My name is Cassie. I’ll always be an Oregonian and love the rugged south coast, but right now I live in Michigan. I’ve been a lot of things: a student, a rower, an endurance rider, a basketball player, a wanna-be paddler, and a cyclist. I’ve tried to be a runner, but that never seems to pan out. Currently, I’m a biologist, a hiker, a reader, a musician, and a Christian (that’s the most important part). I’m not talking about just showing up at church every Sunday – because I used to do that. I’m talking about a living, breathing relationship with the Living Word . . . the One who gave His life for me so that I could live, and who rose from the dead to prove it was true. THAT’S the stuff that really matters.
