Hi I'm Ethan Burgess

I grew up in rural Colorado, I design video games, I make YouTube videos, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a YouTube channel where I cover songs and do just about everything. I also love to design video games, and I plan to pursue that as a career. I'll be going to school soon for a Game Design major, after which I plan to start my own company making video games. I also am very passionate about reading and writing, and am working with my brother to write several novels.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the simple and pure truth. I know that the Book of Mormon is inspired of God, and that is all that matters to me. I love the gospel because it makes so much sense to me perfectly. Throughout my life I have recognized the truths and blessings that the gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me.

How I live my faith

I play the piano in church, and I am also the second assistant to my bishop. I've been in the Boy Scouts program my entire life and am an Eagle Scout. I will be on a mission for the next two years (December 2015 - 2017) serving the Lord and teaching the gospel in Arcadia, California.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Ethan Burgess
I, as well as other members of the Church, choose not to use Tobacco/Alcohol or drink coffee or tea because we have a huge respect for our bodies as gifts from God. We want to have complete control over our spiritual and physical bodes, and these substances restrict our ability to act on our own due to addiction and other properties. Show more Show less
