Hi I'm Ethan

I grew up in Idaho, live in Maine. I'm that guy who will make you question yourself. I'm a huge fan of Alma. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Ethan. I grew up in Idaho with my Mom. My Dad lives in Nevada. Both places feel like home to me, between summer and school growing up I learned to love wherever I was planted. I have two brother's and a sister, I would do anything for them. I'm the oldest and I love it. I like to camp, shoot stuff and just have fun. I love to hang out with friends and be myself. I listen to a lot of different kinds of bands, everyone has their preferences, but I'm chill with just about anything. I love to sing even though i may not be at the top of my game any more! I know I'm super goofy, and that's what makes me, me. I served my mission in the Michigan Detroit Mission and I LOVED it! Of course there were troubles and I've had my fair share of scares but I loved preaching the Gospel; I may not be classified as a "preachy" Mormon anymore but don't get me wrong, I love my faith, I love my member-ship in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I love the term Mormon and most importantly I love my Savior Jesus Christ! I gladly take upon the name Mormon upon myself because of the man who the nick-name is termed after, he was a great man and I know that i can too become a great man as long as continue to follow the teachings of our Savoir.

Why I am a Mormon

Hmm.. that's a good question. Well I'm a Mormon because I love it! Everything that is good in my life I consider to be a blessing. I know I'm not the picture perfect Mormon but I am slowly heading to where I know my Savior wants me to be. I know that the closer I live my life to the Gospel standards the better I can become and the easier it will be for the Lord to mold me to what He knows I can really be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the example that Christ gave. I know I'm not the perfect example but I try my hardest. I live my faith by sharing my testimony whenever I can, whether it be a 2 second testimony on the word of wisdom to my freinds, or a talk in church. I live my faith by helping others when I am able. I love to share the Gospel, and that's why I am serving a mission.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Nope! Mormon's are deffinitly NOT required to serve missions! It is a very personal choice for a missionary to choose to go and serve the Lord! Some missionaries feel pressured but they still choose for them selves nonetheless. Yes, there is a very very strong tradition in the church for missionary service, but no one is required!

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Well they're Great! haha I believe that Mornom women are some of the strongest women I've ever met! They take so much upon themselves and do it all it blows my mind. They have a special light in their eyes, and it shows to all the world! Mormon women are very equal if not more important, we counsel with every member of our families when its time to make a decision, and most of the time if the guy is smart, he leaves it up to them! And if you dont believe me, look it up in Cor. 11:11, it says it all right there! Show more Show less
