Hi I'm Eastin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been happily married for two years and we have one son. I enjoy the outdoors, guns, motorcycles, and classic cars and trucks. I love to spend time with my family and read good non-fiction books.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be born into the church but this is not why I am still a practicing Mormon. There are many reasons why I have chosen to participate in the LDS religion but the bottom line is that I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me, time and time again, that it is true. I have read The Book of Mormon and felt the Spirit witness to me that it is an inspired book of scripture. I have visited historically significant sites pertaining to church history and again have felt the warm and comforting spirit testify that Joseph Smith and the early church leaders were inspired to restore Christ's church on Earth. I am also Mormon because I believe that God wants us to be happy and being a member and following the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints gives me joy and makes me happy. Knowing that God has a plan for me gives me purpose in this life and gives me hope for the future.

How I live my faith

During the week I try to be completely honest in all that I do and friendly to those around me. In our home we have family prayer every night and read a little bit from The Bible or The Book of Mormon. On Monday nights we have family home evening where we have a more formal lesson and spend time together. On Sundays I attend all of my church meetings and strive to participate in the discussions as I feel I gain more by doing so.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Besides learning of God and his commandments, we are able to feel the companionship of his Holy Spirit in our lives. We also obtain a desire to be good and to do good things to those around us. Show more Show less
