About Sister Kohler

About Sister Kohler
My name is Rebekah. I grew up in West Valley City, Utah in a family of five. I love robins-egg blue, the Wasatch Mountains, music, camp fires, snow, I Love Lucy re-runs, and antiques.

The dealings and accounts of my scattered life as a young adult and time as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in the Arizona Mesa Mission and Temple Visitors' Center.

I have a testimony of the Savior, Jesus Christ. He is truly the Redeemer of the world. Through Him, we can find true happiness in this life and acquire everlasting joy in the life to come.

s i s t e r - h o o d

"Give me a young woman who has kept herself morally clean and has faithfully attended her Church meetings. Give me a young woman who has magnified her callings and has earned her Personal Progress award and stayed true to the For the Strength of Youth. Give me a young woman who is a seminary graduate and has a burning testimony of the Book of Mormon. Give me such a young woman and I will give you a young woman who can perform miracles for the Lord in the mission field and throughout her life."

Mesa Temple Visitors' Center Missionaries

I grew up in between two brothers and didn't have any sisters.
During high school and in college I tended to have more friends that were boys than girls. This was a scary thought for me when I started my mission papers! I wasn't used to being around a bunch of other girls, I really wanted to serve my Heavenly Father, but I knew that would mean having a companion that I may or may not get along with.

When I received my mission call to serve at the Mesa Temple Visitors' Center I was a little surprised and very nervous! Not only would I have a companion, but I would be surrounded with many other sister missionaries for 18 months.

What if I had to start wearing more make-up?
What if I felt judged?
What if they were all prettier than me?
What if I had to start liking pink?
What if we don't get a long?

As silly as those questions may sound, these and many other questions were running through my mind during the months before my mission. Boy, was I scared!


Hermanas Anderson and Lund - Sisters Kohler and Beach

It didn't take me too long to figure out that this is the exact place where I needed to be for the next 18 months.

When I stepped into the Mesa Temple Visitors' Center, I instantly became a part of a family. I was welcomed and had someone to talk to at every turn. I am so grateful to be a part of a wonderful group of 'stripling warrior' women. These sisters have become my everything, they are my family and my best friends, being with these sisters is like being home. I hardly go a day without thanking my Heavenly Father for being called to serve in the Arizona Mesa Mission, and the Visitors' Center.

"I love the WOMEN of the Church. I have seen their STRENGTH. I have seen their FAITH. They have something to give, and they're willing to give it."
