Hi I'm Ethan

I'm one of ten kids. I'm an Eagle Scout. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Central Pennsylvania as one of ten children. I love reading, especially science fiction and fantasy. In high school I was part of theater programs and everything music related, from marching band to jazz band to chorus and musicals. I spent one year in Hawaii going to school to become a Science Teacher. While in Hawaii, I was known as The Unicycle Guy, and pretty much everyone knew who I was. I love baking and feeding the people around me. I'm excited to be a missionary in Brazil very soon!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I am a Mormon because I have seen miracles. I am a Mormon because there is no way for the church to be false. I've seen the sick healed and have repeatedly had my testimony of the church confirmed by the feelings I've had and the things I've seen. The church feels so right. I know that as I go to church, the truth becomes even more clear. The story of the church is nothing short of miraculous. Joseph Smith was absolutely a prophet, and the Book of Mormon confirms that. Every time I go to church, it is a special experience. I've been a Mormon since I was born, and it has always seemed so right. I've looked into other churches, I've done research, I've had my faith challenged in ways that put me to tears. But in the end, I always came back to this church. I know it is true. And I know it will always be true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my callings. I have been a teacher for the children for a year and a bit, teaching at first the eleven year olds and now the four and five year olds. I live my faith through service. I am an Eagle Scout in my local troop, and have held many leadership positions within the troop. I continue to serve and help those around me in organized service and just by seeing people in need. Living what I teach is the best way I've found for me to live my faith.
