Hi I'm Cassidy

I'm a missionary in the Costa Rica San Jose Mission and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am currently serving a Mission in Costa Rica! I completed one year of college at BYU-Idaho. I lived in Utah my entire life so moving just a few hours away from my wonderful family was rough, but I LOVED school and now I am LOVING serving my Heavenly Father! I am majoring in Music Education with a Choral emphasis.... and also considering Elementary Education. Who knows. :) I plan to teach choir to high school aged students. In high school I participated in musicals and plays and loved every minute of it. I love singing, reading, studying art and spending time with my friends and family!

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up, my parents were very faithful to the gospel of Jesus Christ. I never doubted what I was taught because when I lived by the teachings of the gospel I felt peace and happiness. In my high school years, I started to make choices that led me away from my Heavenly Father. I still never truly doubted the church, but I had lots of questions. When I realized how unhappy I was with my life, I decided it was time to make a choice. I could either keep living the way I was and see if I ended up happy, or I could rely on the testimony of the church I'd always had and have the peace in my life once again. And so, I began to deeply study the Book of Mormon. I prayed harder than I ever had. I stopped making choices contrary to the commandments. And finally, my life was right! I prayed to my Heavenly Father that I might know for myself of the truthfulness of the gospel. I received a peaceful confirmation that I always knew. Since then, I've never turned back. I work hard every day to keep myself close to the spirit and to my Father in Heaven. I try to serve others and become more like my Savior, Jesus Christ. I repent of my sins and seek forgiveness. And I am so happy. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true because of how it makes me feel and the person it helps me become and I am so grateful for it in my life!

How I live my faith

I love the gospel. I try to live my faith by being obedient to the commandments and to the counsel of the prophet. I pray to my Heavenly Father daily to help me know how to live better and to live the way He wants me to. I am serving a mission right now in Costa Rica San Jose and am spending all day helping others feel the love of our Father in Heaven and to come unto Christ! It is the best work in the world. I am grateful to have the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life and find the opportunity of serving to never be a burden, but a wonderful blessing!
