Hi I'm Evan Taylor

I am a missionary for the church in Richmond Virginia.

About Me

I was born in Provo Utah, and I have lived in Pleasant Grove my whole life. I was born and raised in this church. I enjoy writing scripts, screenplays, and short stories. I also enjoy directing and acting. In my free time, I make videos and music. I like listening to Alternative Rock and playing my Saxophone. I hope to pursue a career in Digital Media, namely Video Editing. My ultimate goal is to become a director of either film or stage.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been members for several generations. I personally believe the church is true. Although I was raised in this church, it didn't take my parents telling me it was true for me to believe it. The only way people can gain a knowledge of truth, is for themselves through prayer. I have a personal testimony of this, that stems from my own personal prayers and from my experience in this religion.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full time mission for the church by teaching the wonderful people of Virginia. It is so much fun to meet people and talk with them about The Plan of Salvation. Doing service is probably my favorite part of missionary work. I love being able to help people and see how much joy it brings them.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Evan Taylor
We do not. Joseph was a Prophet like Adam, Noah, Moses, etc. We respect him as a servant of the Lord who was given God's authority to lead the church, like the men mentioned previously. We worship only God the Father and his son Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Evan Taylor
The missionaries who will visit your home will talk about Jesus Christ. Christ and his Atonement are the center of this religion. The missionaries will teach about our lives on Earth and the Plan of Salvation, which answers questions about our purpose and how we can live with our Father in Heaven. Show more Show less
