Hi I'm Talan.

I am a hands-on husband and father. I love the outdoors and spending time with my family. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Talan. I love being a dad. A perfect day for me is spent with my wife and children. I love to go on family trips with them. Our two favorite places to go are the ocean and the mountains. I love to catch waves with my kids at my side when we are at the beach. When we go to our family ranch in the mountains I love to ride horses with them. Some of my happiest moments with my children are doing the little things together like playing games, cards or just watching a show together. I am a simple guy and don't need a lot to bring me happiness. My family is my greatest accomplishment and my greatest source for joy.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Mormon Church all my life. I have ancestors that were pioneers that sacrificed everything to belong to this church. As a father, I want my children to have the same blessings that I had from growing up in the church. It provides a necessary foundation for them. My testimony is simple. I believe in a loving God, I believe in a Savior and that through Him and by Him men can be saved. The Church of Jesus Christ helps give me the tools I need to be the best man I can be.

How I live my faith

To me the best way to show my love to my Savior is by serving others. I do this a father and husband everyday. Serving my family is what brings me happiness. I also love working with the youth in our church. I learn so much from their strength and examples. I am grateful for these opportunities.
