Hi I'm Ethan Carlson

I am from San Antonio, Texas. I was just called to serve in the Canada, Halifax mission. I will be speaking French. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love music! I sing and listen to music on a daily basis. I love all kinds of rock but I'm partial to 90's alt rock, 70's Rock n' Roll, and early 2000's indie. I love basketball. My favorite team is the San Antonio Spurs. I've lived here in San Antonio for most of my life and I love it here. I love missionary work! I love sushi and Thai food.

Why I am a Mormon

Happiness is why I am a Mormon. This gospel has brought me so much joy! There have been times in my life where I wasn't living my religion as much as I should have and during those times I really felt a disconnect with The Spirit. When I live the teachings of Jesus Christ, the spirit is always with me and nothing feels quite like that. I have a testimony of this gospel. I know it is true and that knowledge is more than enough to motivate me to act and follow Christ by being a member of His church.

How I live my faith

I have decided to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been called to the Canada, Halifax mission. I will learn French and serve for a period of 24 months. Some might ask, why do you give up 2 years of the prime of your life? I do it because I love God. I don't think of it as a sacrifice; I think of it as a privilege. I can't wait to teach all of God's children the gospel that has brought me so much joy!
