Hi I'm Cassi

I from Boise, Idaho. I am a teacher, a coach, and Community Service worker. I'm a daughter and a sister. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an assistant coach for volleyball, and lacrosse which I play also. While I grew-up all my life playing or watching sports. I love to read, and sketch. I'd have to say my favorite thing is to go to a park and sketch the scenario. Its nice to sit in quiet and the look at the beautiful world around me. My job is to work with kids who have autism. This is one of the greatest thing I have ever done in my life. I get to spend time with very special children who help me see a different side to this world. They make you really think about the things in your life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but I believe everyone has a conversion story. For me it was when my sister was diagnosed with Autism. I was so scared, there were so many different things that we didn't know how we were going figure out. I went to girls camp feeling very upset and alone. When one of my very close friends came to me and told me that yes it was going to be difficult but Heavenly Father would stick by my side. If I asked for help, and assurance he would gladly do it. That night I read in my Book of Mormon and I just knew that God would stand by me. I knew that if I continued to follow his commandments that I could continue to feel that guidance. I now know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, and that through him the Book of Mormon was translated. I know that God does not lie and if he forgives us of our sins then I truly am forgiven. I know this church is true. The reason why I continue to follow the gospel is because you can never just stay at a stand still, you always need to be moving forward.

How I live my faith

In my Ward I have the opportunity to teach the children. I've taught the three different age groups, and they are so different to teach. I've learned that each age requires different way of teaching, but always with love. Teaching, or anything we do should be done with love, because we do love them. I have also had the opportunity to pick the music for Sunday morning.
