Hi I'm Sierra Sutton

I am from West Texas, I am currently serving as a missionary, I love to direct and write film, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I'm 19, and I leave for a mission this fall! I am the oldest of 4 girls and we love drama! I love to read books and tell stories, and I just got into film and directing! At school, I'm known as the 'theatrical' one. It's a rare occasion that I'm not bursting into song, quoting movies or plays (mostly Disney), telling an animated story, or doing a little dance. When I'm not busy, I love to hang out with my friends and do things such as Frisbee, laser tag, watching movies, or hot-tubbing. I love to talk and speak about anything! If I'm at home, I love to binge on Netflix, talk with my friends and family, or read! Right now most of my time is spent preparing to serve the Lord by studying my scriptures, going out with the sister missionaries, and doing the best I can in all that I do!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I truly have a testimony of this gospel. I was born into this church, and I grew up an active member. For a while, I began to doubt the gospel and the church and even God. I lost my way. After lots of praying and repenting, I was able to come to know that this church is really true! God is real, and He loves me, no matter what happens, and He wants me to return to him to live with him in His kingdom for eternity. I know that Jesus Christ died for our sins and made it possible for our sins to be forgiven. I know that Joseph Smith was true prophet of God, and that he did indeed see God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon, and I know that it is the word of God. I have read the Book of Mormon and have asked God in sincere prayer if this book is truly from Him; the truthfulness of this book was testified to me by His Holy Spirit. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet from God, and that he leads this church today in righteousness. I feel the witness of the Spirit as I write this, once again testifying to me of the truth of this gospel. I am a Mormon because I have truly been changed by His doctrine, and I have felt of His love and come to know Him better. I know that through Him and His gospel, I can be happy and joyful, far more than I would without Him. I love this gospel, and I love my Savior, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

At church I am the choir director, and I absolutely love to praise His name in the beauty of song! I love to bring everyone together to share our testimonies through music. I try to serve the Lord with my talents whenever I can, be it babysitting, yard work, teaching music or simply being kind to others! I try to make others laugh and smile with my eccentricities and songs, as I know that our Father in Heaven wants us to be happy in this life. I stand up for my standards, even when it may be less popular with my friends or society. I am a ward missionary and soon to be a full-time missionary, and I try to share the joy of the gospel with my friends and even just those I meet daily.
