Hi I'm Cassandra

We adopted four children from Ethiopia last year and we have a total of nine children now. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mother. I have been blessed to be at home with the children. We adopted a sibling group of four children last year from Ethiopia. Two of our older children are from the foster/adopt program. I know God loves all of His children here on earth. I enjoy cooking. A few years ago I found out I am allergic to wheat, milk, and eggs. It has become one of my greatest trials and greatest blessings. I truly went through a kind of grieving process in giving up so many foods I love, however I am healthier now than I have ever been in my life. I have learned new and healthier ways of cooking and I am enjoying cooking again. I was not athletic growing up and now I run, bike, and swim. I have completed three half-marathons and three sprint triathlons.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. The gospel has been a great strength to me throughout my life. I've read the Book of Mormon and believe it is true scripture along with the Bible. I am so thankful for a prophet and apostles to give us guidance in our day. I am thankful for the congregation I belong to and how everyone serves and helps each other. I believe Christ organized the Church because I see an organization of goodness in the Church.

How I live my faith

In my community I volunteer for the Red Cross disaster services. At church I teach youth age 14-15 Sunday lessons and I help organize a week long camp for girls age 12-18 every summer. At home I love and serve my family.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Yes. I believe we have a prophet on earth today. Show more Show less
