About Me

Hello.

blanton-342

Welcome, friends! I’m Cassie- a wife, mom to 2 sweet boys, and most importantly, a follower of Jesus Christ. The desire of my heart is to glorify my Savior, and that’s why I write. I want this space to be a place where tired mamas, struggling teen girls, and everyone in between can find encouragement in their walk with Christ.

Diaries of a Daughter.

In August 2012, I lost my mom to cancer, so this blog began as a place to process and share what the Lord taught me as a daughter watching her mom suffer with cancer, and eventually pass away. By God’s grace, it’s grown into much more than that. I still write “diaries” about what He has and still is teaching me about being a daughter who lost her mom, but ultimately, I write “diaries” of being a daughter of the King of kings. Please know I don’t have it all together nor am I perfect. Pretty much all of what I write here comes from the overflow of the work the Lord is doing in my own heart.

What you’ll find here.

Simply, you’ll find whatever the Lord has on my heart. He continues to teach me as I follow Him through marriage and motherhood. He also continues to teach me about grief. He’s given me a deep passion for His Word, studying it, and Biblical literacy. I hope to share Jesus with you and encourage you in your walk with Christ.  My life verse is Romans 8:28, “For we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, those who have been called according to His purpose.”

Now, for a little fun.

 I love college football a whole lot (Go Gamecocks!). I joke that this is why my husband married me. On the beach with a good book is one of my favorite places to be (something I get from my mom).  Coffee, ice cream, journals, planners, and pretty pens are a few of my favorite things. I have a deep love for Sunday afternoon naps, baking, and Disney World. And one of the hardest things about parenting has been keeping a straight face when I’m not supposed to laugh.

Welcome, friends.  I’m glad you’re here.  Thanks for joining me as I diary about life as a daughter.

  1. Hi Cassie. I am Lynn, Your mom’s cousin. I grew up closely with your mom and loved her dearly-She was a Godly woman, sweet spirited-a true blessing. I will be following your blog and your words of Jesus. I am a believer of Jesus and his miracles. I believe that we are all here for a reason and we should all worship and praise the Lord, Follow our hearts and testify to anyone/everyone we can about Jesus and his Grace.

  2. Hi Cassie – I am a cheer director at a small private school in Ga. and was Google searching devotions that I could do with our girls. I ran across your mom’s Sweet and Salty devotion that you posted and immediately loved it – the one with the toothpaste 🙂 I wanted to let you know that the girls loved it and I loved being able to do a devotion with them that cam from another cheer mom. Thank you so much for posting it and I would love to do more of her devotions if you have any. I think it is always neat to see someone’s sweet legacy live on – even if it is states away! If you have any other devotions that you are willing to share,I registered my email address on this post. Thanks again, from the bottom of my heart!
