Hi I'm Casi Jarman

I'm an Fitness Coach, Hiker, Runner, Math Teacher, Wife and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

There are few things I am more passionate about than exercise and fitness. My husband whom I have been married to for just over one year has transformed me into an outdoorsy girl. I love to backpack, hike, run, and strength train. I am a fitness instructor for a workout problem called Cross Tone. I enjoy being able to teach women how to transform themselves into beautiful, confident people and learn how to self-motivate to achieve their goals. I am also extremely interested in becoming a teacher, specifically a math teacher for high school students. I think teaching is one way to give back and I plan on doing all that I can to allow my students the opportunities they need to be successful in their lives. I am currently in my 3rd year of school and planning to attend BYUI to finish my degree. We have no kids yet, but they will come soon enough. I feel so strongly about getting an education that I've made the decision to finish college first before having kids. I have a wonderful life and have been so blessed by an adoring husband and a mind that has allowed me to pursue and be successful in my educational endeavors.

Why I am a Mormon

It's pretty simply why I am a Mormon. I haven't come up with a good reason not to be. Being born in the church it's really all I have known, although that is not why I stay. At 16 the age of defiance of most youth, I decided to test the things I had grown up learning. First of all at 16 going to church was the last thing on my list of wants, but since my parents did not allow me to stay home, I kept going. I figured if I was all ready there I might as well figure out what the purpose of going to 3 hours of church was all about. I began to develop faith slowly. I had never been one to commit sins or disobey, merely out of fear of punishment. I wanted to really understand the LDS religion and my relationship with God and make my decisions based on more than fear. After three years of many prayers, fasting, trials, upsets, doubts, and errors, I figured it out. I remember it quite clearly. I wanted to tell everyone what I had finally figured out. I took a long good look at my life and realized that I needed to stop doing things for the wrong reasons. I needed to start living a righteous life because I loved God, not because I feared him. And I did I had learned through prayer, scripture study, faith and diligence that I truly did love God. I made a commitment to follow him and I have found that the LDS church aligns exactly with my personal standards and morals. I have received confirmation through the Holy Ghost that Joseph Smith was a prophet. I'm a Mormon because I can't give myself a good reason not to be.

How I live my faith

RIght now I teach Primary in my ward. Primary is the last two hour block of church where the children go to be taught. I teach the six year olds, nine of these little ones. I was worried when they called me to teach six year olds. I don't exactly relate well to children; however, I have learned to love these little children and even more shocking they have taught me about the love of the Savior. Simple minded children always say what they think and these kids share such remarkable testimonies about love, family and Jesus Christ that I can't help but feel the spirit of Christ when I am with them. I also live my faith by participating in Family Home Evening with my husband. One night a week we take time to each prepare a lesson about a topic that interests us, related to the Gospel and then discuss it with one another. Our relationship has grown immensely because of the bonds we've created and the open conversations that exist about religion because of Family Home Evening. My husband Cameron and I also try to attend the temple often so that we can feel of Christ spirit and do service for others. I try my best to live a righteous life, one that I try to make God proud of.
