Description

The Power of Us is a podcast that discusses a variety of topics that relate to marriage, that ever-elusive topic that we all want to get right, but struggle to on a day-to-day basis. With Rosie Rivera Flores and her husband, Abel Flores, we delve into topics such as trust, communication, expectations just to name a few. With over half a million followers on social media, Rosie not only has something to say, she has people who want to listen. Abel adds a great male perspective as the husband of a strong-minded woman, but with his gentle strength, he has a lot to say and he isn’t always in agreement with his beloved wife. Sound familiar? You definitely won’t want to miss this entertaining and informative self help show.

Rejection in marriage
2967
One of the reasons I couldn’t wait to get married was because I didn’t want to have to deal with rejection from a love interest. Unfortunately, much to my disappointment I didn’t realize that rejection was still possible in my marriage. Abel and I have each had our cycles of rejection causing us to hurt each other. Join us on another candid episode as he and I discuss the pain of rejection and how we are working through it to find a solution.   Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial Instagram: Rosie Rivera Oficial and Abelsworship Twitter:    Soyrosierivera  Editor: Mariella Sagastume Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Mi tia Luisa en Mariposa de Barrio
2686
La serie de la vida de mi hermana, “Mariposa de Barrio,” a generado muchos comentarios de los fans, y parece que esta ves, el repudio no es solo para Trino sino para mi tía Luisa. Recientemente recibí un mensaje de un televidente que decía que mi tía era segunda solo a Yolanda Saldívar entre los personajes más odiados. Aunque yo le guardé mucho resentimiento por muchos años a mi tía, esta comparación me parece un poco extrema. En este episodio Abel y yo intentamos averiguar la razón por la que mi tía rehusó creer mis acusaciones de abuso y dónde nos encontramos ahora en nuestra relación de tía y sobrina.

Del Odio al Perdón
3687
Muchos me han expresado su odio por Trino Marin, el hombre que me violo, después de ver la dramatización de ese momento en mi vida en la serie “Mariposa de Barrio”. Abel y yo entendemos esos sentimientos. Nosotros hemos sentido lo mismo, pero con el tiempo hemos cambiado de parecer. Nos dimos cuenta, que guardar estos sentimientos no es saludable para nosotros ni para nuestra familia. Acompáñanos en este episodio donde Abel y yo hablamos de nuestra transición, y como logramos pasar del odio al perdón.

Kids are like sponges
2139
I love to eat a piece of cheese in the middle of the night while watching sports with the guys or sleeping past midnight every single night. These aren’t necessarily things I want to change about myself but I also wouldn’t want my kids to pick up these habits. Abel also has his own list of habits he doesn’t want the kids to inherit ,but kids are like sponges and they mimic what we do, even if we don’t want them to. Join us as we tackle another family dilemma, and discuss how we plan to address this situation and break this habit chain we are indirectly creating with our children. Hopefully it will allow us to keep the cheese but not pass it to the kids!  Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial Instagram: Rosie Rivera Oficial and Abelsworship Twitter:   Soyrosierivera  Editor: Mariella Sagastume Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

4360
If you have watched Mariposa de Barrio on Netflix, you have come to know my brother Juan and his wife Brenda’s love story. The question I get from everyone after watching the series is if Juan is still married to the same girl after the drugs and infidelity? Amazingly, the answer is yes, they are still married. Join Abel and I, on another candid episode as we talk to Juan and Brenda and ask the question that many are asking: how have you managed to overcome all the problems and still be together? It’s a true love story and a demonstration of commitment through thick and thin.  Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial Instagram: Rosie Rivera Oficial and Abelsworship

Unequally Yoked

Unequally yoked is a term we hear a lot in church when it comes to marriage. What does it truly mean?

Guys and Girls: Debunking the stereotypes
1913
We are living in the year 2020 and you would think stereotyping is a thing of the past. Worse yet, when it happens in your own home. Abel happens to think hanging frames is a “girl” thing. As usual, I disagreed with him. What makes hanging a frame a “girl thing”?  The reality is that anyone can hang a frame just like anyone can take out the trash. There is no such thing as a “guy” or girl thing. If that were the case, we wouldn’t have women doing space exploration or racing in the NASCAR. Join Abel and I as we have another one of our candid conversations and do a deep dive into what exactly are girl and guy duties when it comes to home.

The new coin word, Entanglement

Three words that have become popular in 2020 in our everyday conversation are Pandemic, Quarantine and now thanks to Jada Pinkett, Entanglement. In a recent Red Table episode, Jada invited her husband Will Smith to talk about their marriage issues. She used the word entanglement to refer to a relationship she had with another man while she was separated from him. Interestingly enough, Jada’s choice of words has caused some discussion in the Flores household. Did Jada cheat or betray Will Smith? Join us as we talk about this on our latest episode and as you might imagine, Abel and I disagreed completely.  Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial Instagram: Rosie Rivera Oficial and Abelsworship Twitter:    Soyrosierivera  Editor: Mariella Sagastume Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Don’t worry and stress be happy
2032
Stress is a killer to our bodies, it will make you gain weight, loss hair and sleep to name a few.

Christmas is a wonderful time of year, but how much should you explain to your children?

Passwords: The key to trust
2332
Knowing your spouse’s password can be a double edged sword. It gives you a silent power and access to your significant others private information, but it can also divide and cause friction when this power is abused. In our marriage, Abel and I have each other’s passwords. We have nothing to hide from one another, however, at one point in our relationship I was obsessed with checking Abel’s accounts. I found myself exhausted and he felt attacked. As the years have passed our relationship has matured. We still have each other’s passwords but our goal is not to need them. Join us as we share how we struggled with this dilemma and were able to overcome this challenge of trust.

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?

Getting your child to accept your new relationship
1907
With the ever-increasing numbers in divorce there is also an increase in blended families. When Abel and I got married, my eldest daughter was 8 years old. She was upset with the marriage because she wanted her parents back together. How do you deal with your childs rejection of your new relationship? Abel fortunately understood my daughter. He himself had come from a single parent home and could relate with what she was going through. As the years have passed we have managed to develop a healthy family relationship, but through the process there was a lot of work, effort and tears. Join us as Abel as he describes what he did to win over my daughter in an effort that was truly a labor of love. If you are going through something similar, you won’t want to miss this episode.  Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial Instagram: Rosie Rivera Oficial and Abelsworship Twitter:    Soyrosierivera  Editor: Mariella Sagastume Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-power-of-us/id1342297320 Google Play Music: https://play.google.com/music/m/Iguzw5mn2gkeh7qcdgl65xv6joe?t=The_Power_of_Us Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3WXQEfrvlW90Ilc4mGEByI?si=3HyGvdcySIK2OSG3gxiZog iHeart App: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/the-power-of-us-28917504// Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Dealing with sexual abuse as a couple.
1881
Sexual abuse has been the biggest challenge of my life but Abel was willing to still commit and marry me. He never could have imagined the challenges he’d face being married to a sexual assault survivor, however, he made the conscious decision to love me through it. In our journey we learned that he couldn’t fix me nor should he fix me. Without a doubt, Abel has been an essential part of my healing process. Join Abel and I as we talk openly about this subject and how we deal with it. If you have been abused or know someone that has you won’t want to miss this difficult but candid conversation.

Age is more than a number
1900
When I first told my sister that I liked Abel she said I was ridiculous, not because he was a bad guy but because he was 10 years younger than I. Everyone disagreed with our relationship yet we continued full force. Although I didn’t agree with my family and friends when I was dating Abel, I now have come to understand how such a major age difference can add complications to a relationship. In today’s episode Abel and I open up on how our age difference has affected our marriage and hope to enlighten our listeners who might be dealing with the same issue.   Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial Instagram: Rosie Rivera Oficial and Abelsworship Twitter:    Soyrosierivera  Editor: Mariella Sagastume Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-power-of-us/id1342297320 Google Play Music: https://play.google.com/music/m/Iguzw5mn2gkeh7qcdgl65xv6joe?t=The_Power_of_Us Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3WXQEfrvlW90Ilc4mGEByI?si=3HyGvdcySIK2OSG3gxiZog iHeart App: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/the-power-of-us-28917504// Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Family Matters
2096
My father Don Pedro Rivera engraved in my heart that “family is the only thing you have at the end of the day”, and I agree with him. I firmly believe that I have nothing without my family. Once married to Abel, I couldn’t leave my strong family ties behind. Should I have to? Couldn’t Abel be an extension of my Rivera family? I couldn’t find the balance between extended family and my nuclear family because I didn’t automatically make the switch on my wedding day. In this episode, Abel and I open up about our family issues, and how we work every day on finding that happy balance and how we set priorities when it comes to our extended family.   Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial Instagram: Rosie Rivera Oficial and Abelsworship Twitter:    Soyrosierivera  Editor: Mariella Sagastume Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-power-of-us/id1342297320 Google Play Music: https://play.google.com/music/m/Iguzw5mn2gkeh7qcdgl65xv6joe?t=The_Power_of_Us Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3WXQEfrvlW90Ilc4mGEByI?si=3HyGvdcySIK2OSG3gxiZog iHeart App: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/the-power-of-us-28917504// Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

What do you do when your spouse cheats on you? Do you forgive and move on? Do you stay for the kids? Abel and I get these questions all the time when we are speaking about marriage.

A heart felt conversation with my mother
3670
In honor of Mother’s Day, Abel and I sat down and had a candid conversation with my mother Rosa Amelia Rivera Saavedra. My mother spoke of her life with my father and her decision to divorce him after 42 years of marriage. Although this episode was one of the most emotional ones yet by far it has been one of my favorites because we got to sit and talk to a woman that I admire and respect tremendously. My mother opens her heart and explains how a woman knows when it’s time to ask for a divorce. When enough is enough. En honor al Día de las Madres, Abel y yo nos sentamos en una candida plática con mi madre, Rosa Amelia Rivera Saavedra. Hablando de su vida con mi padre y su decisión de divorciarse después de un matrimonio de 42 años. Este programa ha sido uno de los episodios mas emotivos y dificiles pero a la misma ves uno de mis favoritos, porque nos sentamos a conversar con una mujer que admiro y respeto mucho. Hoy ella explica como una mujer sabe cuando es hora de pedir el divorcio.  Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial Instagram: Rosie Rivera Oficial and Abelsworship Twitter:   Soyrosierivera  Editor: Mariella Sagastume Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-power-of-us/id1342297320 Google Play Music: https://play.google.com/music/m/Iguzw5mn2gkeh7qcdgl65xv6joe?t=The_Power_of_Us Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3WXQEfrvlW90Ilc4mGEByI?si=3HyGvdcySIK2OSG3gxiZog iHeart App: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/the-power-of-us-28917504// Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Quitting on Marriage
2249
Abel and I believe all relationships go through tough moments and that you can’t quit as soon as it gets hard. In this episode we speak to a very candid friend “Maria” who realized that in her third try at marriage her husband was not the issue. She came to the realization that she was the one that was quitting on the marriage in each attempt. She liked getting married but didn’t like dealing with the issues that came with it and quickly would give up on it and quit. Join us as we hear Maria’s story and how she decided to turn things around with her marriage, deciding to stay and deal with her personal issues by getting help.  Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial

Living in Purity
2584
Is living in purity in today’s age possible? Most would think it’s not possible. Abel and I disagree. We believe in purity 100% before and during marriage. Today we debate with our guests, hosts of their own podcast “The BS Life”, Vic and Eddie, two men with opposing views regarding purity and virginity. Eddie is a proud virgin and Vic thinks he’s wasting his life away by saving himself for marriage.  Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial Instagram: Rosie Rivera Oficial and Abelsworship Twitter:   Soyrosierivera  Editor: Mariella Sagastume Engineer: Cesar Haliwa Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-power-of-us/id1342297320 Google Play Music: https://play.google.com/music/m/Iguzw5mn2gkeh7qcdgl65xv6joe?t=The_Power_of_Us Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3WXQEfrvlW90Ilc4mGEByI?si=3HyGvdcySIK2OSG3gxiZog iHeart App: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/the-power-of-us-28917504/ Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Husband & Wives Flipping Roles & Karina Moreno

It seems that the roles for men and women have flipped for many families since the MAN-cession of 2008.

We discuss the roles of men and women in relationships with Mexican singer songwriter Karina Moreno who is open about her relationship experience after facing struggles in her marriage. She explains her thoughts on men being the leader and women being the multiplier.  Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial

Having strict standards in your relationship.
1776
Before we get involved with someone we usually have already created our own standards of what we expect from our significant other. Are these standards realistic, are they too strict? Do they reflect our self-esteem? Abel and I have a friend who has been single for over 10 years. He has had one serious girlfriend but has never met a girl he thought he could marry despite dreaming of the big day. Is it that his standards are to strict? Join Abel and I as we discuss the importance of standards and how you should determine which ones are non-negotiable and which ones you need to be flexible with or you might end up alone and without a partner.   Facebook: Rosie Rivera Oficial Instagram: Rosie Rivera Oficial and Abelsworship Twitter:      Soyrosierivera  Editor: Mariella Sagastume Engineer: Cesar Haliwa Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-power-of-us/id1342297320 Google Play Music: https://play.google.com/music/m/Iguzw5mn2gkeh7qcdgl65xv6joe?t=The_Power_of_Us Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3WXQEfrvlW90Ilc4mGEByI?si=3HyGvdcySIK2OSG3gxiZog iHeart App: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/the-power-of-us-28917504/ Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com
