About the writers

The Sunday Pews Staff Writers


We, The Sunday Pews team of writers are all members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have a broad range of comedy and writing experience. We also have hopes, dreams and big decisions ahead of us in life, but one of the most rewarding things we get to enjoy is getting feedback from you about our content. Unless the feedback is bad. That hurts our feelings.

David Snell


David Snell is a proud member of the LDS Church. He is the Founder of The Sunday Pews and has experience writing for Mormon Newsroom Pacific, KBYU11, Classical 89 Radio, FamilyShare.com and plenty more. He doesn’t take himself too seriously and just wants to brighten your day a bit.

Contributing Authors:

Michael and Carolyn

Michael and Carolyn and their kids are a young family of Reese’-egg-loving goofballs. They both graduated in engineering, so their kids’ future nerdiness potential is pretty secure. Still, Carolyn keeps notes on her phone of the funny stuff Michael comes up with for the day he decides to trade his graphing calculator for a stand-up comedian’s mic. “Ain’t gonna happen,” says Michael. Carolyn’s opinion? Be prepared.

Tarron Lane

Tarron Lane is an Information Systems student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. He grew up on a ranch in the countryside in California, where he learned from first-hand experiences that the many quirks of life provide ample opportunities for a good laugh. He describes himself as “your typical tech-savvy computer geek”, but with a side-passion of trying to articulate humorous ideas and observations, so that he can share them with others.

Ethan T. Marston

Ethan T. Marston was raised in Illinois, but spent a good chunk of his life in Utah as well—he even returned to Utah to study writing and nutritional science at BYU. While there, he became very involved in the LDS LGBT+ community, he emerged from the depths of the closet, and (to his surprise) he met his wife, Allie. He and Allie are currently raising their baby daughter and trying to decide what the heck to do with their lives, but so far they dream of living in Montana. Ethan enjoys taking pretty pictures of nature, being social, petting fluffy animals, and writing fiction.
