Hi I'm Jacob

I am an Arkansas boy, I attend BYU, and i'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a young man preparing to serve a mission in the West Indies-Trinidad and Tobago. The path to my mission has not been smooth, but with the Lord's help i have found my way to serving a full time mission worthily. I was born in Asheville, North Carolina, then i Moved to Ashdown, Arkansas where i lived for ten years. i have spent the last eight years in Payson, Utah. The main reason my family moved to Utah is because my older brother Robbie Buckner received a full ride scholarship to play football at Brigham Young University. I have lived a worldly life and through the mercy of our Lord and Savior i have been able to find my way back and feel true happiness once again.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i know this is Christ's church. I have been to other churches and lived worldly for a time, and i have always known in my heart that this church was true. It gives me the blessing of knowing my past, where i am going, and what my future can be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping the commandments, humbling myself before the Lord, and always willing to submit myself to him after i received my light. When i say i "received my light", i mean after i felt forgiveness and love from Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and knew that i needed to change my life. Ever since then, i have received my mission call and am preparing to live a long life dedicated to serving the Lord.
