Hi I'm Joe Cassler

I was born and raised in Utah with 5 younger siblings. I am a musician and a Parkour athlete. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Utah all my life. As I was growing up, I homeschooled for three years before entering a charter high school. I developed a great interest in music, especially rock. I have been playing the guitar, bass, and drums for seven years now, studying many varieties of music like blues, jazz, and rock. I also love being physically active; I have played hockey ever since I was five years old and I am currently a parkour/freerunner athlete. I am also academically active and have been in the High Honor Roll throughout High School. I am 19 years old, I have finished a semester of college, and am currently preparing to serve a full-time mission to Arkansas.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church, my parents were converts. All my life they have taught me the gospel, and I never really had any doubt. In the latter half of my life, there have been challenges testing me and my family's faith; and as I have been growing up the question came up to my face: do I believe in this Church? Is there a God? But through prayer, the scriptures, and the power of the Holy Ghost, I know that Christ lived and died for us. I know that he suffered the atonement, and through it we can return to him. I have felt his love. That is why I'm a Christian. And I know the Book of Mormon is true, and that Joseph Smith did restore Christ's Church back on the Earth along with the Priesthood. I have felt the Spirit when I hear the Prophets words. And I know that through my faith and endurance, giving my whole heart to Christ, serving others, and raising a family, that I will return to him someday. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

One of the greatest foundations of the Gospel is in the family, which is how I live my faith. My greatest calling so far is to be an older brother of five children, giving me the power of example. I always strive to live worthily as to be a good example for my siblings, testifying that happiness comes from living the Gospel.
