Ethan Fausett, Lionheart Mentoring

addiction recoveryEthan Fausett did a lot of things growing up.  At the age of 16 he graduated high school and started college.  He also was a member of the planning committee for the World Congress of Families IX.  Ethan was an intern for a lobbyist group at the Utah state capitol for three years.  When he was 18 he was elected as a state delegate for his political party and got a job working in the political sphere.

However, through all of that he had a secret which brought him tremendous shame and depression.  Though he didn’t let anyone see it he struggled with an addiction.  Right before he turned 19 he made the choice to open up and get help.  Now Ethan is almost 20, preparing to serve a mission for his church, and spends his time finding ways to uplift the world around him.

Ethan is a trained Lionheart Mentoring speaker and mentor through which he works with youth to overcome obstacles and achieve dreams. His goal in life is to help people know that they are loved and that they can overcome any of their trials.  And he wants to do that in any way he can, big or small.
