Hi I'm Ethan

I grew up in Idaho. I am a musician, a runner, a pilot, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a family diary farm. I moved pipe and milked cows growing up. Music has always been an enormous part of my life. It is such a blessing in my life-I feel closer to God when I participate in uplifting music. I am a runner and have been since I was a little lad. I am training to be a pilot right now. It is amazing!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is Jesus Christ's true church led by his living prophet Thomas S. Monson. I read the Book of Mormon cover-to-cover when I was 12 years old. I prayed about it in my room upon completing it. As I prayed, I felt peace and truth beyond anything I had ever experienced before. I KNOW that the Book of Mormon is true and was translated by Joseph Smith, who was a prophet of God, just as Moses and John the Baptist were. Everything good in my life has come from my membership and my faith and testimony in the gospel and in my Savior, Jesus Christ. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple of years ago. It was the hardest thing I had ever been through, but I have never felt Gods love more powerfully and abundantly more than I did then. I know that if we try to follow God's plan, we can feel peace and true joy.

How I live my faith

I try to follow my Savior Jesus Christ by going to church, saying my prayers, and reading my scriptures. I study his life and his teachings so that I can more fully use his atonement and become more like him. I follow the prophet and sustain my church leaders. Most of all, I try to live as my Heavenly Father would have me live-a clean happy life, and the way I do that is by keeping the commandments and following the scriptures.
