Hi I'm Marcos Sanchez

I live in Las Vegas, I love Trains, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am no where near extraordinary, but I say otherwise! I'm from the beautiful desert of Las Vegas, I love this place, is been my home forever now. When I was about three years old I fell in love with trains! Thomas and Friends to be exact, since then I have collected a lot of Thomas and his friends. I love music, happy music that makes you wanna move, it's the one thing I have to express myself to others, and one way I can make myself feel better in no time!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the simple teaching of everlasting happiness and that I can live with my family for all eternity. People say I'm kinda hard to get along with that I'm very defensive, stubborn, short tempered and very sassy (I weird cuz I sassy) but while growing up I remember that I was never liked because I was Mormon I was over protected in this world that no one else couldn't see, before I knew it I became a target for bullying, every single day until i became a senior in high school it was harder to find a way to stay happy, and as time went on I grew, and so did the people that bullied me they just didn't see my pain with what the thought was harmless fun and I remember one night I came home and I just broke down crying because I realized that I was depressed, I look at myself and saw just an empty body that was nothing and I too began to bully myself, I didn't see any value in me or my life. My mom was the only one who took the blows with me she suck with me when I was in my weakest days, and I'll never forget the scripture she gave me. "Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God." From that moment on I seen myself as what a beloved primary song says I am, I AM a Child of God, I didn't matter that I was different from everyone else, that I was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, that I love Thomas and friends, it didn't matter because that what makes me special. I'm grateful for that principle, that I'm a child of God that through the Attonement of Jesus Christ all of my sins and struggles will be made clean, yes their are lasting efects from satian attacks but if I stay true to what my Heavenly Father wants me to be I will be with my family for all eternity and be eternally happy.

How I live my faith

I currently am serving in the California San Jose Mission and I love ever single minute of it. At home I used to be the oldest youth in my Branch and just setting the example to the other youth to serve a Mission is the best way I can say I've been showing my faith, giving up 2 years of my life and devote it to our Savior is something that not a lot of people are willing to do especially when you 18 years old but I know I'll grow and learn and love my Heavenly Father more.
