Hi I'm Hal

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father, husband, and physician. I am married to a beautiful, wonderful woman and have three great kids. I grew up with tall mountains and a lot of snow in the winter. After graduate school, I moved to California and discovered that millions of people live their whole lives withough having to shovel snow or scrape ice off their windshields. I became one of them. I love the desert and its stark beauty. I love the way the desert smells after a rainstorm. I love sunshine 350 days of the year. I go back to the mountains to ski. In fact, it has become our family sport. I also enjoy the beach and ocean and have done some scuba diving. Yes, the shark is real.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the LDS Church and it has been the anchor in my life. Through the turbulent teen years, high school, and lots and lots of schooling after high school, it has been a constant. Through many moves to different parts of the country and through many ups and downs, and through goods times and bad, the gospel of Jesus Christ has given me the security of knowing that I have a Father in Heaven and a Savior who know me personally and love me. It has given me insight into our purpose being here on Earth.

How I live my faith

I belive in Jesus Christ and try to follow His teachings.
