Kelly Eakins' home is a haven for friends and family alike. Her easy, comfortable manner is reflected in the environment she has created with her husband of almost 40 years.
They have worked hard to instill a deep love of and dependance upon family in their children and grandchildren, and have even extended the bonds of family to the members of their church small group.
The Eakins Family was severely tested when their adult son, Stephen, suffered a traumatic brain injury in 2009. Kelly and her husband Mark cared for Stephen for 8 years until he passed away in 2017. Despite the challenges and sorrow of those 8 years, Kelly credits God for sustaining her and giving her joy and hope through it all.
