Hi I'm Ethan

I'm the middle child of five boys. I'm serving a two-year mission in Utah before college. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on an acreage and went to school in a small town. I've known the same people all of my life, but I'm excited to serve a mission and go to college now that I have graduated. I enjoy anything musical, from singing in the choir to playing trombone in marching and concert band. I love reading fictional books, mostly fantasy and sci-fi. I like to play video games and enjoy watching sports, no matter what kind.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have always had a testimony of the truth of the church. I was born into a Mormon family and have been attending church all my life. When I was younger, I didn't really understand why we had to go every week and the meaning behind a lot of things being taught. Slowly over the years, I began to grasp the importance of the gospel. One of the most influential events in my life was the passing of my mother. Through my faith in the church, I was comforted by the truth that I would be able to see her again because of the plan of salvation. I decided to serve a mission because I know that it will have an enormous effect on my growth, both spiritually and mentally. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only completely true church and that the president of the church, Thomas S. Monson, was chosen by Heavenly Father as a prophet, seer, and revelator to pass along the word of the Lord.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in church activities in my individual ward and in my stake as well. I helped plan out youth activities when I was still in the young men. I was also called to serve on the Stake Youth Committee, where we organized activities and events for the stake as a whole. I participate in sacrament every week. I was recently called to serve a two year mission in Orem, Utah, where I will help spread the word of the Lord and teach others about the LDS Church.
