Hi I'm Cassie

I grew up in California. I graduated from a military academy. I have 5 sisters and 8 brothers. I Am Mormon.

About Me

Some of my interests are joining the army and hopefully making a career out of it. My favorite color is purple and I love pizza. I have a real close relationship with my family. I am currently not in college but I hope to go back to school soon. I couldn't think of a better day then to give embark in the service of god.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know that my church is true in my heart. Praying everyday and scripture stidying doesn't only strengthen my testimony but it strengthens me as a person. In the past I felt that I wasn't a great daughter to my parents or a good sister to my siblings. I would always fight and argue with everyone in my house. When this happens, the thoughts in my mind gets very ugly and I tend to become aggressive with everyone in my household. I remember talking to one of my young women leaders about it and she told me to think about who I would be without them. She also told me to think about Christ visiting my family and what would have happened if he was there witnessing those things happen. How would he feel. I went home turning to my scriptures while crying. I cried out loud asking Heavenly Father why did I feel this way or think this way and why is it that I always want to leave or hurt myself. I got this calm feeling of comfort and my tears suddenly stopped coming down my face. My mind was totally blank. I knew then, that it wasn't just my mental breakdown or turning to my scriptures, but that I was never alone. Heavenly Father has been there with me feeling what I felt. The companionship of the Holy Ghost has never left my side and for that I am truly grateful. You can see a big difference from reading your scripture or keeping your baptismal covenants with Heavenly Father and how it can make a big difference in your daily life. Til this day, I still have that companionship and comfort.

How I live my faith

My ward family does a lot of service for those in need. Most of our ward has given theses services once or twice but my family and I does it every week. Not only do we give out food or clothing, but we also stay behind while other families go home and we clean. We do not necessarily have to but it's within our heart that we help clean and put of everything that has been use to serve others. We do not expect anything; it's just the feelings in our hearts and the thoughts in our head that pays this debt. Knowing that we've helped the staff clear up the events and that they are able to go home early to their families keep my family happy and faithful.
