Hi I'm Sterling Larsen

I'm an Eagle Scout and my five sons are Eagle Scouts. Scouting is sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I am an engineer living in LaGrange, Ky. I have been married to my dear wife Carol for 31 years. We have six children (5 sons, 1 daughter). We enjoy music and scouting. I also enjoy sports and backpacking.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my entire life. I had many great experiences in my youth that helped me develop my personal testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have always been encouraged to study and find the answers to my questions in life. Through prayerfully studying the Book of Mormon I was able to gain a personal witness of its truths. The doctrines of the purpose of life and the meaning of family bonds is extremely significant in my life. The mission of Jesus Christ to make all things possible for our eternal progression. I know that Christ lives and that His atonement has made it possible for me to repent and press forward to be more like Him eternally, receiving blessings of joy and happiness.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to work with and teach the youth at church and in scouting. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are supporters of the scouting principles. I enjoy giving service to church members and friends in the community.
