Hi I'm Evan Hawes

I grew up in West Jordan, UT. I am the second oldest in a family with four kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am serving a mission in Mendoza, Argentina. I plan to go to Brigham Young University when I get home. I love to play soccer. I am so grateful for my family every day. I love just being with my friends, slurpies and cookie dough.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church so it was always second nature and my own full conversion happened about when I was twelve. I always believed what I was taught and always knew about my Father in Heaven and Jesus but my true testimony came when I received the Priesthood. I started to really understand the scriptures and could relate and pick out specific instances of feeling the Holy Ghost in my life. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church and that the Book of Mormon is true and that Thomas S. Monson is the true Prophet today.

How I live my faith

I am serving my mission to teach others about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I try to live my life in a way that everyone around me is happy and that I am proud of what I have done and that I can feel that my Heavenly Father aproves of what I am doing.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Evan Hawes
The Book of Mormon is another witness of Jesus Christ's life. It is about the people who lived on the American Continent before, during, and after Christ's Reign. It was written by the prophets the Lord called in the Americas during those times. It supports and verifies the Bible. It promise that those who read and sincerely pray about it will know by the Holy Ghost that it is true. Show more Show less
