Hi I'm Sterling Pardoe McGregor

I am a Mormon and I was born in Hollywood, CA and grew up in Southern California. I am a third generation Californian.

About Me

I am a husband and married for 27 years and a father of 4 children. I enjoy hiking and ancient history. I like to go rifle shooting with my 12 year old son as well as swimming in our community pool. I have 3 son's and a daughter. I am in the commercial real estate business.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of Jesus Christ I received from the holy ghost after study and prayer of the book of mormon; otherwise, I would not be a member of this or any church. In a world with doubt and confusion, the Book of Mormon is a real thing I can turn to for comfort and faith. I have many trials but I do find peace through my faith.

How I live my faith

I help my son with his scout activities My older son already received his eagle and I helped him when he was working toward that important goal. I have worked as a Sunday School teacher and enjoy teaching the young children. They are sweet and I enjoy teaching the young children very much because they are so honest.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Sterling Pardoe McGregor
I am here on earth to receive a body and to have the freedom to choose right from wrong. As I exercise my free agency I experience good and bad, but everything in life brings you experience to become more Christ like in thought and deed. Being apart of a family is the Lord's plan for us to progress. We need to learn how to serve one another and what better way than to be apart of a loving family. Family relationships comprise the main reason we are here on earth. It is important that I seek daily to foster kind and loving feelings within my family. I know that at the end of my life and when I die, the main success or failure of my life will be how I lived with my family members. Did I help my wife and children to draw closer to Christ or did I drive them away. I know the love that I have for my family and my family for me is what life is all about. Show more Show less
