Hi I'm Chad Van Orden

I'm currently a missionary in Alberta, Canada. I like Belgian Waffles and ice cream. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm loud and obnoxious around the ones I love, but shy and conservative around those I don't know. You'd never think it, but I write poetry and get nervous about the smallest things and worry myself sick. I play sports and love the outdoors. I love my family. They are everything to me. I wouldn't be the person I am without the constant support of my loved ones pushing me to be better. I like to kick it to alternative rock, but cruise to country music on a Sunday. I'm Chad.

Why I am a Mormon

I have never been as happy as I am when I do what I know God wants me to do. The least I can do is live the best I can and try to influence those around me for good.

How I live my faith

I do what I can to be someone people feel comfortable talking to. I don't impose my beliefs on others, but would love to help them feel the peace and happiness I feel through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
