Hi I'm Cassandra

I am an Artist, a Wife, a Mother and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Cassandra. My husband Dan and I are raising three daughters, a garden, and a little bit of generative havoc in our home. I make art for my occupation, but also for fun. I also love to spontaneously dance and sew, and I can't find nearly enough hours in the day to do everything I'd like to do.

Why I am a Mormon

Mormonism provides me with a unique outlook on living and engaging with others. It gives me a lens through which I can look at my life, the challenges as well as the triumphs, and learn holistically from all of it. I also know that I am not alone, that God loves me and hears my prayers; He wants me to be happy. I am a much happier person living my faith as a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I feel extremely lucky to be an artist because not only do I get to spend my days doing what I love to do, and working alongside my family, sometimes I also have an opportunity to inspire others. Ultimately, that is a goal I keep working toward as I paint. I want to share what I've learned, what I experience, with others. I have been serving as the Compassionate Service Leader in my church community. It's been my responsibility to make sure that if anyone is in need, such as if someone is ill and needs meals brought in or help of any kind, I that their needs are met. Many church members have helped in innumerable ways. I get a lump in my throat thinking about how wonderful it is that so many people are quietly willing to give and serve. It is a sweet, warm feeling to know that there are so many people who are truly trying to be good and to know that I too would be taken care of if I were ever in need.

Who are the Mormons?

More than once, as I’ve traveled doing art shows across the United States, people will say to me, “you don’t look like a Mormon.” I’m still not sure what Mormons are supposed to look like. Thoughts run through my mind like: Is it because I’m short? Are my turquoise leather boots too much? Should I try to be more serious? The Mormons I know come in all shapes and sizes. What we have in common isn’t something in the way we dress or even in the way we were raised but in what we believe. We are individuals with a common goal; to live a Christ-centered life.
