Hi I'm Preston

I grew up in Boise, Idaho. I am a very active Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors! I go camping, mountain biking, hunting, fishing, back packing, and many other things in the summer. In the winter I pretty much just stick to snowboarding. I love basketball, I've played it all my life, as well as golf. After I return from my mission in Nicaragua, I will attend Brigham Young University Idaho. I am an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

True happiness can only be found through the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. When I am in dark places, and going through dark times, it is from the Gospel that I have not only gotten through those hard times, but easily concurred all the temptations to make bad decisions without fail. I personally know my Lord and Savior loves, and knows each one of us. I feel his love in my life everyday. I know he lives. I know he gives true revelations to our leaders to guide us in these latter days. And I know that anyone who is willing to let him into their lives, will have the opportunity to gain the same surety that I have.

How I live my faith

I spend lots of time serving others. For my Eagle Scout project I led a group of 25 people help me to fix a room at a local homeless shelter. This seemingly simple act by our small group had impacted more people than I know. And it will continue to do so!

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Although all willing and able young men should serve a full time missin, it is not required. Show more Show less
