Hi I'm Brian

I'm an HR guy from California, now living in Utah, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I have been married for over 30 years and we are the parents of four children - two boys and two girls. As new empty nesters, we are adjusting to having older children who live away from us. I keep myself busy during the day with my own human resources consulting business. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, golf and fishing, and three grandsons. We recently received a mission assignment to serve in Moscow Russia to help with humanitarian needs there. We could not be more excited to start our service in January 2019!

Why I am a Mormon

As I witness the ever changing world around me, I am comforted to know that the gospel and teachings of Jesus Christ will always remain constant. I strongly believe that God loves all of his children, including those of us living on the earth today. I know, that as we try to make good choices, he sends thoughts and feelings to us to help us get through life's difficult times. I am also confident, that as we make mistakes, he is quick to forgive us and helps us get back on the right path. I feel blessed to know that families can live together for all eternity - not just until "death do us part". With this knowledge, I feel peace that only God can give. As you study and pray about God's eternal plan, I promise you will feel that peace, too.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to work with the youth in our congregation. It is fun to see them stretch and grow in new leadership roles, and it is a great joy for me to see them proactively reach out to those in our community who are in need of help. I love seeing the light in their faces as they forget themselves and serve others. In addition to my work with the youth, another brother and I regularly visit with four families in our congregation to teach them lessons and look after their needs. It is a great thing for me to put aside my own hectic problems for a while in order to help bless the lives of others.
