Hi I'm Casandra

I'm a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints.

About Me

I'm at UVU attending college, striving to be a secondary math teacher. I love to learn; I love to grow. I served as a missionary in Chiapas, Mexico, which was probably the best decision I ever made. I love this gospel, and I love becoming a better person.

Why I am a Mormon

I have personally gained a testimony of the truth of the Book of Mormon, and therefore the restoration. I especially have a testimony of how much God loves us and cares for each and every one of us. I know that we are nothing without the Atonement of our Savior, and He is my hero! I know that our prayers are a two-way communication, and that tithing is actually a really really big blessing. I know that we have a Prophet today who is inspired, and leads us in the right direction. I have also figured out that Charity never Faileth. Love it.

How I live my faith

Everyday it's a battle. And I feel like if you aren't seeking light, it's inevitable to fall into darkness. (Like a teeth-whitening commercial once said "if you're not whitening, you're yellowing"). Constant effort to become Christlike is required (scriptures and prayers sure do help).

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

It is asked of the men to serve a mission, but it is ultimately their choice. It is given as an option for the women, and that's me! I chose to serve a mission. Show more Show less
