Hi I'm Kristin Eakins

I'm a mother, a wife, sister and daughter to those around me and am proud to be a daughter of our heavenly father, & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mother, a wife, sister and daughter to those around me and I'm a Mormon. I have been a member since late 2005. I have been married for five and a mother to a four year old daughter named Maddison.

Why I am a Mormon

I first became interested in the church through Elder and Sister Parker. A missionary couple that taught me what I was missing from my life. Because of them I have stayed active in the church, doing what I know I can to show Jesus Christ and Heavenly father that I am here for the right reasons. My family are the most important treasure to me along with my scriptures.

How I live my faith

I live my life to the best of my ability in keeping the commandments of the Lord. By attending church, keeping the Sabbath day holy, and participating activity in my calling as a CTR teacher, and reading my scripture daily. Keeping Monday nights family home evening simple and fun.

What is being a Mormon like?

Kristin Eakins
Being a Mormon is really different from the two previous religions I was in before joining the church. I was originally taught that Jesus would pick and choose who could enter the gates of heaven. It was not until I met the Parkers, the missionary couple that taught me, that I was able to truly understand the love our Father in Heaven and his son Jesus Christ has for us. We all have to work toward heaven. One way to heaven is through repentance with forgiving those around us that have done wrong to us or those around us. I have learned that becoming a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints has made my life easier and peaceful. Through scripture reading and prayer I am able to feel Gods love for us. We struggle like everybody else outside of the church. We are no different from anyone else, our perspectives from everyone else are just the same if not a little different. That is what makes an LDS stand out more from the other religions. Show more Show less
