Hi I'm Preston

I'm a barefoot runner, writer, bowling aficionado. I love ultimate frisbee and reading. I do financial planning. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student. I'm self-taught piano and love to write music and sing. I'm a voracious reader and love to write as well. In fact, I'm in the process of writing several books and hope to publish my first in the near future. I'm an active person and enjoy barefoot running, ultimate frisbee, bowling, and many other sports. I speak Spanish fluently (which you'd never guess by looking at me) and love my family and my life. I'm single, but I'm working on it.

Why I am a Mormon

The Lord has blessed me with a questioning mind and a desire to learn and improve myself. I remember when I was 15 years old in an interview with my bishop. I was seriously questioning whether I had a testimony and I mentioned that to him. He assured me that I did in fact have a testimony, but I wasn't satisfied. I knew that if I was ever to know if this church was true or not, I needed to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. I had prayed on many occasions before asking whether the church was true, but had never received any definitive answer. On one occasion late at night, I knelt by my bed and prayed asking again if the church were true. I was blessed with a great feeling of love that let me know that all I had been taught regarding Jesus Christ and his church was true. The church has been a great blessing to me. It challenges me to be a better person and to live an excellent life. I'm given opportunities to serve and to grow in ways I wouldn't otherwise have available to me.

How I live my faith

I'm in charge of directing a group of fellow ward members in making sure young single adults who aren't of our faith or who just aren't involved know about activities that are going on and to answer any questions that they have. I'm also a home teacher which means I get to visit a few ward members every month to make sure that they are doing well and that their needs are taken care of.
