Hi I'm Owen Hansen

I married a girl from Oklahoma. I am a father of six, grand-father of thirty, and a great grand-father of thirty-seven.

About Me

We are Owen and Darlene. We are parents, grandparents, and great grandparents, because a girl from Oklahoma and a boy from Utah married in the Salt Lake Temple. We have been blessed with a righteous posterity. All of our descendants are active in The Church. Our children and grandchildren have served missions and have married in the temple. We hope that all of us will remain true and faithful that we might be together as a family forever.

Why I am a Mormon

We are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints often called Mormons because we have received personal inspiration and revelation that this work is true. We are descendants of Mormon Pioneers that joined the Church and immigrated to America. Owen and Darlene's grandparents were in the first company that entered the Salt Lake Valley with Brigham Young.

How I live my faith

We have been married for 65 years. Our lives together began by being married in the temple. We have raised a family together. Our children were taught the gospel of Jesus Christ in our home. We have served in the Church in various callings and assignments. Owen has served as a Bishop, High Councilor, and Temple Sealer. Darlene has served as a Stake Young Womens President and multiple times as a Stake Primary President. Together we have served missions in Dallas and Laothion as leadership missionaries. We have actively lived our faith our entire lives and hope our descendants will do likewise. Our greatest life work and the manifestation of our faith has been raising our children and grandchildren.
