Hi I'm Ethan

I'm married with two girls and another on the way. I love lifting weights at the gym and playing golf. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was an investment advisor for 10 years before changing jobs to be a stay at home dad. I love hanging out with my two girls and staying active at the gym. I've been married to my wonderful and hard working wife for 14 years. We like taking family vacations and have been to a lot of great places. I am a scratch golfer and would love to pursue trying to make it as a professional someday.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were converts to the church shortly before I was born. I have been attending church and church functions since I can remember. I didn't know of the truth of the gospel officially until after reading the Book of Mormon in my teenage years and praying sincerely to Heavenly Father. I received a warm feeling of the truth of the gospel and the church in this prayer. Although far from being perfect, I have been trying to follow God's commandments and our Prophets teachings in my daily life. I also assume the responsibility I have as a father to teach my children wrong and right and prepare them for life. I continue to look forward to the day my family and I will be reunited with our savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am currently in our wards Elder's Quorum presidency. I love my calling of teaching and finding ways to strengthen the men in our group to become better fathers, husbands, and leaders. As a mormon I know the importance of being a good example and living my faith. I try to choose the right whenever possible. My faith gives my great strength and balance in understanding all the complexities of life. I feel so privileged to understand why I'm hear and where I'm going.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Man is not perfect and will make mistakes. We believe no unclean thing can live in the presence of our Heavenly Father, so there must be a way for us to become perfect like him. Jesus Christ suffered for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane so that when we sincerely repent, we can be forgiven of those sins. In Doctrine and Covenants 5842, God had promised, "Behold, he who has repented of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more." Show more Show less
