Hi I'm Elder Evan Duker

I'm a home-schooled math lover. I'm an electric guitar enthusiast. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently being educated at home, and I enjoy (almost) every minute. I am currently a junior in high school. Being home-schooled has given me extra control over my studies, including allowing me to study math more at my own pace, which has been a serious plus. Among my other eclectic interests is a love of rock music, almost everything, from enjoying German metal like Rammstein, to classic rock, to grunge, alternative and punk, all the way to modernly produced contemporary. Part of this includes actually playing it on my electric guitar, and, just for fun, working on songwriting. The guitar is just about the most fun instrument to play, at least in my experience, and I have also found it to be the most versatile. Writing music is honestly one of the most fun things I have done: no matter how bad the music you create is, you still brought it into existence, and it feels great to be able to play it for anyone, and have them appreciate it as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have received a confirmation from the Holy Spirit that I am in God's church on the earth. I have felt that confirmation, and therefore I can't deny it. If I could just ignore it, and believe in no God, I am almost sure that I would not believe the things I do. I know there is a God. I know Jesus Christ is God's son, and that He made it possible to repent and return to God. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, and contains valuable truth not in the Bible. I know that God calls prophets to lead us today, just as He called prophets to lead men in ancient times.

How I live my faith

I live my faith mainly by trying to follow Jesus Christ's example by serving others. Service to others is one of the best ways I know to show God that I care about Him and His children and His other creations.
