Hi I'm McKinsey Koch

I'm a music lover, an ice cream fanatic, a church missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a music lover. I enjoy listening to uplifting music and playing musical instruments. There is a power in sharing music and it can touch people in a way nothing else can. I am an ice cream fanatic. Ice cream is always appropriate for every occasion. There are no exceptions. At all. I am a church missionary. I have the opportunity every day to teach others about the love of God for them and to help others come closer to Jesus Christ. I love being a missionary and seeing others overcome trials through the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel of Christ brings me so much joy. Because of the knowledge that I have about the Savior and what he has done for me, I feel happy and have hope in the future. I am a Mormon because the truths of this gospel bring me peace and teach me of the Savior's great love for me and all of God's children.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary. I left my family, my friends, my education, and my homeland behind to serve as a missionary for the next year and a half in Berlin, Germany. I know that the opportunity to serve as a missionary will help me to grow so much and allow me to help many of the Lord's children. I feel really blessed to have this opportunity and I'm really excited about it! During my time in college I served on a Family History committee and taught Sunday School. Learning about how to do family history work was a cool experience for me and I have come to love it! I'm excited to be a missionary in Germany because many of my ancestors are from there and I will be able to do more of their work once I return home. Teaching Sunday School has also been an incredible experience. It's taught me a lot about preparing lessons and about how to share the truths that I know and love with those around me.
