Hi I'm Mick Hawton

I'm many things - husband, father, policy wonk and entrepreneur, carpenter and coach, student and leader. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

What about me? - My family including my wife, two sons, daughter and extended members is where my heart is, always. - Serving others is awesome! - Working smart and hard have brought about great results in my life. - Lifetime learning, in and out of school, keeps me engaged and challenged. - Athletics, coaching and working with youth helps keep me young!

Why I am a Mormon

Hope, peace, love, knowledge and joy. I have found all of these in great measure as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Over the years I have found peace and knowledge as I have read, studied, and pondered on the scriptures, the Book of Mormon and the Bible particularly, and then prayed to know if they come from God. I have felt the conviction of the Holy Spirit, confirm to me, that they indeed come from God and contain His words for us. Having this and the knowledge that we have living prophets on the earth today to guide us, has contributed greatly to my joy. I have felt deeply the love of my Father in Heaven who continues to reach out to us through the scriptures and prophets to help me understand more fully the sacrifice and life of His Son Jesus Christ. Most of all I have been blessed with hope centered on the Savior, Jesus Christ, who has given all to save me, and all of us, from sin and mistakes to help us return to our Father in Heaven. Being able to know these things through the Holy Spirit and learning to live a life focused on the life, teachings, sacrifice and blessings that come through Jesus Christ is why I am a Mormon.
