Cassie Herrington is an iced-coffee-obsessed youth minister with a passion for getting people to Heaven! She has degrees in Theology and Communication from Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, MI.
As a Catholic theologian and youth minister, Cassie knows the beauty that is found in the lives of the saints. Catholics—young and old—can benefit from learning about the heroic virtue found in the lives of the many Catholic saints.
In January 2021, Cassie felt the call to write children’s books about the saints, and her journey as an author began! Within five months, Cassie had self-published her first three books. With thousands of inspiring stories of sainthood, Cassie looks forward to expanding the Little Saint Stories series in the near future.
Cassie’s goal is to help all children know that they are made for sainthood. She also values helping parents introduce their little ones to the heroic stories of the saints. Let’s make Heaven crowded!
"Litte Saint Stories Germaine is a beautiful book with a valuable lesson for children. The illustrations are warm and bring life to the story. Author Cassie Herrington educates children and their families on the life story of Saint Germaine. Saint Germaine spent her life tending to sheep and was called upon the Lord to take care of the poor. Her faith is observed in her prayers and diligent visits to church. The lesson found in this book teaches children that when we follow Jesus Christ, have faith, and love him, we will find that God will take care of us. My children loved the story about Saint Germaine. I highly recommend this book to families." -School Psychologist
"I like Saint Germaine. She was kind and caring. I like it because she has sheep like Jesus. Jesus looked after sheep too. Jesus Loves me and looks out for me. The pictures are adorable. I love your book." -Child age 5
Little Saint Stories Francis of Assisi
"Families will enjoy the beautiful illustrations and educational storylines of Saint Francis of Assisi. Author Cassie Herrington creates an endearing storing about Saint Francis. He once lived a life of riches and later found that money and lavished parties are not what brings happiness. It is what we do to help others that brings joy. Saint Francis chose to live his life helping the poor and sharing his love for God with others. The book also provides detailed background information about Saint Francis that others may not know. I encourage others to read this book to learn more about Saint Francis of Assisi. My children enjoyed the story and asked many questions." -School Psychologist
"I love Saint Francis of Assisi because one day met a homeless man and something changed. He used to live a life of luxury and going to parties. He changed his ways and packed up what he did not need and gave them to the poor. He took care of the poor. Now, he lives in heaven with God."

"Little Saint Stories Joseph is a must-read! Children will learn about the life of Joseph and his important journey. In this book, families will see how Joseph met Mary and became the father to Jesus Christ. There were times when Joseph had fears, but he had faith in God and trusted God’s plan. Joseph went forth and guarded Jesus Christ. He taught Jesus to pray and how to love one another. Author Cassie Herrington also provides the reader with detailed descriptions of Joseph’s place of birth, feast days, and more. Little Saint Joseph is an excellent book to read to your children. A great book to encourage children to talk about God."
"I like Joseph because he likes building and he did caring things. I like Mary because she did caring things and she was sweet and she was Jesus’s Mommy. The pictures were cute and I like the whole town. I liked seeing Jesus as a little kid." -Child age 5
