Hi I'm Tom Bateman

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was married in the Salt Lake Temple in 1976 and my wife and I have 5 wonderful kids and 3 tremendous grandchildren. I have worked in the engineering and construction industry all of my professional career. I am currently heavily involved in Government contracting and compliance. We have moved several times because of my work and even lived in Saudi Arabia for a time where our fourth child was born. My interests include cars, sports, travel and family history.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because a person I knew when I was younger asked me to listen to the missionaries. I wanted to date her, so I said I would. Once I heard their message and read the Book of Mormon, I knew it was true and wanted to become a member. A year later, that person and I were married for time and all eternity.

How I live my faith

Serving in the Church has always been something we have done. In the different places we have lived there have been many different and interesting opportunities for service. Our faith is an everyday influence and method of living, not just once a week.
