Hi I'm Preston

I am from Utah and am currently in England serving a mission, I love running, rock climbing and outdoors and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love adventures! I love running, rock climbing, hiking, caving and so on. I ran for my high schools cross country team and took my education very seriously. Through a great program called SUCCESS Academy I was able to graduate high school with my associates degree and I took part in the student government for that program. I enjoy doing spontaneous things with my friends and being around other people in general. Life is great and the gospel makes it even better!

Why I am a Mormon

The Mormon faith is one that encourages questions and finding out for yourself by going to the most reliable source. While on a mission we encourage people to hear what we have to say then ask them to pray and ask God if that is true and this is something I love because that is what I have done. I have studied scripture and read the Book of Mormon and have prayed and asked God if it is really from Him and if He really is there. Now I am giving up 2 years of my life because I have found out for myself that it is true. God is there and He loves each and every one of us and we can all find out for ourselves by asking Him!

How I live my faith

I live and love the principals that the church teaches. Some people see the commandments as restrictions and I hear all the time from people "I couldn't be a Mormon, your church is too strict." but that isn't the case at all! The commandments are like guardrails near a cliff that God has given us to stay safe, if we violate these then we are only putting ourselves at risk. We can avoid harmful addictions and keep ourselves free of guilt! I have been given a few responsibilities in the church which I enjoy fulfilling and currently I am serving as a full time missionary in the England Leeds mission.
