Hi I'm Ethan Evans

I am the youngest child in a family of 7. I think laughter is a gift from God. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest in a family of 7 kids. I was born in San Diego and lived there until I was 9. I then lived in Las Vegas for 4 years where we, as a family, made some wonderful friendships. After our time in Las Vegas my family moved to a small town in Missouri. While moving to a less than rural area was the last thing that I wanted, it was the best thing for me. I learned to enjoy things that are commonly noted as insignificant. I enjoy sunny days, the smell of fresh cut grass, and laughing. I love laughing. I love making people laugh. I believe that laughter has the power to turn a bad day into a good one. I enjoy cars, dirt bikes, country music, and my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because it contains the fullness of the gospel. I am a member because when I read the Bible and see the church that Christ established, I recognize that this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is in fact back on the earth. I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it. I have received an answer to my prayers. That answer has lead me to do all that I can in order to serve God. I am a member of this church largely because of a faithful family. A family that held strong to the gospel. A family that taught correct and true principals within the walls of the home. I am eternally grateful for my family. I believe that if we want to accomplish any task, we do we must find a motivating factor to do so. I know that this gospel is true. My motivation to do my best is my family. All 6 siblings their spouses and children. My parents, who in my eyes, are angelic. Grandparents, Cousins, Great Aunts and Uncles, second third and fourth Cousins twice removed. To my family...even my heavenly family.

How I live my faith

Currently I am serving a mission in the London England Mission. While it has been one of the most difficult things I have ever experienced, never have I been happier. I know that as we put forth our best effort, the Lord will bless us. I share the gospel with all those whom I come in contact with. I do this not for personal gain but because I love Jesus Christ. I have experienced the happiness that this gospel provides and it is that same happiness that I am trying to share with the people of England. When I was younger, I was taught that this was the true church but I didn't know for sure. I now know that it is; and the wonderful thing is everyone can know for themselves! If we ask God, with a honest desire, he will reveal it to us. We are his children. He loves us. He wants us to return home. For these reasons, he has revealed his teachings. We know exactly what we need to do in order to return home. Follow the map. Read The Book of Mormon.
