Hi I'm Sterling

I grew up in Arizona but now I'm a missionary serving in Tallahassee Florida, and i am a Mormon!

About Me

I used to live in Arizona in an area where it got very hot during the summers. so naturally swimming was one of those things almost everyone did, my parents started me on swim team when i was six years old, and i continued swim team till high school where i did marching band. After i moved to Idaho i did swim team again my senior year and wow did i miss it! It was great! my entire life me and my siblings have always been fans of swimming. And although moving was hard, it ended up working out great even though i was afraid i wouldn't make any friends. turns out i made lots of friends and moving was probably the best thing that could have happened to me.

Why I am a Mormon

i was born and raised in the church, so as a child i relied on my parents testimony, i was never very interested in scouts or going to church at all but i did because i was expected to in my family. As i got older i began to find out for myself through personal experiences that the church was true: through my trials and the difficulties in my life, and because of how i was taught to pray when faced with difficulty. After praying for help and guidance I received help from sources i would not have thought of. although it was anything like divine intervention, i knew it was from God, and that because he loves me, he helped me when i truly needed him.

How I live my faith

I didn't hardly ever visit temples as a kid but once i came to realize its importance and i got a testimony of my own i visited the temple almost every week, and it was a great blessing in my life. I helped my father as a home teacher as well and it was a good experience helping other families when they were in need. I am now about to serve my mission in Tallahassee Florida, and i am excited to have the opportunity to help and serve others!
