Does evolution fit into the LDS Church gospel?
According to professors at LDS Church-owned Brigham Young University,
evolution does fit into the gospel. While this is a contentious issue for some, you can read more about the Church's official stance on evolution over at the FAIR LDS website.
When I was a student at BYU, a Church-owned university, I was taught about evolution by pro-evolution professors who took science very seriously. These professors did not tolerate the simplistic anti-evolution arguments that some students brought with them, but they were generally patient and gave out tons of web resources where people could research the topic for themselves.

Even though I know a lot about the Mormon religion, I still consider myself a beginner student of Jesus Christ and his teachings. On this website I write about any spiritual or Mormon church-related topic that catches my interest. Latest Quote
Celebrating Our Differences
"Obviously the Lord has created us with different personalities, as well as differing degrees of energy, interest, health, talent, and opportunity. So long as we are committed to righteousness and living a life of faithful devotion, we should celebrate these divine differences, knowing they are a gift from God. We must not feel so frightened, so threatened and insecure; we must not need to find exact replicas of ourselves in order to feel validated as women of worth. There are many things over which we can be divided, but one thing is needful for our unity—the empathy and compassion of the living Son of God."
--Patricia T. Holland, "One Thing Needful," October 1987
