Hi I'm Andrea Mannucci

I was born and bread in Italy, La Spezia. I practise kung fu, wing chun for several years. I like italian food. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm italian, I love the sea, the sun heat, the beach and to ten (I love summer time). I really enjoy sleeping but at the same time I like play several different sports like: beach volley ball, basket ball, mountain biking, boxing, skiing, sea watching and practice martial art(kung fu, wing chun). I love laughing with family and friends and spend time with them, especially while eating a good italian pizza XD. My family is a very simple one, i'm the oldest of two children. I really enjoy studying science especially anatomy, but I have lots of interest even in astronomy and science of the earth. Studying these subjects make me have lots of questions which lead me to know and discover more about the purpouse of my Heavenly Father. Chinese philosophy attracts me a lot in the way that is really deep and really mysterious at the same time.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church, but on my teenage years I realized that I was going to church just for make my family happy. Thanks to my friends I realized that I needed to know if I really wanted to follow this belief or choose another path, so I decided to begin to study the Book of Mormon, go to church and try to be more active during the lessons on Sunday service. One day while I was reading the Book of Mormon, I felt like a peaceful feeling in my heart, hard to describe. My mind was open, I was able to understand the scriptures much better, and I was also able to apply them to me!.....During all day long I was thinking of the experience that I had. So, when I retired for bed, I decided to ask God if what I felt was from Him. As far as I finish to say these words I felt again the same feeling that I felt that same day, except the fact that I had goosebumbs through all my back. My heart this time was filled with joy, tears begin to come out and the shivers begin to increase. I realized that what I asked to God was answered. Since that time I decided to embrace this belief, knowing that I would never repent of the big choice that I made. The Book of Mormon is true word of God as well as the Bible, the only difference is that the Book of Mormon can touch your soul as no any other books on the earth. Being a Mormon is really special, wherever I go in the world I know that I have friends and people ready to help me in my difficulties. I know that I can also rely on a Heavenly Father(God) who loves me and is happy when I make good choices. Also we have lots of fun during the activities of the church and you can have fun with people of every age. I love being a Mormon

The way I live my faith is concentrated on the basic teachings of Jesus Christ, develop christlike attributes, and try to develop my talents aswell, for the benefit of myself, family and others. I study the scriptures every day, I try to help family and friends to come closer to Christ and try to be always a good exemple of disciple of Christ.
