Hi I'm Ethan Smith

I was born and raised in Utah. I graduated from Brighton High school. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest of 4. I have 3 sisters and no brothers. I have lived in the same state all of my life. I enjoy all sports but mainly have focused on basketball. I played on the high school team. It was a great learning experience for me. Working with a team and being able to accomplish one goal as united individuals was wonderful. I am Serving a mission and report to the MTC on August 17th. I am serving in the Quezon City, Philippines mission and am so excited.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true and it has blessed my life so much. I have seen this church change the lives of many and I am so excited to introduce the church to new people on my mission. I know and have felt of the truthfulness of the restoration of the church and know that Joseph Smith restored it through his faith.

How I live my faith

I had a unique experience going through the youth program. I was pretty much alone a lot of the time and was the only young man that would go to church. This however allowed me to grow close to my leaders and helped with maturing faster than my peers. I often had to go and visit older ward members on Sundays and take them the sacrament. It was a very good experience and I will always be grateful for this opportunity. I learned so much from serving and I grew closer to the Savior in so many different ways.
