Hi I'm Steven Wheeler

I grew up in Wyoming in a small town called Star Valley. I love to fish and playing with my kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently working in the construction industry as an Engineer. I got my degree in Construction Managerment. For fun, I love to float down a river dangling a fly at the end of a line. The fish inhailing the fly and enticing the fish into the net. Since I was five, I wrestled. In high school, there came a time when I didn't want to wrestler anymore, like I was burned out. I knew that if I just held on for one more year, it would be worth it. Turns out, that year we took state as a team.

Why I am a Mormon

The summer before 8th grade, my brother had insisted on getting a horse that he could ride. He finally found one that was in his price range and so he made the purchase. The Friday night after the big purchase, we had all had the chance to ride the horse bare-back. What a thrill it was and we couldn't wait until the next day to put a saddle on the horse. The next morning, I was so excited to saddle up the horse and take it for a ride. Little did I know that my life would change that day. We didn't bother adjusting the stirups on the saddle which meant the only thing that I had to hold onto the was saddle horn. the horse started to buck and I was thrown off. I landed on the ground the same time that the horse's hoof came down on my face. I immediatly went into the fetal possision. I wasn't breathin or moving and was probably dead. Upon seeing my situation, my dad gave me a priesthood blessing. I started thashing around and my jaw was swelling shut. I was rushed to the hospital where I was then life-flighted to a larger hospital to be taken care of. I ended up having my jaw wire shut for a month. After i had learned about what had happened, I was very greatful for my dad that he had been given the priesthood. I know that it was through the power of the priesthood that I was healed. I know that God has restored His church back on the earth today through Joseph Smith and currently Thomas S Monson as our living prophet today. The Book of Mormom is another testament of Jesus Christ and goes hand in hand with the Bible. I know that I will be able to live with my family forever even after we die. I know The Church of jesus Christ of Later Day Saints is the only ture church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

There have been many opportunities to help out around the community and the neighborhood. Very often, there are people that move into the neighborhood that we help move into their homes/appartments. I must say, we have become pretty good movers.
