Hi I'm Cassidy Sanchez

Currently serving a mission in the Houston Texas South Mission, spanish speaking. I love soccer and my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 21 years old and am currently serving a full time mission in Houston, Texas. It has been the biggest blessing of my life to be out here serving my Heavenly Father and His children. I love to play soccer, it is a big passion of mine. I went to college for 2 years before the mission at BYU-Idaho and am planning on continuing after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because there is no other religion that places a secure peace in my soul. I am Mormon because I believe in following Jesus Christ and trying my very best to be like Him. I am Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is true with all my heart and I know that Joseph Smith played an important role in the restoration of the church. I am Mormon because I believe in loving others and seeing them how our Heavenly Father sees them. I am Mormon because I have a strong belief in God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost. I know this church is true. It has blessed my life in many ways and I recognize the guidance of the Holy Ghost on a daily basis. I would not be who I am today without the gospel. I have asked in faith and I have received an answer knowing it is true.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday and have served in various callings. I also know that not all choose to serve missions, but regardless, we are all missionaries. We need to share our faith with those all around us.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Cassidy Sanchez
I have learned in my life that in order to come to know our Heavenly Father, we have to be worthy. Worthiness means that we are clean. As I have been worthy, I have had the opportunity to know my Father in Heaven through prayer. Prayer is a blessing because it allows for direct communication to our Father. As He listens to us, He will allow us to feel His love and He will bless us for diligently seeking Him. Obedience is another way we can come to know our Heavenly Father. As we strive to follow His commandments, we will feel peace knowing that we are doing His will and He will fill our hearts with His spirit. Show more Show less
