Hi I'm Evan Nuss

I grew up between Baltimore, Maryland and Washington DC. I'm a youngest brother. I'm a little bit crazy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My biggest hobbies and interests: my family and friends, the outdoors, sports, music, and books, in that order. There are few things I love more than the simple time spent with family and friends, making memories and having conversation. I have 3 older brothers and 1 older sister. Then the outdoors, oh the sweet outdoors, how I love them. You wanna go hiking, camping, boating, or even just climb some trees, count me in. Sports are my next love. I play basically all of them, but ultimate frisbee, wrestling, and lacrosse truly have my heart. Then we have music. Now, I don't claim to have any type of talent in making it. I can sing decently and have a bit of rusty skill at the drums. But I absolutely love it, listening to it and making it. There are few things that can illicit stronger positive feelings from me than music. Everything from Mumford & Sons to Bastille to OneRepublic to Muse to Rise Against, I love basically all of it. Finally, books. I find so much joy in reading, in leaving my own little world to learn about another, especially when I need a break from people. Other than that, I have done 3 fun-filled and friend-filled semesters at BYU-Provo. Now I am a missionary for the LDS church in Rosario, Argentina.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who are very active in the LDS church. We have gone to church every Sunday, read scriptures, and prayed together as a family for as long as I can remember. But once I got a little older, probably around 14, it became clear that I had to decide for myself as to whether I wanted to continue down this path or not. Did I want to keep going to church? Did I want to keep praying and reading my scriptures? There was no lightning strike or other profound event which told me I should continue with Christ's church. It was a culmination of many small, seemingly insignificant events; a sum total of all the experiences I had had with the church and its teachings up to that point.

How I live my faith

The main way I live my faith is in trying to love others. The love of God is the very foundation of our existence and is the most powerful feeling I have ever felt. So, I try to share that with others. Currently, I am serving as a missionary and luckily for me, that means I have opportunities to show love to others everyday. Being a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints means that I am teaching people more about the beliefs and doctrines of our church. My purpose and priority as a missionary is to invite and help others come closer to Christ through certain actions and steps. My goal is to help people develop a stronger, more trusting and open relationship with God and His Son Jesus Christ.
