Hi I'm Dr. Trish Isabella

I'm a mother of two creative children and married to an artist. I'm teacher, a writer, and crafty person. I'm a Latter-day Saint.

About Me

I am all about family! My husband, an illustrator, and I have been married for 20 years. We have a handsome sixteen-year-old son and a beautiful fourteen-year-old daughter. I come from a family of seven children; my mum is amazing. I am a teacher for BYU-Idaho and Community College of Vermont. I earned a PhD in education. When not teaching, I am a writer and reader. I serve at church in any way I can to bring others the same happiness that is in my life. My family includes three deaf Dalmatians that rescued me. They bring much joy into our lives. We love to read, write, create art and crafty things, spend time with family and friends, swim, go to the beach, go on theme park rides, visit the zoo, learn about other cultures, and eat Mexican and Asian food.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Latter Day Saint because Jesus Christ makes it possible for families to be eternally sealed together. That is what prompted me to listen to the missionaries who taught me of the Savior's unconditional gift of the atonement. The Spirit guides my life, and I love serving in the Lord's temple. I have faith that Jesus Christ lives and loves me. I know that Heavenly Father is mindful of our triumphs and our struggles. This life is a blessing each and every day. I desire and look forward to spending eternity with my family.

How I live my faith

While I have served in a variety of areas of the ward, my favorite callings are those dealing with teaching. My favorite calling is with the youth, especially with the YW. Personal Progress is an inspired program. I started my membership teaching precious little children in nursery and primary. Those sweet children taught me the love of our Savior is tender. I taught Sunday school to adults, which I absolutely loved. I love teaching Relief Society. I live my faith all week long. I am an online instructor for BYU-Idaho, which is an amazing blessing in my life. I am able to let my spirit shine forth with the pure love of Christ, which is charity. I love learning and teaching in this diverse world. I believe in loving others by learning their cultures and celebrating the beauty within them.
