Hi I'm Casey

I'm a student, a future Landscape Architect, a professional shower-singer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in California! Unlike the rest of the people in the nice sun of California, I cannot tan. I served as a missionary in Oregon. That was by far one of the most difficult yet most rewarding experiences of my life! I love art, design, and fashion. My hobbies consist of sleeping, eating, designing, and meeting new people. That my new friends, is the best way to describe myself.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church because of the powerful example and testimony of my mother. My father is not a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints but he too has been a key reason why I am a mormon. I started to attend church when I was four when my mom secretly took me to church without my father knowing. I'm eternally in debt to my mother for taking me to church. Because of that decision I have come to know, understand, love, and be loved by our Heavenly Father and His beloved son, Jesus Christ. No matter how hard someone tries to force something into your life; you are the one that has to make the ultimate decision whether or not that "something" is true to you. My whole life I have grown up with conflicting views whether or not that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true or not. I testify to you that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. I know that with all my heart. The power of the Book of Mormon is one of Christ. I am mormon because I have read and understand the Book of Mormon. I am mormon because I have prayed and have received an answer that this is the true church of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I am mormon because I had people like my mother to lead, guide, teach, and be an example of the gospel. I know that if you too read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if the teachings and stories within it are true; you too can have the same assurance I do that what I have told you is true.

How I live my faith

I strive to live a Christ-like life. It's my desire to be an example of good and friendship. I live my faith by loving all that I meet. I know the pains and scars that come from disappointment from others in your life. I strive daily to be that shoulder to cry on, that ear to listen, and have the heart to show love and compassion. I live my faith by being, simply me. Because God loves us all for who we are.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

We increase our faith in Jesus Christ by following His example. In St. John 8:12 it reads, "Then spake Jesus saying, I am the light of the world, he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness but shall have everlasting life." To increase our faith we are to follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ with obedience. And if we strive to do follow Him with sincerity of heart we will see the out come. Put the gospel of Jesus Christ to the test by following it and by doing so, you will see your faith increase. Show more Show less
