Hi I'm Brad Hansen

I'm a Family man, horse enthusiast, Investment advisor, adventurer, lover of truth and a sincere believer in Mormonism.

About Me

I am a proud Father of 4 eclectic children and am married to the love of my Life. I love the wilderness areas of Utah and am always trying to find time to be in the mountains. My idea of the perfect day is riding my favorite horse "Cisco" and exploring some new area of wilderness in the High Country. I enjoy fishing, gardening, driving my tractor, working hard and general farm work. I am passionate about horses and think riding horses is a celestial activity. My lifelong career has been as an Investment Advisor. I love my work and enjoy very much my association with wonderful clients and business partners. I look forward to being a Grandparent someday and spending time sharing my love of the outdoors and animals with my grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a Mormon because of the "Book of Mormon" This book is either Truth or fiction. It cannot be both. The story of the Book of Mormon coming forth in the 1800's is simply one of the most amazing stories ever told. As a seeker of Real Truth it required of me a serious and diligent effort to determine whether it was a work of fiction or a genuine record of Ancient Prophets words as it represents. I am a Mormon because this book is a real and authentic record of Prophets of ancient America. It is absolutely true and confirms as a second witness with the Bible as a record of Christ's ministry as the Son of God on this earth. I am a Mormon because the Book of Mormon with the Bible stands as witnesses to the people of the World the truths that God would have us know. I am a Mormon because I have found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints the same church that existed in the Primitive Church. I do not believe anyone can deny these truths if they will read the Book of Mormon with a sincere spiritual and earnest heart. I know this is a bold statement but I believe it is true.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by keeping my Promises. I have made promises to my Heavenly Father and my family. I believe if I keep these commitments then I will have lived a successful and fulfilling life. I try hard to volunteer and serve others. I served a mission as a young man in the South and learned to love people and to see people as literally children of God. I have been blessed to serve in a variety of ways in the Church. I have been a Scout Master, served in a variety of leadership positions serving the needs of young people and the general congregations of my Church. I love to teach, especially young men and women. I enjoy early morning personal scripture reading and quiet time. Seeking truth in all forms is of great interest to me. I love talking about my faith and enjoy discussing truths I have discovered with others. I am a firm believer that weekly attendance in church, diligent payment of tithes and offerings, going to the temple often and diligent effort in serving others will bring enduring happiness in this life and the life to come.
