Hi I'm Ethan Garcia

I grew up in Kansas but moved to Texas my junior year of high school. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a huge basketball fan and history buff. I am going to college and hoping to become a history teacher. Originally, because I love animals I wanted to be a vet, but I decided that I didn't really want to do surgery. I still love animals especially dogs. I like to travel and spend time with my family. Camping especially in the mountains is amazing.

Why I am a Mormon

I have prayed and studied the scriptures and have gained my own testimony that Jesus Christ is my Savior. That there is a living prophet on the earth today and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I have been blessed through reading the Book of Mormon and as I follow our Savior's teachings have experienced miracles and been able to do things I thought were impossible. This gospel has brought my family closer together and provided peace and solutions to problems.

How I live my faith

I go to church and help to provide service both in my own congregation and to my community. I try to follow my Savior's example and look for ways to serve and help others. One of my favorite activities is to visit with the older generations and listen to their stories and help them. I have been a leader among people my own age and have had the opportunity to help organize and provide support when there have been natural disasters. I love to talk to others about my beliefs and love for my Savior Jesus Christ.
