Hi I'm Chaz Bateman

I'm a snowboarder & longboarder, an athlete, a go getter, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have grown up the oldest of 4 boys, living in a single-parent home. I love to have fun and laugh. Tearing up the streets or the mountain on my board in what keeps me sane. I have a sticker obsession, and i like to draw up graffiti art. I am outdoors adrenaline lover, aspiring photographer, and dream of someday achieving my life long goals of a profession in these fields. I have a love for positive music in hardcore, alternative, indie, as well as others. As i grew up in the small town of Tremonton, I learned how to work hard as well as many other life lessons. My family is my friends and my friends are my family! And they mean the most to me in this world!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, often times attending on my own. I have always had a love for this church and for Jesus Christ. In high school, i never really recognized how important his role was in my life, until after messing up a few times, i found what i needed most. And that was the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through this, i have recognized and partaken from the gift of the Atonement and the power behind it. I have read, pondered, and prayed about the Book of Mormon, and found it to be the truest book ever given to mankind, which means i know Joseph Smith to be a Prophet called of God to restore Christ's church and authority to this earth again. I'm so very grateful to have a Prophet here on this earth today, in Thomas S. Monson! Through revelation through Prophets, i know that i can someday return to live with my Father in Heaven again pure happiness, with my family, forever. My heart is full as i know that this Church and this gospel is for me, and is for everybody!

How I live my faith

I serve! I have consecrated and am sacrificing two years of my young life to share the Gospel, and bring others unto Christ! As i have found much joy and comfort in this, i want others to experience why they are here, and where they are going, as i have! I strive to live worthily of the Priesthood (the restored power and authority to act in the name of God), which i hold, to perform miracles and bring blessing unto others as i stand as a representative of Jesus Christ! And bring light to overcome darknesss, because it always will! I do my very best to live by example. To comfort, help, share, serve, befriend, and love. I'm a Mormon, and i live it, and love it!
