Hi I'm Presley McConnell

I play softball and collegiate rugby and I love listening to great music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've played softball since I was 5 years old. I play first base, shortstop, and pitcher. I attend a small college in Southern Utah. I enjoy the compact nature of the school. I am majoring in Family Life and Human Development which I find of great interest. I love living here in Utah because of the varied landscapes of evergreen mountains and red rock desert.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel with all my heart. It is the source of true joy. Our father in heaven knows each of us personally. He sent His son to die for us and atone for our sins. Jesus Christ felt each of our pains, sorrows, successes, afflictions, and joys. Whenever we feel alone, Christ is always there with an outstretched hand. All we have to do is reach out and grab it. He knows what we are going through because he suffered for us and felt all that we do. Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God. He restored this gospel back on earth for all of us. Because of his love and sacrifice, we can be with our families forever. We were given temples where we can go to feel closer to God. Inside the temple, we are sealed to our spouses and families for all time and eternity. In the temple, we also make covenants to God that will protect and guide us. The temple is a source of peace and comfort, a shield from the world around us. I am so excited to go serve in Kentucky and share this wonderful gospel with so many good people. This gospel has and continues to bless my life every day. I cannot wait to share this joy with others.

How I live my faith

Right now I serve the women of my ward by helping those in need and being there for each of them. I am also currently preparing to serve a mission in Kentucky.
