    The Four Rs

    Photo by Blessed is She I know I’ve been posting a lot more frequently lately but Jesus and the Holy Spirit are so good and I just feel so compelled to share. I am rewatching a Virtual Bible Study (VBS) with Blessed is She and they discussed an easy way to share the Gospel, the 4 Rs. Below is an incredible (and simple) way explained by Beth Davis to share and understand the Good News of the Gospel. Relationship – We were created to be in an unbroken relationship with God the Father. Rupture – We ruptured that relationship through sin. Adam and Eve were cast out of the garden…

    A Holy Week Unlike Any Other

    It’s no secret that this Lent has not gone to basically any of our plans. I guess it’s good that God has a better plan for us in store. At the beginning of Lent at the end of February, my biggest faith worry was honestly if I had enough time to eat after daily Mass before class or if I would find enough time in my day to do a daily rosary. That sounds so ridiculous writing that now based on everything that has happened since then, but that’s the truth and I no longer have to worry about either of those things. The week before spring break was a…

    #TellYourStory

    Each day I am deeply inspired by Beth Davis and today wasn’t any different. Today I watched Blessed Is She’s “Teachable Tuesday” encouraging each and every one of us to tell our story of how Jesus Christ and the Good News have saved our lives. It is no secret that there is a lot of uncertainty and despair in the world right now and times are hard. For a long time, I have kept most of this story hidden from the world because I never really know how I will be received after being so vulnerable. In all honesty, I’m terrified to even scrape the surface. This is by no…

    Dear Younger Cassie

    My dad recently sent me my “letter to myself” that I wrote in 8th grade. I will spare you the pain of having to read it; it’s 26 pages long and honestly just cringy to read for so many reasons. However, it did inspire me to write a letter to middle school me to explain how life turned out over five years later. Dear Cassie, First of all, you survived high school and almost half of college! Congrats! That is an accomplishment in itself. I recently was able to read the letter you wrote to yourself and it was really eye-opening. Honestly, most of the struggles that you faced that…

    Keeping Myself Grounded in God

    This past week celebrated two months since moving in for Sophomore year! It has been a wild roller coaster ride for sure, filled with some exhilarating and some exhausting moments, but I think it’s starting to even out a bit. One of my biggest goals for the past few weeks has been to remain positive and focus on the good. If you know me, you know this can be a real struggle, especially surrounded by the stress that college can be. The easiest way for me to do this is to give everything to God. Now, this is easy to say but one of the hardest things for me to…

    Why I Am Blessed

    As September ends and October begins, I want to make a little list of a few of the things that make me realized how blessed I am surrounding me. Disclaimer: I am writing this more for myself than anyone else. Honestly, Sophomore year hit me hard and September was challenging to put it easily. For most of the month, I was covered in piles of homework and trying to keep my head above water in the rushing river rapids that are life. To top it off, my body decided to shut down a bit and get very sick in the last week. There were many moments when it was hard…

    Seeing the Beauty of God from a New Angle

    Recently I had the incredible opportunity to travel to Virginia at the University of Mary-Washington for the 2019 Digital Pedagogy Lab (recap(s) coming soon!) and was inspired by a post my partner Ruthie wrote, which can be found here. When I got home, I was again inspired by Deacon Jeff’s incredible homily at Prince of Peace during weekend mass. Deacon Jeff’s Homily focused on Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” When I heard this verse, everything in my life just seemed to make a bit more sense. There were multiple times in the past week that I…
