Hi I'm Evan Price

I grew up in Garden Grove, California. I love to swim, play water polo, and the beach. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I have been assigned to serve in the Argentina Neuquen mission and I couldn't be more excited. I played water polo and I swam in high school. I was also on an indoor soccer team with some of my friends. I love sports in general. I love to play guitar and sing. when my brother was in high school we played in battle of the bands and we won. After high school I attended BYU for a year which was a great experience. I made lots of good friends and i miss them a lot.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church. My parents brought me up and taught me all about this gospel. I love it and know that it is true with all my heart. I have studied and pondered and prayed deeply to know of its truth and I know without a doubt that this is the true gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ on the Earth today.

How I live my faith

My family has been involved a lot in our young men's program. I was able to serve my community while obtaining my eagle scout award, as well as helping other people with their projects. I have been a teacher to many different ages of kids and adults, and soon to the world. I live my faith by being an example to others in everything I do. I always make sure to not do anything that would bring shame to me, my family, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints, or our Heavenly Father. I am currently serving a mission which is hard, but i know that's what I am needed for right now.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Evan Price
´´We believe the bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly...´´ (fifth article of faith) We believe that the Bible is holy scripture because it contains divine and inspired writings from prophets since the world began. It holds the history of the Lord´s dealings with man since the beginning of time and also the Savior´s ministry on this earth. Through the New and Old testament in the Bible, we can know the teachings of Christ and we can learn the commandments which God has asked us to abide by in this life. Show more Show less

Who was Joseph Smith?

Evan Price
Joseph Smith was the Prophet of the Restoration of this church in these latter days. Through Joseph Smith, Heavenly Father restored the fullness of the true gospel on the earth, the same gospel that was set up and run by Jesus Christ when he was on the earth. Joseph Smith was just a young boy who prayed to know which church was right, and he was told by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in a vision that none of them were. He received instruction from them, and later plates of brass to be translated into the Book of Mormon. Through the power of the Priesthood, Joseph Smith performed the will of the Lord and restored the true church to the earth. Show more Show less

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Evan Price
I do not know about marriage, since I am not married yet, but i do know a lot about friendships and family relationships. One thing that we study very often are the Christlike Attributes. When we practicing living and developing Christlike Attributes, we are able to get along with other people much easier. When we are the kind of people that our Heavenly Father wants us to be, we are able to Love one another, and be kind to everyone we meet. Having those attributes will strengthen our relationships with people as we grow closer to Christ, and in turn, closer to each other. Show more Show less

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

Evan Price
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in growing so much because it is true. This is the only 100% true Church on the earth today and when people seek answers from the Lord with real intent, they come to know of its truthfulness as well. Since it is true, and it brings joy and happiness to the lives of its members, those members what to share the message they have learned with others to bring them that happiness as well. We all want to share the Gospel so that others can feel the peace and joy the true knowledge of Jesus Christ and His Church. Our Love for others leads to people being interested and through that, they are brought to the Church and given the opportunity to find out of its truthfulness for themselves. Show more Show less
