Hi I'm Ethan

I love music very much. I love to play all of the brass instruments along with the piano. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music. It's a part of my everyday life. I'm in my High School Wind Emsemble and Top Jazz Band. I am also the president of all the 14-15 year old boys in my LDS congregation. I generally have mixed feelings about school, but no matter what, I tend to do well. I just finished my Freshman year with a 4.0 GPA. I find it hard to be social but I force myself to. I think about just about everything. I try to be a leader in any situation. I've just started driving and I love it. The thrill of being behind the wheel is unreal. I tend to make friends easier with girls than boys simply because the girls tend to mature faster than the boys. I can also tend to just jump from topic to topic if you can't tell already. I'll have two brothers serving LDS missions in a couple weeks.

Why I am a Mormon

My region had a big Youth Conference recently. During this Youth Conference, I met many new people and made some great new friends. One night, there was a concert with Kenneth Cope. I was sitting next to a friend I had made the day before. I was just enjoying the music as I always do, when suddenly I noticed my friend next to me was crying. I was determined to figure out why, so I began to listen closely to the lyrics of the songs. Slowly, I began to feel the same way my friend did. I eventually started scratching her back, partly to help her feel comforted, but also to help me share our experiences. Without her, I wouldn't have felt that amazing feeling. If you're ever feeling unloved or broken, I urge you to go listen to a song that hit me very hard at that concert that night. It's called "Broken" by Kenneth Cope. These feelings I had at the concert were feelings of love from God. They've given me faith to keep going

How I live my faith

Like I mentioned earlier, I am the president of all of the 14-15 year old boys in my congregation. I myself am 15, so you can guess that it becomes difficult to be a figure of authority. I get the job done though. When it comes to really living my faith, though, I like to think of myself as an arm to lean on for those that are feeling down. I've helped many of my friends with their problems the best I can, knowing full well that if I had to deal with their trials, I would be in a seriously tough position. I try to base almost everything I do around the term "chivalry." It is my second greatest life aspiration right under being like Christ. Chivalry can be defined as ultimate respect for women and children; always putting them first. I can tell right away when one of my girl friends is feeling down, and that's when I try to drop everything and help them out. I can't stand to see a girl sad. If I can make a girls day, then I will be the happiest man alive. I always have an open ear for anyone that wants to talk though problems.
