Hi I'm Kassi Anderson

I grew up in Oklahoma. I am a big band mom to my 3 teenagers. I teach piano from my home. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My parents joined the church when I was 4 1/2. I like to sing, sew, do yard work, and run. Finally I graduated this last year with my Associates because my children came before schooling. They needed me and studies could wait. Life is very busy with teenagers but I love going and sharing their experiences. I work part-time for a counseling office while the kids are at school and teach piano from my home after school. I have lived in 8 states. Life has taught me that things could always be worse and to not go to bed without thinking of at least one good thing because when we look for the good, the bad is more manageable.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know I am a Daughter of a loving God who knows me better than any one else. My life would not be as good as it is without the church. Even though I was young when my parents were baptized, there was a different feeling in our home after they joined. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the one true way to return to our Father in Heaven. He gave me all I have and has been there at my darkest moments. I could feel his arms around me and knew it would all be okay. When I have made mistakes, the knowledge that Jesus Christ had already paid for those mistakes reassures me just how well he knows us individually and loves us endlessly. Trials will come our way, the gospel reminds us that we are not alone in trials and that there is always someone there who knows how you feel. I'm a Mormon because I want to be with my family for eternity, not just til death. Heavenly Father put the perfect man in my path when I was least looking. Why would I ever want to only be married for this life? I need him by my side. Man (woman) is not meant to be alone and that means for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by volunteering and being there for other youth when their own parents are not available. When on school functions with my children, I do not allow bad language or talking disrespectfully about members of the opposite gender. Also encourage them to dress modestly and respect themselves. I listen to them and hear about heartaches and troubles. Give advice when asked but that is in keeping with our standards. As a woman, it is our divine role to help all of Heavenly Father's children. I am the chorister for church. I play the piano when needed. I visit other women to see how they are doing and see if their is anything I could do to help them, be more than just a person but a true friend. Missionaries are away from home for 18 months - 2 years depending on whether they are boys or girls. Clothes need altered as growing out (or in) and holes appear. Many a pair of pants has come thru my door as these missionaries do not have the time to worry about such things when I can be of service to them. I live my faith by how I talk and dress. Our bodies are a gift from our Heavenly Father so I do my best to reverence him in staying modest in my language and clothing. I also help young women be modest when going to formal activities by altering formal dresses. We are to develop our talents and so I share what I can.
