What inspired you to dedicate your life to Christ at 16?

Cassandra: My oldest sister, Joyce, gave her life to the Lord and invited me to a Bible study. There, I heard the gospel and realized God’s love for me and us all. At that point, I gave my life to Christ and served Him from that day until now.

As a church member at Fresh Anointing House of Worship, you enjoy serving in multiple capacities. In what ways are you active in ministry?

Cassandra: Deliverance Ministry and Prophetic Ministry. I assist as needed with the Youth and Women.

How did God lead you to serve your community through real estate and becoming a broker for your company, Chosen Realty?

Cassandra: In my early twenties in college, God spoke to me about going into real estate. However, I didn’t immediately pursue that career field. That’s when God gave me a dream that revealed how I would begin my real estate career. In the dream, I saw a pregnant woman starting in real estate who did well and went on to become a broker. Little did I know that lady was me. That’s how I started my career, pregnant with ambition. Thirteen years later, I went on to become a broker. It happened the way he showed me in the dream.

What does it mean to be a Christian in the workplace?

Cassandra: It means to exemplify Christ in all we do and represent Him well. People observe us and how we conduct ourselves not only in church but in our day-to-day lives. This Christian walk is more than lip service, but a lifestyle that reflects a relationship with the lover of our souls, Jesus Christ.

How have your prayer life and faith sustained you when challenges occur?

Cassandra: You can’t live the life of a Christian effectively without prayer and faith. (The just shall live by faith). Total dependency on God is essential. I need His guidance and wisdom daily, and I communicate with Him during challenging times. It’s not always easy, and I don’t get it right every time, but His grace and mercy sustain me. Walking closely with Him and learning to trust Him is most important. A relationship with Him has been the sustaining strength in my life.

How have you incorporated Christ into your 29 years of marriage?

Cassandra: I learned to love, respect, and honor my husband as the Lord requires and expects. I was willing to submit and govern myself by the word of God, even when I didn’t want to sometimes (smile). I realized flesh and self have to die daily, and my love for God became my motivation for how I respond to and treat my spouse because I want to please Him.

What encouraging advice would you give someone struggling with their faith?

Cassandra: Don’t ever quit. The race is not for the faint-hearted, but realize you are not in this race alone. Be strong in the Lord and stand in the power of His might, not your own. The Bible says, “that in the last days, there will be a great falling away. Pray that your faith fails not. When you’re struggling with doubt, unbelief, etc., pursue drawing closer to the Lord and talking with him about your troubles-God cares and will strengthen you.”

You uphold and live by the biblical principle, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” How has this helped you and others?

Cassandra: I treat others the way I would want to be treated by someone. I utilize this principle in my personal life and my business. I pride myself on giving exceptional service to every seller or homebuyer I represent because it’s the type of service I would personally want and expect.

How have you encouraged your four sons to become men of God as a mother?

Cassandra: By living a life before them and encouraging them to live by the verse in Deuteronomy 6:7. To pursue and love the Lord with all their hearts and to not conform to this world. I committed to pray with my children, as well as for them, and teach them the word of God.

How do you live out your faith in a way that exemplifies God’s love toward us and would encourage others to seek God?

Cassandra: I live by learning to love and give of myself to others. A lot of people are in need physically and spiritually. So, there is an opportunity to love and serve others every day. We should love not only in words but in deeds. (John 3:18)

Cassandra Andrews has been married for 29 years to her husband, Jeremiah. They’ve built a life in Montgomery with their four sons: Jeremiah Jr. (28), Jonathan (25), Joshua (23), and Joseph (18).
