Hi I'm Cassidy

I grew up in South America. I'm a student. I am a sister, a daughter, and a friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I'm Cassidy. I'm a college student, and I'm leaving for an LDS mission in Chile in just a couple of weeks. I have three younger brothers that I love very much. My favorite things to do are swimming anywhere and everywhere, exploring the mountains (off the trail, preferably), going to the grocery store with my mom (yes, I'm serious), and staying up late talking to good friends. I also love to drive and blast my music and sing at the top of my lungs. I love to laugh, I love to try new things, and I love to learn.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I have loving parents who taught me faith in Christ and how God would have me live my life. Though it may seem as if I was spoon-fed my beliefs, I wouldn't be doing all that I do if it wasn't for my own personal conviction in it. My beliefs have grown slowly and steadily over the course of my life, through reading the Book of Mormon (read it!), going to church, and seeing God's hand in my life when I pray to Him. Doing the little things every day of my life has helped me to grow a strong testimony in what I am doing and why I am doing it. It isn't for my parents or my friends or because I feel pressure from anyone. I am a Mormon because I believe in this gospel. I believe in Christ and that families can be together forever. I know that living the gospel makes people happy- I have seen it in my life and in the lives of those around me. I am so grateful for that knowledge, and I want to give it to other people.

How I live my faith

I've been a Mormon my whole life. I love my faith! Being a part of the church has helped me to do lots of things I never would have been involved in without it. I have always had a community within the church, which has given me many service opportunities. I've spent days cleaning up after flooding in Colorado, raking people's yards in the fall, and visiting those who don't often get visitors. I have served in the church as a youth leader, as a leader in my ward in college, and as a leader in my early morning church class (seminary). I always attend church on Sundays and other church events. I love it. It has made me a better person.
