Hi I'm Stirland Zollinger

I grew up on a dairy farm in Idaho. I love sports and being adventurous. Im a Mormon

About Me

I was raised by loving parents on a small dairy farm in southern Idaho and so i learned how to work at a young age. My parents were very strong in the church and so their example had a huge impact on me. I love the outdoors and being adventurous. I love playing all sports and just being active in general. I wrestled most of my life and found that to be one of my biggest passions. I also loved ATV's and other motorized vehicles. I went to a small high school and made a lot of friends. I am now attending Utah State University in Logan Utah and i love the school so much. I am now preparing to serve my mission in the Indonesia, Jakarta mission on July 2nd.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i know with every fiber of my being that this gospel is true. I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and that he came to the earth and made it possible for all us to return to live with him and god forever. I know that Joseph Smith is true prophet and did restore the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints into its perfect form. I know that we have prophets today that lead and guide us and give us answers to all the questions that we may have through Christs help. I know this stuff to be true because of the experiences that i have had and the feelings i have felt. I have lived a great life and been blessed so much because of what i have learned and followed. I have learned for myself that we have a loving heavenly father who wants us to live with him again someday and will help us in everything that we do.

How I live my faith

My whole life is based around my religion. Everything that i do is someway or another based around the beliefs that i know. It has kept me away from harm, going in a good path for life, and made me the person that i am today. I have had many callings in the priesthood that have strengthened my testimony and have given wonderful spiritual moments the reminds me every day how true the gospel is. One of my greatest experiences was being on the seminary council for my school. I taught me how to be a good leader and example. I try to live my life now by being a good example to others. This keeps my doing the things that i should be by knowing that what others see me as may change the way someone thinks about Mormons. I try to live my life to the fullest and be as successful as i can in all that i can. I love the gospel and try to live my life by the ways of what it teaches and guides.
