Hi I'm Ethan

I spent my youth in Illinois. I learned to play Euphonium. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have three siblings, one of which is developmentally delayed. I have spent a lot of time playing an instrument in the high school marching band and concert band. I also love camping. I spent high school at the local community college, and got to meet all kinds of people. I really enjoy music. Astronomy is super interesting to me and I love reading about the stars.

Why I am a Mormon

Although my parents raised me as a Mormon, I had to find a personal reason to do so. For me it was the power of Jesus Christ to forgive me of my sins. As I read the Book of Mormon and prayed earnestly I developed and grew a testimony of Christ's great love for all His children on Earth, including me. I am a part of this church because it is so clear and consistent. When the world is such a muddled and confusing place I know I can go to church and find order and peace.

How I live my faith

I love spending time reading the Book of Mormon. I find so much peace while attending church services and help the church by planning youth events. Doing genealogy work is so wonderful and I spend much time learning about my ancestors. Doing these things helps me get closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ. He is such a strong example for me in my life and I strive to live like He did by self reflecting often and changing my behavior to become more Christ-like.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Mormons believe in helping all of Gods children, not just other Mormons. The church has programs around the globe to help those in need. Show more Show less
