Hi I'm Ashley Manwill

I love Fruit.I love the outdoors,being with family,and trying new things.PENNSYLVANIA,Pittsburgh missionary. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Ashley.I was raised in Annabella Utah in a family of 7. I have 2 sisters and 2 brothers, that I love so much.I love the outdoors and trying new things, such as slacklining, wakeboarding, boating, snowboarding, running, and climbing. As long as it is outside. I love dancing, singing, playing the piano, soccer, basketball, softball, and being in the water (Lake). I am a college student at SUU, on my mission in Pennsylvania and I love being with my friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am apart of this Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know he is always there helping me along the way.I did grow up in the church, which was a privilege to do. I still had to decide if it was true when I became a teen. I new when I had done one thing wrong, I could be forgiven and he helped me in small and simple ways. I also came to know and love the Plan of Salvation when, I had a loved one almost pass on, but the priesthood blessings helped her. I know it to be true because when I pray, go to sacrament, or when I need help he is always willing to help me. I can always count on one person to help me in all I do. Through this gospel I know I can have an eternal family, only by going through the temple. I know this church is true. I know Joseph Smith restored this church back on earth today. It is through the Book of Mormon, I am able to teach and learn to be like Christ. He also had faith to find the scriptures and through the savior and the tools he could translate them. I know the prophets today have modern day revelations to help each one of us to grow closer to Christ. I also know it is only following the perfect example, the Savior, I can become perfect and live with him again. I know this church is true and I love my family and friends.

How I live my faith

I like to serve the Lord and Jesus Christ. I love being involved in this church, teaching others about the true and everlasting gospel, and serving others. I am serving a mission in Pennsylvania the best place ever! Also by being my best example of a latter day saint, it is through love by obeying his commandments and doing all he asks!Turning my will to his and forgetting myself in the work, then I will find myself through the Savior.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Ashley Manwill
Search in the scriptures, ponder his words, and pray to know if it is true. Pray with a sincere heart find if it is true. Teach others and bear testimony of the church. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Ashley Manwill
Not all members, but is the duty of young men to serve on a two year mission, meanwhile for young women it is encouraged but we do not have too. Each one of us have our duties on earth and it is through serving the Savior we can do so. I know I do so I can show him my love and thankfulness. He does ask us to go teach all that we can and to serve him. "If you are in the service of your fellow beings you are only in the service of your God." Show more Show less
