Hi I'm Sterling

I'm from the heartland, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports, even though I don't excel at them. I am looking forward to studying engineering physics when I return to my home in the United States.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to Mormon parents, but I still had to learn for myself. I had read the Book of Mormon several times without actually praying. I had felt the spirit but I just didn't have the full on witness that the church was true. It wasn't until I read 3 Nephi chapter 11 verses 7-17 when the resurrected Jesus Christ appeared unto the inhabitants of America. I prayed for confirmation and an overwhelming sense of peace and joy came to me. I know that this is the only completely true church on the Earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and was translated correctly by Joseph Smith through the power of God. I know that Thomas S. Monson is in fact a prophet and that he leads and guides this church according to the will of the Lord. I know that Satan has very real power and that he loves to use it, but I am also blessed to know that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ did come to this Earth and that He suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane and died on the cross, only to break the bonds of death and was resurrected. I know that because of Jesus Christ''s sacrifice I can be made clean and whole again and one day return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father. This testimony is worth more to me than anything imaginable in this world.

How I live my faith

I talk to anyone who will listen about our Heavenly Father and His love for all His children. I regularly attend a scripture study course in the mornings Monday through Friday. I go to church every Sunday and participate in the lessons, often times being asked to help teach for a few minutes. I look forward to spending two years of my life in service of my fellow children of our Heavenly Father.
