Hi I'm Seth Kohler

I grew up in West Valley City, Utah. I am going to serve a mission in the Accra, Ghana mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I swam and played water polo in high school and loved it. I love to do many outdoor recreational activities with friends and family. My siblings have been a great example of what to do and what to be. I love to serve others as often as I can even though it can get really hard. I found my true testimony in my Senior year of high school and have tried to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ the best I can. I am going to serve a mission in the Accra, Ghana mission. I am so excited to share the Gospel and my testimony of what I have found for myself to be true.

Why I am a Mormon

I have had faith that what I was learning and had learned in church was true, but I always had a small layer of not really doubt but probably a leap of faith to put my trust in my Savior and Heavenly Father and to follow them unceasingly. I had small falling away times in my life and very strong humble experiences turning back to the Lord. I knew that I was not being obedient at times but when I would straighten my life I knew God would forgive me and to continue to help me. I finally have had a leap of faith that has brought me to know Heavenly Father lives and his son Jesus Christ gave his life for us so we could have the Atonement to bring us back to live with our Heavenly Father again. I believe that all of us need to take a leap of faith because if we do not put faith in Jesus Christ to know that he lives and we can receive a remission of our sins then we will not have the Spirit testify to us of what is true. We need to put effort in to receive truth. We need that desire to be searching for the Gospel. I know that the Atonement is real, it has worked in my life and brought so much happiness and peace. I know my Savior died for me and everyone and lives again. I know my Heavenly Father is real and loves me. I know this Gospel which is Gods Gospel is true and has been restored to the earth by the prophet Joseph Smith. I know these things to be true in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

The best way I help myself live my faith is by going with the missionaries of the ward to their investigators and inactive members that they teach. It has been such an amazing blessing to meet so many people that live close to me that I come to love because I want the best for them. I have seen so many neighbors grow and having their hearts turn towards the Savior as I have. I love missionary work because everyone deserves to add happiness to their lives by hearing the Restored Gospel and feeling the love from their Heavenly Father and brother Jesus Christ.
