Hi I'm Preston

Lived all over the U.S. as a military child. Love swimming, my family, and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the second of four children; my older brother is serving a mission and my two younger sisters are awesome and love having fun. Swimming has to be my number one thing I like to do, although extremely hard and difficult to do my favorite stroke is butterfly. My coach made me practice it over and over until I mastered it. I think perhaps second would be spending time with my family and friends, I always loved being outside with them and playing capture the flag or ultimate frisbee.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church with my family and always have had a love for the Gospel. I was always taught that the Church was true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet, but I had to find out for myself. I prayed and read the scriptures trying to find out if what I had been taught my entire life was true. I was answered that I already knew it was true and there was no need to doubt. That everything my parents and leaders had taught me was the truth. And since then I've believed that answer and haven't doubted, sure there been things I haven't understood but I go back to that answer every time I'm in doubt. I've had my share of trails in this life but through the Gospel and Atonement of Jesus Christ, which I have come to believe in strongly, I know I can make it through. I firmly believe in the Atonement of our Savior and that is Gospel is restored upon this earth.

How I live my faith

I know myself, I know who I am and what I stand for. I guess it's really that simple. I've been held to a high standard of living having grown up in the church it was my way of life until i decided it was the why I should be living my life regardless if people were around to make sure I did follow those standards. I am always willing to serve in any way I can through any skills I may have. I'm serving a mission where I am teaching other about the happiness I have found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
