Hi I'm Colton Eakins

I grew up in Texas. I`m into the outdoors and sports.I`m a mormon

About Me

I`m a big outdoor, adventurous kind of person. I like to mountain bike, and hike or do anything that involves nature. I like to play basketball and tennis for team playing, but I`ll play any sport for fun. In the summer I really like to go boating and go tubing and I`m starting to learn how to wake board.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life. I don`t know what the other religions feel like or what they do, but I do know one thing, and that`s the feeling I get every time I read or hear about the gospel. Every time I read the Book of Mormon I get that warm, happy feeling or I get goose bumps. And the stories in there are incredible and you just some how know that what its saying is true. I pray every night and I can say I see the difference in my life when I ask for help. Just this past year I have been having troubles with my grades in school and I really started praying on how I need a better work ethic and improvement in my work and just last term I reached my first strait A report card. I have so many other stories , but I cant tell them all now, but this is why I`m a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I was a youth president leader for my ward where I grew up and just recently was a counselor for the youth group here. I try my best to attend church meetings every week and every Wednesday the youth groups get together for an activity that relates to the gospel. I attend a class called "seminary" where we learn about the scriptures and about the history and beliefs of our religion. Also, every night I try to read the book of Mormon with my family and we`re about three fourths of the way through.
