Hi I'm Chad

I grew up in Utah. I have worked in Human Resources for mining companies in the Western US and Australia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I love to travel especially cruises as you get to travel to new locations but only unpack once. I love the beauty that the Lord has created for me as well as the variety of cultures and experiences He has allowed me to enjoy. I lived in Australia for 2.5 years and for a farm boy to live next to 6 of the most beautiful beaches in the world was a great joy and a blessing in my life. The culture was very much in line with what I enjoy and the people were absolutely wonderful. My career has been in the mining industry in such colorful areas as Winnemucca Nevada or Bolwara New South Wales Australia. I have always been involved in the people side of the business whether in labor and Industrial relations or as a Vice President of Human Resources as I am now. I have enjoyed working with a variety of people and learning about others. My greatest sence of accomplishment is in my children and grandchildren as they are happy and healthy positive contributors to their families and communities.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have an uabiding testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel. I know that God loves his children today as in times past so when he restored the Church in these latter days through Joseph Smith it makes perfect sense to me that He would want me to have the same organization and gospel leadership. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I know that God loves me so much that he sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to take my sins so I could live with Him again in the future if I will live His gospel and repent of the sins I have committed. I know I am a sinner in thought, word, and deed but through a loving Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ I can live with the Father again. Having living Prophets and Apostles on the earth today allows God the Father to guide and direct my life just as He did for those people in Biblical times. Heavenly Father knows me and the secret desires of my heart so all I have I owe to Him and all I can accomplish or attain I can only achieve through Him. My life is so much better today due to His devine intervention that I can not imagine what it would be like not to have His spirit to be with me in all that I do.

How I live my faith

In order for me to maximize my beliefs I feel it is important to live my life in such a way that anyone who would know me would know that I love my Savior Jesus Christ and that I try to have His qualities about me. That means I need to give to the Church as well as the communities where I live of my time and talents. I have served on a hospital board, working with the youth as a Scoutmaster, Cubmaster, and Varsity Coach. I have coached little league sports even when I had no idea what I was doing. I have served faithfully in all my Church callings.
