Hi I'm Cassaundra Nora Howlett

I've traveled, I've taught, I've learned, and I've learned to love. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

One of my favorite things to mention when I explain myself is the beautiful places I've been! I was born in Suita Osaka, Japan but I mostly grew up between Seattle, Washington and Fort Worth, Texas. I've traveled to Russia, teaching English to some of the sweetest little kindergarteners. Visited all through Russia and up into Helsinki, Finland where I got to attend the temple. As of right now, I've recently moved from Washington D.C. to Seoul, South Korea with my family for my dad's job in the US State Department. And, my absolute favorite part, I have my mission call to the Sweden, Stockholm mission where I am now serving the Lord and the wonderful people of Sweden! After my mission I have many big plans in place to return to Seattle, Washington to go to school for Surgical Technology. I have a great love of music, art/drawing, the human body, reading, service, and travel!

Why I am a Mormon

I choose each and every day to be a Mormon because I've never been anywhere else in this world that has given me the enlightenment and joy that the gospel of Jesus Christ has given me. I've been to cathedrals and shrines all over this world and nothing has ever given me the peace that I feel in the temple; in our Lord's house. The Lord is my light. The Lord is my love and I know he loves me. My testimony of the Lord's love for me couldn't have been cultivated anywhere else. I struggled for years not understanding how a Savior could care for me out of the many, many people in this world. Through my gospel study and much prayer, I realized, the Lord took His time to create me, that must mean that I'm worth something...if I'm worth His time creating, I must be worth His time saving. He loves me so much that even if I were the only one, He still would have died for me. There is no other place where I have ever felt so much love, than in the Savior's love. His love is everywhere. But I choose everyday to live in a way that brings me the closest to that love; and I feel it most by living His gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in many different ways each day. I live it however the Lord needs me to! One day, I may be needed serving others, another I might be teaching, or maybe my example is all that is needed. Although, nowadays I live my faith every moment of every day as a missionary for the church! I get the opportunity to teach and share the gospel every day. I am always ready for the Lord to use me, my testimony, and love for Him in whatever way it is needed. God calls us to be on fire for Him. Shine bright every day, show off that beautiful testimony, and no one will doubt His light in your countenance.
