Hi I'm Ethan

I never want to grow up, I love being creative and seeing the creations of others, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Southern California with two amazing parents. . I was going to school to become a teacher. I want to teach English and French. I am currently taking a break from my education and serving a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Salt Lake area of Utah. I plan on continuing my education after my mission. I want to be a teacher because I feel that a good teacher can turn a life around and help a student see the potential that they have. We are all capable of accomplishing so much, but I don't think that must of us see that potential we have. We need someone else to point it out to us and I am hoping us a teacher that I will be able to do that for somebody else because I had some amazing teachers that helped me. I love to go see plays and I love to be a part of plays on or off the stage. I listen to music as much as I possibly can. I love being with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know it is true. I have read the Book of Mormon from cover to cover. I have prayed about it and have received an answer. I know that God the Father and Jesus Christ appeared to the young Joseph Smith to answer his prayer. I have felt the peace that Christ talked about to his apostles in John 14:26-27. I have felt the peace that is not from this world. I have felt my Savior carry me through hard times in my life, because I am living in accordance with his gospel. I know that this church is the true church. I know this is the only church that God and Jesus Christ fully endorse. I have tested it and I have found it out for myself. That is why I am a mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example. I do my best to make sure that everyone around me knows my standards. When I was in theatre in high school that was crucial. I was faced with a lot of options that gave me the chance to showed everyone exactly what I believed. So I would do my best to make the right decisions and never compromise my standards. As I did that it gave me the opportunity to answer questions and share more about what I believe. That is how I live my faith.

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Yes, Jesus Christ di dappear in North America. In John 10:16, Christ talks of "other sheep." He is referring to the people in the Americas. He came to the Americas and taught the people there just as he had done in the Middle East. You can find the teachings of Christ in the Americas in 3 Nephi 11. When you read it there is a strong witness that comes that it is true, This witness comes as you read, ponder, and pray. Show more Show less
