Hi I'm Isabella Bowers

I'm from New Jersey. I'm a student at Rice University. I'll be serving a full-time mission in New York. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! My name is Isabella, and I was born in Germany, raised in New Jersey, currently live in California, and attend school at Rice University in Houston, Texas. Some of my favorite things to do are sleep, eat, and listen to music in different languages from all over the world. In particular, I love to listen to Korean and Chinese music, though I also occasionally listen to music in Spanish. I know a bit of Spanish, and I teach myself Japanese for fun in my free time. I am the youngest of four children and am blessed with goodly parents who have raised me in the gospel of Jesus Christ and always taught me to choose the right. I have recently been called to serve as a full-time missionary and will be heading to the New York New York North Mission, Spanish-speaking. I feel so grateful and humbled to have this opportunity to serve my Heavenly Father as a full-time missionary!

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel with all my heart— this Church has blessed me in countless ways. Through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have learned to recognize the hand of God in my life, I have learned that it is possible to have a relationship with my Father in Heaven and Savior, Jesus Christ, and I have learned how to receive answers to my questions and prayers. It truly is God`s restored Church on the earth!

How I live my faith

I love working with the missionaries wherever I live. During my first year of college, I was called to serve as a ward missionary. I loved working with the full-time missionaries and helping them invite others to Christ.
