Hi, I’m Cassie. Thanks for visiting! Here’s a little about me:
I am a woman of many hats, and thankfully, I enjoy all of them:
Wife: I am blessed with an awesome husband who is the perfect complement to me. He is excellent at all things mathematical, charming with words, a chivalrous gentleman, and helps me lighten up and see the humor in every day situations. I could not have asked for a better provider for our family. I refer to him on the blog as “the hubs” or sometimes, “my hubby”.
Mom: We have 3 very spirited chillens age 6 & under:
Our eldest girl, A (6) who is very creative, smart, and helpful.
Our middle ‘brother sandwich’, B (3) who is funny, smart, and affectionate.
Our youngest girl, C (2) who is sweet, strong-willed, and independent.
It is frequently loud in our house when the kids are at play. I may get frustrated or impatient some days, but they really are the best kids. Many days I am left asking God, “What did I do to deserve such loving, helpful, understanding kids?”
Waitress Extraordinaire: My out of home job 3 nights a week. Serving people, accommodating particular requests, socializing, extending hospitality. I enjoy providing extra income for our family!
Prayer & Pastoral Team: Through our church and school community, I accept prayer requests, coordinate care, and one of my favorite things: praying over cards for people going through difficult situations. I am constantly blown away by what God has to say to His people to comfort them. And honored to be a little link in the process.
Family (wo)man: I am learning how to build better, longer-lasting relationships with the people in my different circles. I love people and learning how to love them better – especially through quality conversation over coffee, tea, or wine!
Natural Momma: (*NEW!*) I am slowly leaning toward more natural solutions to my family’s healthcare needs, cleaning dilemmas, personal care, and sleep patterns. I am thoroughly enjoying this journey exploring Essential Oils! You can view the ones I use here. I’ve always loved the verse from 3 John 1:2 – “Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.” I believe as we seek first His kingdom, health is one of the things that is added to us: as our soul is prospering, so does our health. I might have a closet dream of living out on the open land, harvesting our own food and enjoying the work of our hands. Maybe someday. 😉
All in all, I’m just an imperfect lady doing my best to receive all God has for me so I can give to others out of abundance. Though I’ve been called a Super Mom, I never feel like one. I want to contest the seemingly perfect lives we present on social media and Pinterest with the sometimes messy stories about family, raising kids, and trying to honor God in all I do. I try to embrace and learn from my daily adventures, struggles, and victories associated with pursuing the Proverbs 31 woman!
Cassie was raised in a faithful, religious family which gave her a great foundation for belief and strong sense of community. Family is important to her – both building relationships with current family, and embracing the traditions of her Irish and Italian heritage.
Cassie attended Northern Illinois University’s School of Music pursuing a degree in Music Education with an English minor. After 3 semesters and her husband proposing, she left school to build a business with him. They were married in 2006 and have 3 children together. They’ve discovered that marriage is not easy, but it IS well worth the effort. She is a SAHM by day, waitress by night.
In what free time she can find, she loves to read, write, pray, sing, and study the Word.
