Hi I'm Brad Hall

I'm a native Arizonan, I love the outdoors, I love good food, I love my family, I'm a physical therapist and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived 28 of my 30 years in the sun of Arizona. Despite the heat, I love just about anything outside. I have two older brothers and two sisters. With 17 nieces and nephews our big family is spread across the southwest of the United States. My amazing wife has blessed us with a little boy and our second is on the way. We both make an effort to be involved in a community and neighborhood that we love. With family, friends, and community we consider ourselves incredibly blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

One of the things I love the most about my religious life is what I feel. Throughout my schooling I learned about biology, chemistry, physics and other important topics and love learning about them. But when I study about the life of Christ and try to live my life by His example there is a significant difference in what I feel. The more I learn of My Redeemer the stronger my feelings of love and gratitude for Him become. There seems to be an unlimited sources of entertainment all around me that try to fill my time and attention but nothing brings a stronger feeling of purpose and direction than my spiritual quest to learn of Jesus Christ and follow His example.

How I live my faith

I think the foundation of how I live my faith is service. There are formal forms of this service, such as preparing and teaching classes at church, or making monetary contributions to the poor but I equally value the informal and impromptu forms of service; stopping to help someone in need, smiling at someone at the grocery store, or genuinely listening to someone who's struggling. Most of all I enjoy serving my family at home. I often think of and try to follow the description of Jesus Christ himself, "He went about doing good." (Acts 10:38)
