Hi I'm Ethan

I was born in Pennsylvania, but I live in Moorhead, Minnesota. I have a junior black belt in Taekwondo. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a high school student, a boy scout, an almost-unicyclist, a junior black belt, brother, and son. I hold the rank of Life scout, and I am working towards my Eagle rank. I say, "almost-unicyclist," because I am still learning. I also love to read, especially within the fantasy genre.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. Each of my grandparents were converts to the Church. I have read the Book of Mormon a few times, and I can feel its truth. I have a firm testimony of Jesus Christ, and that Joseph Smith Jr. was called by Him to be a prophet. I have faith that Christ's true church was restored through Joseph Smith and still exists today as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My testimony is a source of joy and peace for me. I know that God loves all of us more than we can comprehend, and that we are all His children. I have faith that Thomas S. Monson, his counselors, and the 12 apostles have been called of God to be His prophets. It is amazing, in this challenging world we live in, to be guided in our lives by God's word.

How I live my faith

I attend early-morning (6:00 am) seminary, which is held for most of the school year on weekdays. I home teach each month. I have a youth leadership position that involves service and organizing activities.
