Hi I'm Barry Hansen

I'm a Mormon. I love family, flying, serving others. I live in Arizona.

About Me

I married my high school sweetheart and now am the father of 3 beautiful children. I have worked for a Bio-Technology company called Genentech for over 20 years. My passion is spending time with my family. In particular I love flying my Cirrus airplane to new and exciting places. Much of my life is centered around finding ways to spend time with my wife and family. We love to boat, travel, and just spend a Saturday afternoon working around the house together.

Why I am a Mormon

The direction and happiness I receive by abiding the teaching of the Lord's church bring real meaning to my life. Knowing that this life is but a small part of the eternal plan of happiness that the Jesus Christ taught gives perspective and meaning to me during challenging and difficult times in my life. The teaching of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints help frame every decision, direction and moment of my daily life. Although I was born in a Mormon family and taught early the principles and teaching of the church, it was not until I was a adolescent that it sunk deep in my heart and caused me to want to live up to his standards because I love the Lord and not because my parents or others wanted me too. I can testify that the this Church is true, that Jesus Christ lives, that the Book of Mormon is true and that we are lead by a true and living prophet today.

How I live my faith

My day is shaped around early time to pray, study and learn the Word of God. This however is a small part of how I live my faith. Service to others brings me great happiness. I have spent several years working with the young men in our church and community. They are a valiant and wonderful generation. I can always been seen as the one at company cocktail parties with a glass of water, Sprite, or milk. Ymmm. i will be the designated driver.
