Hi I'm Calvin Ethington

I grew up in Utah. I live in Arizona. I am a redneck in most ways, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've played most sports, I have a dog and a cat, I drive a Jeep, I love the outdoors, and I enjoy hunting. Playing guitar is one of my favorite things to do, especially when I'm spending time with friends and family. I look forward to serving a mission in Idaho, and plan on attending college in Arizona after that.

Why I am a Mormon

Living the Gospel and following the principles that I have been taught by my parents and the Church have blessed me with security, purpose, and a joy that comes from serving and helping to make others happy. I have no idea what my life would be like without the Gospel, as it has been a driving factor and major influence in the lives of my ancestors and I. Because I follow the Lord's commandments He has blessed me and my family with a happiness that cannot be achieved through worldly things.

How I live my faith

I love going to church youth activities, hometeaching, and teaching the youth. I attend church weekly, and love going to the Temple. I am about to spend two years on a mission in Idaho, where living my faith will be more literal than ever before.
