Hi I'm Hal

I grew up and live in California. I enjoy the beach, playing hockey, golf, and most sports.

About Me

I was adopted as a child by loving parents. I am a father of five children, one who has special needs due to cerebral palsy and learning disabilities. I am high school teacher with credentials to teach special education and business. I also coach high school golf.

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought up in the church and have come to know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is taught within this church. Jesus Christ stands as the head of the church and leads the church through a living prophet and apostles. The Book of Mormon stands as another testament of Jesus Christ as the Bible does as well. The teachings of Jesus Christ taught within the church have given me direction and focus to truly understand why we are here on earth and why we face the adversities of life. My family is extremely important to me and church teaches me the importance of being a good husband and father. I know that when I live the teachings of Jesus Christ I find lasting happiness, which leads to a better and more fulfilling life.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life in accordance with the gospel of Jesus Christ. I strive to treat others with respect and love while not taking myself or others too serious. My family is the center of my life and everything revolves around them. I try to focus my time around spending time with my wife and each of my children. My wife and I try to teach our children that service is the key to a happy and fulfilling life.
