Hi I'm Ethan

I grew up in Overton, Nevada and am serving in Columbus, Ohio as a missionary

About Me

I enjoy adventure! Anything outdoors is great such as: bungee jumping, kayaking, backpacking and camping, sports, etc... I was going to BYU-IDAHO in Rexburg, Idaho and am serving as a missionary in Columbus, Ohio. I played the Trombone throughout middle and high school and participated in the pep, concert, marching, and jazz bands. I am the youngest of seven kids and love it! At BYU-IDAHO I started studying communications-advertising, still unsure of what I want to do.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because there is no other church or place that has made me feel so special and helped me to feel the spirit of God so strongly. I did grow up in the church but like many that grow up in a faith questioned and swayed away. It came time to where I needed to make a decision on my beliefs and so I looked at the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and many others to see what I should do. As I listened and prayed and searched I felt the Spirit of God enter into my life, it wasn't super strong to the point where I said "this is true! What did I doubt!?",But was more of an assurance that I was going the right direction. I slowly followed and graduated high school with an idea of what I truly believed. After I worked the summer and went to school I came to the conclusion to serve a full time mission and soon left. As I have stuck to that feeling of assurance from the spirit, I have learned that this is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ! The only way to truly come to that knowledge is by reading the Book of Mormon and truly seeking to feel if it's true. I have done just that and know that it is the word of God and with the Bible and the Book of Mormon we now have the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ! I know it and I say this with God bearing witness, in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I am an active member of the church that likes to get involved with whatever I can. I have served as a Sunday School teacher (which is a class during church). I serve as a full time missionary right now and teach people about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ! I try to serve my fellow man as much as I can to help them to come closer to our Savior.
