My name is Cassie Graham. Born and residing in Southeast Missouri in the United States of America, I’m married to a wonderful man. We both have shared much tragedy in our lives. However, we keep praising GOD through it all and keep the faith. Currently, I am studying Christian Life Coach training at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about online free ministry and Bible courses, Click Here).
When I Came To Know JESUS!
It was in December of 1998 at my Southern Baptist church. My family and I were staying for the monthly baptisms. Service began like any other service, I was writing notes to my cousin about staying all night. Then all of a sudden, during the altar call, my cheeks were hot. There was a burning inside my body as well as outside that engulfed me!
I looked up at my parents and said I had to go to the altar! I asked my mom to go with me. Of course, she was all for it. I was there praying to Jesus, and I gave my heart and soul to Him! Brother Chuck, our Pastor, was so happy about it. He then asked if I wanted to be baptized in the Holy Spirit as well. The fire in me made me hotter, so I said, YES! That was when my walk with GOD began!
God Is There When We Drift
Sadly, I really drifted and got caught up in the world after heartbreak and the loss of my job due to my living situation in 2013. However, 2017 was the worst. From being assaulted on my birthday to self-harming, attempting suicide, then staying in the bottle to kill the pain. I pushed God to the back burner when He should’ve been ALWAYS front and center. I accepted that things were never going to look up and I’d never find true love. But then March 2018 happened! I met the love of my life when he walked through my check-out line at Walmart In Shelbyville, Indiana! We married on August 19, 2018, and got pregnant with triplets! Sadly, I miscarried them on October 1.
With Pain and Suffering Came CLARITY
So with the miscarriage came a lot of prayer, trust, and belief. No matter how it went while I was in the hospital trying to save our babies, GOD had a plan and works for our best. That week in the hospital, I regained my closeness with the LORD ALMIGHTY! I asked for His forgiveness when I drifted and for Him to give me peace and strength in whatever road He would take me down. He chose to take our beautiful babies home with Him and my grandparents and aunt.
Also, all this brought some health issues to light, and Jesus restored my health! If it wasn’t for the circumstance of my miscarriage, these issues would’ve never been addressed. Everything happens for a reason and for God’s purpose. He has our story written before we were even born.
Re-Dedication to Christ
Since I re-dedicated my life to the Lord, I’ve cleansed my life of anything of darkness and earthly material that does not support my walk. I started Bible study and praying for my husband to eventually get on board. After about one and a half years, he came to me wanting to get involved with Bible study also. He wanted me to help guide him to know the Lord! It was my pleasure to do so!
After implementing a couple’s Bible study and prayer life into our home, GOD laid on my heart that I need to lead from my experiences. I’m to help others through everything I’ve been through and still go through. I spent a day researching places to study. All of them were way out of what I could afford. We are financially struggling at the moment. I prayed on it and BOOM! I found the Christian Leaders Institute. I’ve not looked back! I know what I want in my future through this amazing school and the opportunities available!
My Goals at CLI: Christian Life Coach Training
I am taking Christian Life Coach training so I can help others from my experience and training. I also want to get a space for ministry in the area. There is not a place to go and get help here. I also want to get my Bachelor’s Degree in Divinity. There are so many goals and aspirations burning in my soul! I can NOT get enough!
I’m also very excited to become a Vision Partner! I want to be able to do what I can to keep the courses free, so everyone can have a chance when GOD calls them! The free courses at CLI have been such a saving grace for me so I want to pay it forward. I’m so blessed and excited for the Future!
