Hi I'm Michael J. Wihl

I grew up in the Catholic faith and was even in the Seminary to be a Catholic priest...and now, I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a single, never married 47 yr old male who grew up and lived in this area my whole life. I entered the Seminary to be a Catholic Priest when I was 34 and only stayed for one year because it wasn't anything like I thought it would be. I then met up with the Missionaries when I was 45 and became baptized 6 months later. I have 3 dogs, enjoy golf, watching football and love going out to eat and to movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the community aspect and learning from different people every week.

How I live my faith

I try to remember what we heard in sacrament meeting and live that throughout the week. I try to put myself in other peoples shoes before I react to a situation. I also love listening and learning from Mormon Messages and the Book of Mormon when I can at work.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

I struggle with this aspect and I feel it is my biggest weakness. I am however making strides in correcting this by execerising more and getting more sleep. Show more Show less
