Hi I'm Bryan Jolley

I'm a Mormon. I love my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints.

About Me

I am a proud father of eight children, 6 sons, and 2 daughters. My wonderful wife and I have been married for 32 years. Our family loves spending time together working hard and playing hard. Some of our most favorite time spent together is in Island Park Idaho hanging out at the cabin riding four wheelers, fishing, eating, and laughing! I am an avid mountain bike rider, four wheeler enthusiast, and love doing anything in the great outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I have received my own witness of the divinity of Jesus Christ and his restored gospel on the earth. Nothing else in this world brings me the peace and joy that being a member of Christ's church does. The emphasis of the Church on the eternal nature of the family continue to provide me with hope of a glorious eternity with my wife and children.

How I live my faith

The gospel provides the framework for my life and that of my family. I try to live a Christ like life and be an example for my wife and children. I love to serve others both in the church and my neighbors.

What is faith?

Bryan Jolley
Faith is "the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen" (Hebrews 11:1) In other words faith requires us to hope for something we have never seen. A good example of this would be the belief that Christ appeared on the American Continent shortly after his death. One has to read the account found in the Book of Mormon and then have faith to believe that Christ actually appeared and spent time with the inhabitants. It is a beautiful story that I encourage you to study. Show more Show less
