Hi I'm Cassidy Wood

A California girl serving in the Texas McAllen Mission. A singer, artist, outdoor enthusiast- but most importantly, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a very wide range of interests- from music, to painting & drawing, athletics, and exploring the outdoors- I love a little bit of everything! I am a college student- however, I am putting that on hold to serve a mission for 18 months in McAllen, Texas. I live for creating, learning, and adventuring. My dream is to inspire others and help them become the best they can be- as I strive to live to my highest potential as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, and "why" is so simple- the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings complete happiness. It is the key to true and pure joy- allowing us to progress and become the absolute BEST we can be. Because I am Mormon; I know who I am, I know why I am here, and I KNOW where I am going. I have a knowledge and love for God and his Son- and the beautiful thing is, is that love is reciprocated beyond measure. I know that there is opposition in all things- but being Mormon has given me the tools to reach for the light when I am surrounded by gloom, it's helped me overcome my hardest trials, my deepest insecurities, and healed my heart in ways nothing man made or store bought can. One of my favorite quotes is, "The Gospel is not weight, it is wings!"

How I live my faith

I feel that I let my faith live in me, I am what I believe. The things I do, the choices I make, the route I am taking in my life is because of my faith. How I let my faith be apart of who I am- is by serving others. I have held callings such as a teacher and a Stake YSA Representative. Right now, I am preparing for the biggest calling of my life- and that is being a missionary. By going on a mission, I will be a servant of Heavenly Father- going to a place I have never gone before, doing something completely out of my comfort zone, with people I've never met. It is scary and it will be hard, I am SO excited to go in place of my Savior, Jesus Christ and share his message for his cause. How I live my faith is by doing anything I can for the Cause of Christ.
