Hi I'm Preston

Sports. Music. Outdoors. Mormon.

About Me

I am from a small town in southern Nevada. I am the second oldest of four kids, also being the only boy. Growing up i was always outside, I love hunting, fishing, camping, and sports, football especially. Being from a small town my friends and I usually had to use our imagination to come up with fun stuff to do, i would say we succeded in that! Although i am a desert rat I would snowboard every day if i could. I love music and playing the guitar. I attended Utah Valley University for a while, majoring in buisiness management. I then moved down to St. George to attend Dixie State. I would not be able to live life working behind a desk, so as of now i plan on following the footsteps of my dad and getting on the Las Vegas city fire department. Throughout my life i have had many great examples to me. My family has taught me to work hard and focus on the good things in life. I was lucky enough to have an awesome group of friends that inspired me to be who i am today by simply setting that example when we were growing up. I am currently serving a mission, and I love every minute of it

Why I am a Mormon

Although i grew up in the church, I was not always an active participant. I had the great example of my family and friends around me to show me what i need to do to be truly happy in this life. I am a Mormon because that example set for me has helped me realize and want to know for myself the benefits of being obedient to the lord. I know I am much happier serving the lord and following the teachings of the Book of Mormon. We all face difficult trials on this earth that we cannot take on alone. I know that reading the Book of Mormon, learning from its stories, and prayerfully seeking the truth will increase our faith in the lord, and will help us through our struggles and give us peace and joy in this life, knowing that everything happens for a reason.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a representative of Jesus Christ in my actions, and try my best to obey God's commandments, although i am not perfect. There is a positive side to everything in life, although we might have to dig to find it at times. I have a strong belief that everything happens for a reason, whether it is going to effect you, or if it will effect the people around you. Be the example to those around you.
