Hi I'm Sterling Jaden Johnson

I've grown up in Tooele, UT. I like to keep myself fit. My family is really important to me, and am a Mormon and I love it!

About Me

I just recently graduated from high school. I was never involved in any sort of sport or extracurricular activities you could say I was just a normal kid going through school just getting good grades. It was during my last 2 years of high school where I really found my testimony of Jesus Christ. I had recently moved from my school and was attending a new one with new people. I eventually met new people they were good kids with good standards and morals many were members of the church. This influence was a huge impact on my life and a real kick starter for me to find my own testimony of our savior Jesus Christ. I have now a strong testimony of our loving Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and of the power of the atonement. And am taking on the next big step and that is to help bring people to Christ. So they can have the opportunity to preform those ordinances in the temple, and develop a closer relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

I have gain a testimony of the church I know because the holy ghost has told me through assuring feeling of joy, peace, and comfort that it is. The priesthood has been restored to the earth we hold the keys of the priesthood which is the power of god here on earth. I know we are a church that is guided by a living prophet to give members of the church spiritual guidance and to lead the church. The Book Of Mormon is a true book that was translated by the prophet Joseph Smith. I have a strong faith and testimony in the ordinance in the temple I know that through the temple I can be sealed to my companion forever and all eternity I know I can become like my Heavenly Father. Were are his sons and daughter and that makes us his children. I know god created all things spiritually before he made them physically. And I know through pray and scripture study am able to communicate and develop and relationship with my Father in Heaven. I know my savior Jesus Christ came to this earth and suffered on the cross and in Gethsemane for my sin and for everyone who is and was alive and will be. I know it's through his grace if I live righteously I can return to my father again. I know our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love.(One of my favorite chapters is 3 Nephi:17 you can see the love Jesus has for us) Am Mormon, because it makes me happy and brings joy into my life to know I can be with my loved ones again to know that am greater than what the world want me to be. To know am love. I have the guidance of the priesthood. I have a relationship with God. I am Mormon Because I know it to be true!

How I live my faith

I try my best to live my faith. One of the many ways I try to live by my faith is by remembering to be an example and follower of Christ. I bless and pass the sacrament on Sunday's this is a wonderful opportunity for me to help members renew their convents with their Heavenly Father. It a great blessing in my life to know am worthy of this sacred ordinance. Also trying to constantly have a eternal perspective of the plan of salvation is a way I try to remember who I am and who I can become. In my quorum am able to help give insight on gospel doctrine and principles. We also help do many service activities such as yard work or moving families. I have been able to grow stronger relationships with many people inside and outside the ward. Just by doing my best and living by the standards and the commandment of the lord I have been blessed and given a sure assurance that the Church is true and God lives and loves all of us.
