Hi I'm Joel Hancock

I am a businessman and writer who lives on a small island off the coast of North Carolina. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up and live on an Island off the coast of North Carolina. I have six children and thirteen grandchildren. I sell insurance for a living, and I write books and articles about local history and culture.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a fourth generation member whose great grandparents joined the Church soon after the first missionaries came here over a century ago.

How I live my faith

For the past twenty-five years I have served as a Bishop and Stake President.
