Van Harden is known nationally for his creative broadcasting career and inventions. Through his twenty-seven years as program director of WHO radio in Des Moines, the station has been awarded thirteen national Marconi Awards, five of which he has received personally for his own morning radio program, which he has hosted for those entire twenty-seven years.

He has also owned a radio station and hosted a TV show, but more important to Van has been his thirty years as an adult Bible teacher. He has taught and spoken in many churches and denominations, but has always insisted on teaching straight out of the Bible, which he calls "our owner's manual." He and his wife Denise have three grown children, five grandchildren and live in his childhood

Life in the Purple Wedge! by Van Harden
“Personally, I’m choosing to dwell upon the glory of the kingdom of which I am a part, even though I’m still a witness and sometimes a victim of the junk in ‘this’ world.”

“The best times we’ve had on earth are usually with those we love.”
Van Harden, Life in the Purple Wedge!

“As we Christians strive to be more influenced by God’s kingdom than by this world, we’re reminded we will sometimes slip, but ‘if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness’ (1 John 1:9).”
Van Harden, Life in the Purple Wedge!

“I had treated my temporary earthly problems so emotionally and seriously that they became major energy zappers, brain drains, and heart breakers. I knew I was a Christian living in this world, but things didn’t really sink in until the concept of the purple wedge made me ‘see’ it and put things into perspective.”
Van Harden, Life in the Purple Wedge!

“…one thing we know for sure: everybody has to be somewhere. Is it possible you are somewhere you didn’t fully realize?”
Van Harden, Life in the Purple Wedge!

“We are stuck on the obvious of this world, and it so fills our minds and our beings that there is little room for anything else, even if that "obvious" is merely a small part of what is real.”
Van Harden, Life in the Purple Wedge!

“If there is a ‘this world,’ there must be a ‘that world!’ There must be another world!”
Van Harden, Life in the Purple Wedge!

“For believers, there is much more to existence than simply passing out of one world and into another.”
Van Harden, Life in the Purple Wedge!

“Everyone in heaven is in God’s kingdom. They are in the 100 percent blue portion of the map. But not everyone in God’s kingdom is in heaven. Is it really possible to live in two worlds at the same time? Absolutely! If you are a Christian, you already are!”
Van Harden, Life in the Purple Wedge!
