know that I wouldn't have so many blessings unless I had it in my life. I consider myself a convert to the church even though I was privilaged to be born in to it. Some say we are sheltered if we have grown up in the church but I ask "How can we be sheltered if the evils of the world are all around us?" We as Latter Day Saints just choose not to join in things that are not pleasing to the Lord. I am a Mormon because it is what God wants me to do. I am in active in this church because I have seen how it blesses families. And i will continue to be actvie because i know how the Atonement of Jesus Christ has helped me in life and has help me over come trials in my life

How I live my faith

One way I have lived my faith is by serving a two year mission. I try to live my life in a way that is how God would want me to live. Try to love everyone I come in contact with. I particiapte in my church actively and try to learn as much as I can so that I may share the Gospel with those around me. Not only because I am on a mission but because we must lead by example. When we lead by example we will see the change in those around us slowly but surely. I try my Hardest to live my testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ and by following the Holy Ghost to the best of my ability.
