Hi I'm Ethan

I spent my childhood along the Pacific Coast. I love trap shooting, drawing, and science. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third oldest of seven children. I took interest in chemistry while in high school and am in the process of earning a bachelors of science in chemistry from BYU-I. My hobbies include running, drawing, designing, and exploring the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and so it was simply a way of life for me as I grew up. For most of my childhood, I was rarely bothered by the fact that there were so few members of the LDS church at my schools. As I aged, I gave more thought to my faith and did what every investigator of the church is asked to do: to find out for our self if the church was true. I spent several years pondering this and eventually concluded, given the soundness of the church's teachings, that this church contained the fullness of the gospel. I felt that this was right because of the bright examples of other members around me as they demonstrated such virtues as faith, hope, charity and love. Moreover, it was the dedication and sacrifice that so many members gave to service that convinced me that I should also make the gospel a major instrument in my life.

How I live my faith

I enjoy participating in service programs and have made this a part of my life by becoming a full time missionary. I have found that I am most happy after a full day's worth of hard work and, therefore, have made it one of my goals to wake up every morning knowing that I have accomplished something important and will accomplish many more things.
