Hi I'm Gabriel E. Jolley

I am currently living in Southern California. I am a massage therapist and love helping people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I usually go by the name of Gabe instead of my given name of Gabriel because that is how my peers know me. I am a massage therapist here in Southern California and am married to my beautiful wife Christine. I am from Provo Utah and lived there most of my life. I moved to California and married my current spouse and have been working at building a private practice in massage therapy. I love bowling and hanging out with friends and the occaisional trips to Disneyland. I come from a good size family and am the oldest living child in my family. I served a mission for my Heavanly Father in the North Carolina Raleigh Mission and I feel that was a great experience where I could meet more of my brothers and sisters and share my knowledge of the gospel with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in a sacred volume of scripture called the Holy Bible and also another book of equal importance known as the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. I know there are many people out in the world that would mock me for what I believe and I have even endured persecution as a result of my belief in this book but not to the same degree that the Prophet Joseph Smith did. I wonder if I would have had the strength to endure what he did. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and this because the Holy Ghost has borne whitness to my heart that it is true. Because I know that, I know also that this church and Joseph Smith Jr. who was instramental in restoring our Saviors church back to the earth are true. I know that we are known as the Mormons but I am also a Latter Day Saint and am happy to be affiliated with the one and only true church on earth.

How I live my faith

I try to be an example to others and treat others in a way that I think my Savior would treat them whether they reciprocate that treatment or not. I love teaching children. One of my greatest joys in life is working with these celestial beings. They are so innocent and so loving and it is hard for me to not feel the Saviors love for them and for me when I am around them. I get the opportunity every month to visit with families that I get to home teach. This is an opportunity for me to serve and be a messenger for my Savior by feeding his sheep.
