Hi I'm Chloe Haderlie

I grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I love to organize things. I think laughter is critical to being healthy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my first year of college (and am definitely the typical freshman "major changer"). I danced from age 4 to grade 12. I love singing- it's the best stress reliever in the world! Not surprisingly, I love music...any and all. I love having guitar calluses. I think that the time we're given in this life is simultaneously our best friend and worst enemy. The next step in my life is to dedicate 18 months of my life to serving God and His children. Both by strengthening those that are already a part of his flock (including myself) and those that are searching for truth. I have been called to serve in Tokyo, Japan. I feel both humbled and privileged ( and anxious) to be serving there. I think I have the very best best friends in the world. Because I love trying virtually everything I am not great at any one thing. (Scratch that..I don't love trying to fit my life in two suitcases). I think laughter is the solution to all negativity. And I think feeling "inspired" is the best feeling ever!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because taking part in the gospel of Jesus Christ continually fills my life with light. Laughter with my friends is more precious, conversing with the little children in my life is more amusing, time spent alone is less lonely, small acts of service become more rewarding, time spent with family feels more meaningful, mistakes become less devastating, dreams seem more reachable, and a soul filled with unrest can be calmed. I was raised in the church but growing up I have had a lot of experience with those who are not members of the LDS church. While also interacting with those who share my faith. Though I believe that every single person inherently has an eternal worth, the contrast of light in their lives is remarkable. Being a Mormon has not removed all doubt or pain or questions from my life. Life is still hard. But my life has also been rich and full of hope. There come moments of illumination, inspiration, gratitude, and true peace that I feel I would be lacking without my membership in the true church of Jesus Christ. There is still much I do not yet understand, but the peace and hope that the gospel brings into my life continue to nudge me to be an active member and to make morally correct decisions. I am a Mormon because the gospel illuminates my life in a way that nothing else can.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively participating in my church ward weekly and trying to see others for "who they can become."
