Hi I'm Preston

I live in East Texas. I love my family and this gospel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! My name is Preston. I'm an 18 year old senior in East Texas. I love music, history, and math. If I ever have free time, you will find me reading a good book. =] I leave for my mission soon, and I am super super excited to get to share what I have learned to be absolute peace and joy with other people. I love speaking in front of people, and hope that I get plenty of opportunities to do just that. And, I love you!

Why I am a Mormon

Many people have asked me before why I choose to live the way I do. When asked that question, I look in myself to see why. I remember the absolute peace that I feel when I pray and when I know that I will get to live with my Heavenly Father forever. I remember the great joy that I feel when I see someone's life touched by His hand. And I remember how amazing it is to know, to truly know without doubt, that there is a man by the name of Jesus Christ that loves me enough to pay the ultimate price for my sins. These feelings and this knowledge that I have gained after prayer and living the gospel is what keeps me moving forward. I never want to lose those feelings, those feelings that I know come only from living the gospel in the way that He has designed for me to live it. And for those reasons, I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

In my church, I am a Ward Missionary, which means that I have the opportunity to visit other people in the area with the missionaries. It is such an amazing experience! I can promise you that they are called of God to share His love with all of the children on this Earth. Living my faith can sometimes be challenging, especially while at school, but as I continue to pray for strength and guidance it makes it so much easier to let the light of Jesus Christ shine in my life. Living as an example of Christ's love is the best way to live my faith. It is my hope that when others see me that they may also see the love of Christ in my countenance. I hope that I can be that example that I want to be so dearly.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is just like living life: simply amazing =] ! As we live our life according to the standards that have been given to us through the Book of Mormon and the Holy Bible, we feel peace and joy that have not previously been known to us. Show more Show less
