Hi I'm Zack Buck

I'm a memeber of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints also known as the Mormons.

About Me

I have lived in Utah all of my life. I grew up in Orem, Utah as the 5th of nine children. I have 3 older sisters and an older brother and one younger brother and 3 youngers sisters. I have an amazing beautiful wife, Denise. We have been married for 14 years and we have 5 children. A 12 year old daughter, sons that are 9, 7 & 4 and another daughter that is 18 months. I served a mission for the church in Brazil from July 1995 to July 1997. Denise and I went to Brazil 2 years ago and had a wonderful time seeing the great people I met on my mission and enjoying the beautiful beaches of northeast Brazil. I am a residential real estate appraiser for a credit union and I love my job. I enjoy spending time with my family camping, hunting, hiking, fishing and just having fun. I also enjoying playing basketball and golfing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I have a testimony of my Savior and His atonement. I grew up in the church but I have felt the Holy Ghost many times testifing to my heart and mind that Joseph Smith saw our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and that he was called as a prophet to restore the gospel of Jesus Christ to its fulness in these latter days. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and it is another Testament of Jesus Christ. I have seen peoples lives changed by accepting the gospel and living their lives according to the covenants they have made with their God. Most importantly I am a Mormon because of the joy the gospel of Jesus Christ brings into my life and I know that if I am faithful to the covenants I have made with my Heavenly Father that my family can be eternal.

How I live my faith

I try everyday to live the gospel of Jesus Christ by helping those around me. The gospel I feel is truly following the 2 greatest commandements of loving God and our neighbor as ourself. Christ was always serving and I try to follow His example.
