8/8/2018

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:...

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.

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:...
