Hi I'm Ethan

I am from American Fork Utah. I have been called to serve a mission in Calgary Canada speaking Mandarin. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of 6. I have 1 older sister and 2 younger brothers. I just graduated from high school. I love sports and music. My favorite band of all time is Twenty One Pilots and my favorite sports team is the Los Angeles Dodgers. I love to play basketball and I have previously fenced, played soccer, and played baseball. I plan on going to BYU for college and I have been called to serve in the Calgary, Canada Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the Church, so I don't have a big conversion story, but I truly know that this Church is true. My path to truth has definitely been a gradual climb. My testimony has come through consistent study of the scriptures and daily prayer. As I did these things and kept the commandments I just noticed blessings around me that would be absent if not for my testimony in the gospel. I truly know that this Church is true. I continue to follow Christ, because I have found a hope that comes from the atonement that pushes me through any trial that I have ever experienced. I know that Heavenly Father know and loves each of us and that Christ suffered specifically for each of us. He wants us to utilize the atonement and gain hope through it's power. I also know that the Book of Mormon is true, and I can always fall back on it's teachings when other doubts arise. I love this gospel and I know it's true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my everyday treatment of people. I have always prayed and asked the Lord to allow me to be a positive influence on those around me. I have truly been blessed to have opportunities everyday to serve others in small ways and show charity towards them. I have also served in youth leadership which has been a great blessing in my life. It is amazing when a group of young men can come together and build off each others faith in Jesus Christ. I also am living my faith by making the decision to serve a full time mission for the church in Calgary, Canada. I truly believe that as I act as a instrument in God's hands that my faith will shine to those that I associate with.
