Abel loves YouTube! And he loves it even more because it’s helping him with our kids. I on the other hand am very leery about how much YouTube is too much YouTube.

When does a joke go too far and offend the one we love?

8/8/2018
More
I married Abel for his heart and his amazing voice, NOT his jokes. Abel thinks he is a comedian and sometimes puts his foot in his mouth. I will admit my jokes sometimes get out of hand too. In an effort to try and make each other laugh we accidentally hurt each other which quickly escalates into a fight. Today we discuss healthy ways we have learned to joke with one another without offending. Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial Instagram: Rosie Rivera Oficial and Abelsworship Twitter:...

What is a good Christian?

8/2/2018
More
I often hear the words, “fake Christian” being thrown around. Unfortunately, many use the word of God to cut others rather than using it as a sword of faith. Who decided they can evaluate what a good or bad Christian is anyway? Those words aren’t even in the Bible and only our Lord can see the sincerity in our hearts. This week Abel discusses how my participation on the dance competition “Mira Quien Baila” helps me to glorify God. Join us on another thought provoking podcast. Facebook:...
