Hi I'm Ethan

I live in Mona Utah ; born and raised. I'm serving a mission in Fort Worth, Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well i'd like to consider myself a country boy. Why, because not only do I live out in the hoorah's but I've also got the mentality of one. I'm outside when I can be I like paintballing, airsofting, hunting wild beasts, swimming, wraslin' the dog, hiking in the mountains, feeding the cows out at the orchard, and talkin' like I belong there; to name a few. I've earned the Eagle Scout award, I served as both Sophomore and Senior class presidents at Juab High School. I want to be an officer in the Marine Corps, because I believe that the country I live in has blessed me with a lot and I want to give it something back and I want to help preserve it so that others can enjoy the same blessings. And, I am a firm believer in cake and ice cream after a big ole Sunday steak and potato dinner.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this faith and can honestly say that I have never parted from it. From a young age I was told of my loving Father in Heaven and Savior Jesus Christ. For a while I depended on my parents' testimony to know that the church I was attending was Christs church on the earth. But ya know, after a while I started to learn how to read a little better, and the Book of Mormon didn't seem like that big of a book, and so I sat down and read it. When I got done with it all, I knelt down and asked my Heavenly Father if the book I had just read was true. Turns out it is, and here I am in Texas spreading the good word. It's a simple story, but ya know what, all we need to do is exercise that small bit of faith, humble ourselves, and ask, and we're promised in James 1:5 that He will give us the answer.

How I live my faith

Throughout His life, Christ sought to teach, serve, and bless the lives of all those around him; to ultimately bring them closer to Him and our Father in Heaven. Being a Christian, I have sought to follow His example and do my best to be just like Him by: Serving others. Ever since I knew what scouting was I was all in. I have spent somewhere close to eleven years serving others and my family and helping them have a great ole life. But, there were plenty of opportunities to serve outside too. Ya know, life is tough, and sometimes people need a little boost; and something as simple as a smile and a good ole howde can really help someone to feel noticed and wanted. Everyone deserves that don't ya think? Spreading the good word. I did grow up in Utah and so I didn't have too many friends from other faiths, but with the ones I did have I did my very best to be all that my Savior would have me be, and took every chance I could to stand up and proclaim what I knew to be true.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Do we believe Women are equal to Men? You betcha we do! Adam recieved Eve as a help meet. Now what exactly does that mean? To give you the simple man's version it means that they were both to depend on each other and be equals in all things. That means, to be equal partners in decision making, children raising, and all aspects of working together as a team. I hope that helps. Show more Show less
