Hi I'm Cassie

I'm a country girl raised in a city, I love animals and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey there! My name is Cassie I am a 23 year old college student studying Animal Science. I love animals particularly horses. I didn't grow up on a ranch or anything but have always dreamed of living on one. Someday perhaps that will become a reality. I love being outside and playing just about any kind of sport. I'm not good by any means but I enjoy running around pretending like I know what's going on. I ride my bike just about everywhere. It's great exercise and it gets me out seeing new things. As of now I am serving a full time mission In England. Very different from my hometown but I love it here! Driving on narrow back country roads can be a little scary...

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a mormon and couldn't imagine my life differently. I have grown up in the church but it is amazing to me how much I still learn every time I read the scriptures and go to church. I know that Heavenly Father knows and loves me for who I am and for who I am continually striving to be. I can see His love for me in my everyday life. I have been blessed with such a wonderful family who is there to support me through thick and thin. I have seen how this gospel has brought so much joy and happiness not only into me and my families life but friends lives as well. I know that there is true peace in living the gospel teachings and following Jesus Christ's example.

How I live my faith

Right now I am living my faith by serving a mission! Everyday I get the privilege of talking to people of all ages and backgrounds about what I believe. It is amazing how talking to someone about what I believe has helped strengthen my belief. As a missionary we find opportunites to serve as well as teach. We always offer to help people because establishing a strong relationship with people through service really can open up many teaching opportunites. My purpose as a missionary is to invite others to come unto Christ. I do that by living the way He did when he was here on this earth. His whole life was devoted to serving and teaching the people. Being a good example is a great way to help people to know their Savior better.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a second witness that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that he really lives. Just as the Bible is the record of ancient prophets in Jerusalem, the Book of Mormon is a record of ancient prophets on the American continent. The Book of Mormon is a collection of teachings and writings from these different prophets. From reading the Book of Mormon we can understand God's plan for us, as His children and it outlines what we must do in order to gain peace and happiness in this life. Christ taught the people that, "other sheep I have which are not of this fold, them also must I bring". The greatest part in the Book of Mormon is when Christ comes to his "other sheep" after he has been resurrected. Jesus Christ taught the people His gospel, and these teachings can be found not only in the Bible but also in the Book of Mormon. 2 Cor 13:1 states that out of "the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established." The Book of Mormon is that second witness. Jesus Christ lives. The Book of Mormon together with the Bible help us to see the full picture. At the end of the Book of Mormon there is a special promise that if we read and ponder about the things that we have read and then ask God the Eternal Father if the book is true, then we can know for ourselves if it is true by the power of the Holy Ghost. That's what I did. I know its true. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

To come closer to God and to be able to live with Him again someday we should have faith in Jesus Christ because through Jesus Christ we can be saved as the Apostle Peter taught that "there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12) Only through Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for us can we be cleansed from sin and worthy to live with God. Having faith in God means that we trust His wisdom and act in a way that is pleasing to God. Having faith in God and Jesus Christ leads us to act in accordance with His will and teachings.
