Hi I'm Cassie

I'm a mother of two. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I have two children, ages 3 and 1. We have loved being parents. I stay at home with them and love being a full-time homemaker. I love to quilt and sew, which is what you will usually find me doing if my kids are taking a nap! I love music, especially bluegrass, and I play the piano and am learning to play the mandolin. I enjoy hiking, camping and just being in the mountains near our home, enjoying the beautiful earth our Heavenly Father created for us.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to active members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons), but that is not why I am a Mormon now. I gained my own conviction of the truth of this work little by little through an earnest desire to know the truth for myself, praying, and studying the scriptures and the words of our living prophets. My knowledge of this work has grown, and I can now say that I know that this church is true. It has been a profound blessing in my life, especially through hard times when I know I can rely on Jesus Christ even at those times when I can rely on nobody else. I am grateful also for the knowledge that famlies can be forever. When family members who were dear to me passed away, although it was a sad time, I knew that I would see them again. That knowledge is so dear to me, especially now that I am a mother. I know that my daughter and any other children we are blessed with will be ours forever.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite responsibilites has been teaching the youth in our congregation about the gospel. I have also played the organ for meetings and am currently teaching the nursery children, from the 18 month to the 2 year age range. Another blessing has been the assignment to visit some sisters from the congregation. Although I am young and feel I have little to teach most of these sisters, I have been blessed by their friendship and their experiences.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

A family is the basic unit of society, and God has intended for it to continue beyond the grave. I know this is true, and I am so grateful for that knowledge. I have had grandparents die, and while this is a sad event, the hurt is lessened because I know I will see them again. It gives great peace of mind to know that if something were to happen to my husband or myself, we would be together in the next life. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) believe in the Savior Jesus Christ, that he was our Savior and Redeemer, that He was the Son of God, that He came to earth to live among men and was crucified and then resurrected in order that we might have the opportunity to be redeemed from sin and death. The New Testament teaches us about the life of our Savior and the dealings of His apostles. We also believe that God speaks to the people of the earth through his prophets. Both the New and the Old Testaments contain vital information that has been given by our Heavenly Father through these prophets that have lived since the time of Adam. These teachings can bless us greatly if we will apply them to our lives. Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Faith is something that does not come all at once, but it grows as we are obedient to Heavenly Father's teachings. When Jesus was on the earth, He promised that if we would do His will, we would know of the truth of the doctrine for ourselves (see John 7:17). Little by little as we obey the commandments our Heavenly Father has given us, we will be blessed with stronger and stronger faith in the promises of our Savior that will bless us throughout our lives if we will continue to nurture it.
