Cassandra's Story


 
     Cassandra “Cassie” Hart, wife and mother to three lovely children, was born in Us Naval Hospital, San Diego, California in 1977.  Within three months the family was transferred to Holy Loch Scotland a US Submarine base. Then, her father was assigned a four year tour of duty at US Naval base, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Following this, Cassandra's father was reassigned back to Holy Loch Scotland for an extended tour of duty where they remained for many years.

     As a child and young adult, in Scotland, Cassandra spent a lot of her free time  studying dance with the accredited British Dance Association, and playing the guitar.  She enjoyed classical ballet, tap and modern dance.  She also competed in highland Scottish dancing for many years.

     Cassandra studied at Strathclyde University in Glasgow, Scotland.  After graduating University with a Scottish Bachelor of Arts in psychology (completing the 1 year additional Scottish Honors Program), she taught elementary English within the international community in Bern, Switzerland. 

     Upon returning to the US in May 2004, Cassandra reflects feeling the Holy Spirit drawing her back into an intimate relationship with God. After experiencing the power of prayer and amazing healing In March 2004, she found solace, companionship, strength and healing in the Lord.  She describes this time as a gradual revelation that Christ is real and  is pursuing an intimate relationship with her, as He is all of us, she adds. Cassandra devoted her life to the Lord 2007 and felt called to use her musical gifts for Christ.  She started song writing inspired through heart-felt testimony and the prompting of the Holy Spirit.  

​     Cassandra began writing to share the gospel.  She says she writes to spend time with Him and explains song writing became her passion; God has inspired her to start expressing what He was saying to her and communicating it through music in a way that words can’t.  She believes that music is a powerful way to share gospel truths while at the same time breaking down walls that exist between the believer and the non-believer, Cassandra believes that such approaches (among the many) will help God heal the world.

​     Cassandra served as a children’s worship leader for two years and has lead worship at women’s retreats and large women’s bible studies.  She has also served as a leader in MOPS (Mother of Pre-Schoolers) for many years and also runs a women’s Bible study in her home.

     In 2012 Cassandra formed the Dove and the Melody, a Christian harmony duet, where she had an opportunity to showcase her song writing for the first time.  After the duet disbanded Cassandra continued song writing to pursue a solo career.

     Cassie would like to thank Pastor Stephen Perillo for his mentorship, and continuing to encourage her to use her gift for the Lord.
