Hi I'm Delia Parentela Cabrera
I'm originally from the Philippines. I have a story to tell...my life, my conversion, my trials and my testimonies.
I'm a mother of three and a grandmother of six. I was a vocal teacher for over 25 years. Music has been a love of my life - I started performing at an early age and continued on to perform with my own children. I also love to write, read, go to the temple and work out at the gym. I have gone through so many trials in my life that made me who I am today. If you want to know more of me, please visit my blog. My writings will hopefully inspire and make you smile.
Why I am a Mormon
I am so blessed to have found the church. The gospel brings real joy in my life. When I was Catholic, many questions remained unanswered. The first thing that made me curious in finding out more about being a Mormon was seeing a family prayed. All I knew was the recited prayers like Our Father, Hail Mary, etc. I realize now that it was the Holy Ghost that moved me deeply upon hearing them pray. This way of praying led the missionaries to my door. The very same way, helped me be close to my Father in Heaven who always hear my sincere pleadings. The knowledge of the true gospel of Jesus Christ gives me hope when things seem beyond repair and there's no one to turn to. What greater hope is there when I know where I came from, why I'm here and where I'm going. I challenge you to find out for yourself if these things are true like I did. You will know as the Spirit testifies to you like He did to me. Now, as I continue to follow the commandments, tremendous blessings are constant in my life. With my Ward family, I feel the love of my Savior as each one tries to emulate Him through service, kindness and sincere love for one another. This family closeness and fellowship is the same where ever I go. It's because this church is true and Jesus, our Savior is its head. We are led by a living prophet today as it was in the olden days because our Heavenly Father has never ceased loving His children. I have never felt His love this way before I was a Mormon. I have never been this happy and I wish everyone in the entire world would experience the same. I am eternally grateful to be a Mormon.
How I live my faith
I have always called to serve in a position that has something to do with Music. I am now a Music Leader for the organization for children under the age of 12. I teach them the gospel through songs. I try to motivate them to sing and learn to love good music. It is a very rewarding job.
