Hi I'm Colby Evans

I grew up in Utah. I love athletics. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports and being active. I grew up playing baseball, soccer, basketball, and football. Eventually I just focused on baseball and played for my High School. I have aspirations of playing in college. Athletics were my life growing up and have remained that way since graduating High School. I also worked hard in the Scouting program and I eventually earned the rank of an Eagle Scout. I enjoy learning new things and reading books. I love spending time with my friends and my family. I like to play games and watch movies. I do enjoy the outdoors, especially camping and hiking.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up LDS and as a young boy and a teenager I went to church because it was one of the rules to live in my parents house. I did not understand how necessary it was to go to church. I'd like to say that now I enjoy going to church. In fact I need to go to church. I have come to know that my Father in Heaven loves me and that I have the opportunity to live with him again. I know that the only way to be able to return to live with my Heavenly Father is through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that because Jesus Christ took upon him the sins of the world and that He died for each of us, we have the chance to become cleansed from our sins and the chance to be resurrected. I am truly grateful for the Atonement and the chance that it gives me to improve myself. I know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ and His Gospel, I can be happy. I can feel joy. I know that everyone who follows the Gospel of Christ by having Faith in Him, Repenting of their sins, being Baptized for the remission of sins, receiving the Gift of The Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the end truly will be happy in this life and will be prepared to return to live with their Father in Heaven. I can promise everyone, that being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and by following the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that they will be blessed with joy and they will be protected.I know this to be true and I know that going to church is very important to help us stay on the path that leads back to our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I served as a teacher in the primary, teaching the young children about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am currently serving a mission in the Jamaica Kingston Mission.
