Hi I'm Ethan

I'm a musician. I'm a sports fan. I'm going on a mission. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a college student studying instrumental music performance. I love being with my family and my friends. I love to laugh and tell jokes. I love to make music and I love how it makes me feel. I love playing and following sports. I love being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the joy that it gives me and the purpose that it gives me. I have a knowledge of why I'm on the earth and what my ultimate goal is and where I came from. I have a knowledge that God is our loving Heavenly Father. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer and that through Him, I can return to my Heavenly Father and enjoy eternal happiness with Him in His kingdom. While I am an imperfect person, I am able to be forgiven of my sins and transgressions through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I have seen this power in my life. I have a knowledge that God loves me and wants what is best for me and that He is there to help me every step of the way if I will just reach out to Him and seek His guidance. I can come to church every week and learn more of His gospel and what I can do to become closer to Him and stay on the path that ultimately leads to His presence. There is a joy found in being a faithful Mormon that can be found nowhere else. I know that if I will live the gospel, Christ's Atonement can make up for my imperfections and shortcomings. I know without a doubt that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that when we read it we can come closer to God and experience more fully the joy that God, our Heavenly Father, intended for us to have in this life. I know that Jesus Christ lives. I know that He loves me and that He loves you. I know that He suffered for all of your pains, sorrows, afflictions, and sins and that He knows exactly what you're going through and how to help you through it because of His atoning sacrifice. There is no sin too great, no soul too wayward, no life too broken because of Jesus Christ. There is always a way back to Him and to eternal joy and happiness.I know that there is a living prophet on the earth today and that he receives revelation that can guide us through the tumults of this life. This is my testimony that I give in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every week and trying to follow the example of Jesus Christ in my interactions with others and in all that I do and say. I love going to church and feeling the warmth of the Spirit of the Lord there. I learn so much about the Gospel of Jesus Christ every week and I am able to interact with friends. I try to lift others when they are down and I love making others happy. I try to portray the joy that I have received as a result of having the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life.
