Hi I'm Ethan

I was raised in Idaho. I'm a band geek. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm really into movies and enjoy spending time with my group of friends. My family is small, and we enjoy fishing and camping together. I've done a year of college with a focus on medicine. I'm also a fan of fantasy/science fiction books.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason that I have stayed in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for my whole life is based on an amazing experience that I had when I was 15 years old: I was having a "crisis of the faith," and was really questioning if our Father in Heaven existed, and if Jesus Christ was really our Savior. So I did as many people do, I prayed and asked God if he was really there, and if he was, to help me understand what it was he wanted me to do. And as I asked, an overwhelming feeling of love filled my heart, so much so that I was unable to speak and continue with my questions to my Father in heaven. I knew in that moment, without a shadow of a doubt that there is a God, and that he loves us his children. And as I have continued going to church and learning more about Jesus Christ, I know that he is the Son of God and took upon himself our sins so that we can return to live with God again. This gives me purpose in my life and a firm understanding of what God expects from me. I know that Christ lives, and that through the prophet Joseph Smith, Christ's true church has been restored upon the earth and that Jesus guide us just as he has in the past through prophets. I love him, and close in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

Right now, I am serving a two year mission in California to spread the love and happiness that I have come to know from living in the church. That means that I am devoting twenty four hours a day to serving the Lord and the people of California through teaching as Jesus Christ did, teaching as Christ did, and uplifting those that Christ would have me support.
