Hi I'm Ethan Fisher

I grew up in the military. I love History. I love reading. I'm an advocate of common sense. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a bookaholic. I would never even attempt to list all of the books that I have read because the list is quite extensive. I grew up in the military and spent 9 years of my life overseas with the Air Force. I lived in Okinawa, Japan for 4 years; Osan, Korea for 1 year; and Wormegay, England for an additional 4 years. I love music and my favorite genre would most likely be country, but I'm a big fan of choral and instrumental music as well. I started in choir my freshman year and have been in it ever since. I am technically a "bari-tenor" with my range being a strange, unholy combination of the tenor and baritone ranges. I have sung in barbershop quartets, chamber groups, small ensembles, and larger groups. I also play the tuba and and piano and have done since my 6th grade year. I am an Eagle Scout and I come from a family of 12 (2 parents, 5 sisters, 4 brothers excluding me) and 3 of my siblings are adopted from China. We love hanging out together; we play board games, we watch movies; we poke, prod, and tease one another and I wouldn't have it any other way. Other than that, I'm a pretty laid back Idaho country kid and enjoy many of the adventures, activities, and other aspects of life that accompany such a designation.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is the true church of Jesus Christ. Straight up. Of that there is not a single doubt in my mind. I have studied the scriptures, and I've prayed about them. I've heard the arguments from the other side and there isn't a single one that holds up to scrutiny. I'm a Mormon because Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and was chosen to restore Christ's true church to the earth again. I'm a Mormon because the Book of Mormon is true. I'm a Mormon because there is a prophet on the earth today by the name of Thomas S. Monson. I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true and that even though the members are human and imperfect, God is at the head. The standard has been erected.

How I live my faith

I think the best way to live one's faith, is to do just that; live one's faith. I do my best to be the best guy I can be, and I don't judge others for their decisions. I go to church every Sunday not because I am forced to, but because it's something that I have decided to do; it's something that I want to do. I follow the Lord's commandments not because I'm afraid of what will happen if I don't, but because I know that they are there for a reason and that in the end, they are what will keep me safest and bring me the most joy. I keep the commandments because I love and trust the Lord and I know that He wants the best for me. I think that the key to making it through life happily is to trust in the Lord and understand that everything you experience is an experience to learn from, it is an opportunity given you from the Lord to help you learn and grow. When you finally realize that, it turns tough times into a compliment! Because it means that the Lord knows that you can handle it.
