Hi I'm Cassie Wilson

I love to draw and paint. I'm an avid reader. I like to play board games. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a student studying Elementary Education. I love kids and can't wait to have some of my own one day. I have lived in Utah my whole life and I love the mountains! I also like to hike and be outdoors! I love to read and learn about new things. I love music and dancing. I enjoy doing just about everything with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I need Jesus Christ in my life. Being a member of this church brings me closer to my Savor and helps me become more like him. I like attending a church where nobody is perfect but everyone is trying to be better. The great thing about this church is that we have a living prophets to guide us and help us. They are able to warn us of things to come and help us maintain strong and happy families. Life is hard and things never go as planned but I know with my Savior Jesus Christ I can do all things.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to find ways to serve others in all aspects of my life. Sometimes the most meaningful service is the little things done on a regular basis. I like to volunteer in the community and help others out. I am preparing to serve a mission and share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the world. I love the Lord and try to be like him and treat others as he would treat them.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Cassie Wilson
We were sent to Earth to gain a body. Mortal bodies allow us to feel pain and sickness. We need to feel pain so that we can learn things like compassion and empathy. Jesus suffered not only for our sins but also for all the physical and emotional pain we would ever feel. Because He knows all of our pain we need never feel alone. God has a physical body and we want to be like him. Because Jesus Christ died for us every person born on this earth will be resurrected and their bodies will become immortal like Gods. God sent us down to earth to test us. He wanted to see if we would follow Him even if we couldn't see him. That is why faith is such an important principle. There is a reason why we aren't sent to this earth knowing everything. We need to be able to exercise our agency and choose our own path. Before we came to this earth we all chose to follow Jesus Christ and the test of this life is to see if we will do so again. There are some things you can only learn through experiencing them for yourself. Some things that we need to help us become like God are things we could only learn away from his presence. God Sent us to Earth so we could form families. God is our spiritual father and we are all spirit brothers and sisters. This is why Mormons call each other Brother and Sister. We are all descendants of Adam and are part of his eternal family. And we each have our own family that we can one day live with forever. Show more Show less
