Hi I'm Sterling

I was born in Michigan, moved to California, and played football. I am now serving a mission in Chile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm Sterling. I played football for four years, I am very outdoorsy and love to ski, mountain bike, and just be outside. I am currently serving a mission for two years in Chile, in South America.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 16 I had an experience that changed my life. I was at a church camp called EFY or "Especially For Youth." It was my second year going and I had doubts about whether the Church was true. I asked my counselor a question about the Church. He gave me two scriptures. One was in the Book of Mormon, and the other was in Doctrine and Covenants. I read these scriptures a lot during the week of EFY. I studied and prayed and sincerely asked Heavenly Father for an answer. On the last day of the camp, I was studying the scriptures and listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir when the answer to my question was sung in a song. I felt the spirit so strongly, telling me that the church is true. That little experience strengthened my testimony. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

In Church I am a missionary. I serve in Chile where I preach the gospel 7 days a week.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Sterling
We do not worship Joseph Smith. Like most Christians we worship God our Heavenly Father, and His son Jesus Christ. We believe that Joseph Smith reorganized Jesus Christ Church in this current time period. We believe that through Joseph Smith, Christ shared insight and knowledge the members of the church needed to know, just as prophets of old did in the Bible. Show more Show less
