Hi I'm Manuela

I´m Mormon and got to know the church in 2010/11 when staying in Salt Lake City as an exchange student.

About Me

I´m German but visited America for a High School Year. There I got to know the church and became a member. Right now, I’m studying English and History to become a teacher. I like to listen to rock, pop and country music. I play the guitar and like to sing. Also I´m a diver and am very interested in travelling. In addition, I have the cutest pug in the world that I love deeply.

Why I am a Mormon

I´m Mormon because I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true restored church. I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he translated the Book of Mormon given from God. I know the organization of the church to be true and that we still have prophets and apostles today. I especially know that we can be together with our families forever and that Temples are the House of the Lord in which we can partake in sacred ordinances.

How I live my faith

I try to embed the teachings of the church as good as possible in my daily life. I´m always open with people if asking me about the gospel or my beliefs. I also stand up for what I think is true in surroundings, like University, where people are not always of the same opinion. I try to never judge or to be unkind and hope to be a good example to other people. I try to help as best as I can and hope to be a good friend to the people I know. In church, I’m serving as second counselor in primary and conduct sacrament meeting. I like being with the kids and teaching them about the gospel and Jesus Christ.
