Hi I'm Ethan Devey

Basketball is my favorite Sport and I'm obsessed with competition.

About Me

I absolutely love anything sports related or competitive especially basketball. I am attending Snow college right now and am pursuing a degree in Business or Statistics. I returned home from my mission about one year ago from the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Mission. I loved being a missionary and I love the Gospel even more since returning home and trying to figure out my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the truthfulness of The Book of Mormon. As Mormons we believe in the Bible and read it out if often, but The Book of Mormon is another volume of scripture that we use to learn about Jesus Christ. I know because of reading and praying about The Book of Mormon that it is true and this church is true. My life hasn't been easy, although I've been very blessed and am so grateful for it, I have had many challenges in my life. God at times has carried me through those hard times and I wanted to share it with others. As a missionary, being able to share my experience and the truthfulness of The Book of Mormon with others was the greatest happiness I have ever experienced. I know that you can be much happier by coming to a knowledge of The Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example/representative of Jesus Christ at all times! I enjoy sharing the message of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ! I left my life for two years to devote helping those who have never had the opportunity to experience this Gospell! I strive to help others rekindle the love of Christ in their lives and discover the Healing Power of the Atonement! I strive(I'm not always perfect) to read The Book of Mormon and Pray to my Heavenly Father every day.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Ethan Devey
Jesus Christ's Atonement made it so we can overcome a physical and a spiritual death!! When in Gethsemane he took on all the pains, sorrows, and sins of every one who has lived, lives, or will live on the Earth. He died on the cross and rose from the dead on the third day to overcome the physical death, so that we can all have a second life too... Jesus Christ sacrificed his life because he loves us! He wants us to return back to him, so by taking on the sins of the world, and dying and being brought back to life, we can use the Atonement in our lives to repent of our sins.He knows how we feel and if we can reach out to him and ask for his help, he will be there for us and help us! By repenting of our sins. being baptized by someone holding the Priesthood authority of God, and then taking the Sacrament each week, and regularly going to the temple. Through those steps we can return back to him and live with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ forever!!!!!!! Show more Show less
