Hi I'm Seth Evans

I'm an English Teacher and a Writer. I'm single. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Life is a roller-coaster of opportunities. I have been blessed with many interests and opportunities. I have worked as an after-school care giver, youth camp rowing counselor, an English Teacher, an Assessment Director, and as an Title Clerk (Mortgages). I have taken college courses in education, English, law, supply-chain, and hospitality management. I have had successes, and I have had failures from which I have tried to learn. The plan and pattern of my life has been far from what I thought it would be. I thought that I would be a husband and a father by now. I thought that I could make a living as a teacher while giving something of great importance that I enjoyed. I thought that I would enjoy travel and getting to know the cultures of the earth. I have changed course many times in my career - and I have learned and enjoyed most of those "missteps." I haven't gotten to travel outside of North America, but I still look forward to it. I haven't gotten to publish a book yet. I haven't finished my business degree. And I no longer work in education, though I enjoyed it, and I feel I was good at it. I have been blessed by many good friends. I particularly enjoy the changing beauty of the world, the power of words, science fiction and fantasy novels, the magic of cinematography, strategy games, well balanced and well worked puzzles, political thought, the variety of culture, and the grace and resilience of the human spirit. I'm Seth.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. And I grew up in a strong ward in Arizona where the Church is strong in numbers. There was social pressure to conform to the standards and practices of the Church. This was a blessing, but I had to face that point when I needed my own sense of the truth. I have seen how the miracles of God can happen quickly but that they often happen over the course of months and years. Before my mission, I have delved into the scriptures: the Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants. I had been told, and was learning for myself in my mind that they taught exactly the same plan and reality of our Father and of Jesus Christ. I knew that the teachings were good and true; I believed that they were of God. After a few months on my mission, I received a more powerful witness during prayer that I could not put off as another's good will or energy. It was a calm and confident sensation that was like and greater than those I had felt from parents and friends. I have participated in healing blessings. One baby that I have participated in blessing had a large swelling and obstructed blood flow. He was quickly and dramatically healed. I have had strong points of personal revelation to teach beyond what I understood regarding Mathew 11:28 and for my personal choices in life. One of these times was during a movie entitled The Testaments. A revelation was symbolized through sunlight being filtered through trees. The care and love of our Father in Heaven to provide such communication to us overwhelmed me. I have seen God's love as He has helped me and others grow through our own decisions. I know God's plan creates stronger and happier people. I am blessed to know people who live with joy and a willingness to listen and compliment because they live with the purpose and peace of gospel truths on a daily basis. I am a Mormon because I have come to know that it is simply the best way to live.

How I live my faith

I am a home teacher. All members of the church get to participate in teaching strengthening one another, comforting and mourning where it is needed, supplying and serving when it is needed, and standing as a witness of Christ by living love and speaking truth. I am a young men's adviser working with scouts and a Duty to God Award. I have served as a secretary to the Bishop and as a primary teacher.
