alyssaeakin Said goodbye to our foster dog Smitty today as he starts his journey to NY to find his forever home. Most people would say "aw it's just a dog" or "aw but they'll be happy" but no matter what is said, a piece of your heart breaks and the tears come. They're such sweet and fun creations that the Lord made for us to enjoy and to love and be loved by. I hope Smitty's new home sees him through our eyes. A piece of the Eakin clan will forever be in New York. Cheers to you, Smitty man. You rock no matter how many shoes you chew up. I hope your forever is full of treats, belly rubs and lots of chew toys. 🏻️ 5h

alyssaeakin "Community can look different for everyone but it’s simply being a part of each other’s lives. It doesn’t have to look a certain way, it just has to be valued and be intentional. It never just happens. I believe we will never reach our highest potential outside of community and God intended for it to be that way. We need each other and there is beauty in that." I don't just love these people but I need them. Tuesday nights with them refresh my soul and remind me of why God didn't intend for us to do this life alone. It's so much more than meeting or talking once a week. It's talking throughout the week, asking hard questions, having tough conversations and loving through the victories and defeat. I pray everyone finds a community. 12h

alyssaeakin This babe is the big 3-0 today!

His smile warms my heart. He is a man after God's heart. Constantly striving to be near Him. He takes his role as a leader of our family and friends seriously by daily lifting us up in prayer and pointing us to truth. He works his butt off and does it with excellence. He does all of this with a smile on his face and a positivity that is contagious. I thank God for this day to celebrate my sweet J! I love you and I like you, Jacob! Now let's eat cake and talk about Star Wars and soccer! This day is for you

alyssaeakin Celebrating year 1 of marriage with this one. Marriage is truly a miracle. Out of all of the people in the world, God gives you one person. A person to laugh with, cry with, be challenged by, to serve and serve with, to grow with, and to be loved by and love with. It is by far, my favorite journey and my most favorite reminder of my Creator. I see God daily in the struggles and sweet victories in marriage.
Jacob, thank you for laying yourself down daily and surrendering your selfishness and own desires to the Lord. Thank you for daily walking through this life striving to show me the meaning of sacrificial love. Thank you for serving me with the biggest heart of anyone I have ever known. Thank you for constantly showing me what it's like to love and lead with patience and faith. You are my person. My most favorite person and I am so proud to be yours. Here's to many more years of loving Jesus and eachother. Nobody else I would want to change the world with
Happy Anniversary sweet J.

alyssaeakin It's very hard to find a good human these days. I'd much rather spend my time around my husband and puppies or goats but I am so thankful for this one. Months without seeing each other and our talks always bless and refresh my soul. Love you sweet Alex! 4w
