Hi I'm Ethan Schwartz

I grew up In Idaho. I know the church is true. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Ethan. I grew up in Idaho with my parents and attended School. Throughout School I took tech classes and became really familiar with computers. After that my family moved to Utah. There in Utah I got a job at a helpdesk center. Throughout that time I submitted my papers to go a mission and got called to serve in the Floridia Tallahassee Mission, and thats where I am at today.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm A mormon because I know that the gospel is true. I know that through christ, our redeemer, we can all return to him someday. That we can live with his presence as his children. I know he loves us so much. Over and over throughout the Centuries he has sent prophets to give his commandments and to give saving ordiances so we can return to him. He even sent his beloved Son Jesus Christ and during jesus' ministry he taught many people and healed them of infirmiries and in the end make the ultimate sacrifice for each and everyone of us. He was a perfect man and because he was perfect he was the only one that could allow for us to return to him. Even though the people rejected him after his ministry and all of his disciples were killed Heavenly Father again showed his love to us by revealing himself to a boy of the age 14. This boys Name was Joseph Smith. When Heavenly Father came and spoke to Joseph he told him that none of the these churches were true. He stated that they came close with their lips but far with their heart. Heavenly Father and Jesus helped Restore the gospel and the priesthood authority upon this earth and even continued to show their love by revealing an ancient record of the people that used to live in the Americas. A people that belived in god and followed his commandments at times and when they did they were blessed. It also talked about the people and how at times how they were unrighteous and how they were cursed and destroyed. This Ancient Record is another Testament of Jesus Christ that goes hand in hand with the Bible. He gave us this book so that we can better know him. At times throughout my life reading these scriptures and going to church has helped me feel comforted in times of great need. I would not be the person I am today without this gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively participate in church assignments. Before I got my mission call I would teach the elders Quarm lessons. Now that I am on my mission I get to teach everyone and its amazing!
