Hi I'm Manti

I am from Utah. I love horseback riding, wrestling, skiing, and spending time with my family. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love spending time with my family; they mean everything to me! I am definitely an outdoors person; I love doing just about anything and everything that has to do with being outside. One of my favorite hobbies is going horseback riding in the mountains and seeing all of the amazing creations of our Heavenly Father. I am pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management and hope to own my own business one day. I enjoy playing and watching all kinds of sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I have come to know that this truly is Jesus Christ's true church on the earth today. Many people ask if I have been a "mormon" my whole life or if I was converted to this faith and lifestyle; to answer truthfully, both are accurate statements. My parents have always been strong and active members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I was blessed to be raised in the Church, however, as I got older I came to the realization that I needed to find out for myself whether or not this is the true Church and gospel of our Savior on the earth today; so I put it to the test. I studied the scriptures, prayed and tried to live according to the commandments as best as I could, and I got my answer. Through the Holy Spirit I have come to know that Jesus is the Christ, my Savior and brother; the Book of Mormon and the Bible are the word of God; and Joseph Smith truly was and is a Prophet that our Heavenly Father called to restore the fulness of the Gospel. We have a living Prophet and twelve Apostles on the earth today that are called to be special witnesses that Jesus is the Christ; He lives, and He is coming again!

How I live my faith

I am far from perfect, but I do my very best to be a worthy follower and representative of Jesus Christ. When I make mistakes I do all that I can to repent and fix anything that I have done and then I put my trust in our Savior's atonement. I have had the opportunity to serve with and work alongside many wonderful children of our Heavenly Father. I am currently serving as a missionary in North Carolina and love being able to stand as a witness and share my testimony of Jesus Christ and His gospel 24/7!
