On today’s episode we want to celebrate the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month by encouraging you to share how your family immigrated to the US…with your kids, friends and loved ones… The idea is that by remembering the struggles and sacrifices that others and you have made to be where you are today, it will fill you with gratitude, pride and hope that there are even bigger Blessings to come in your life!  Janet shares her parent’s story of how they immigrated from Mexico to the US. It’s a beautiful and at times painful Love Story… From her mom being prohibited to marry her father in Mexico, to being disowned by her own dad, to her parents picking strawberries for 20 years here in California to them eventually becoming entrepreneurs… all of this has made Janet who she is today. Janet’s Parent’s Love conquered all…even la Migra…it’s a legit Telenovela of a Love Story that was rewarded with the American Dream.   Thank you for hanging out with us, Blessings!

Today's Episode is the last chapter of our story so far…our Move from NYC back home to Cali. It seemed that our move back home was going to be the beginning of the best part of the rest of our life…we had no idea we would be faced with the toughest two years of our marriage. You’ll find out how after the radio station that Edgar worked at in NYC was sold and we were left in limbo. God Blessed us with a new Job in LA one week before we had to move out of our NYC apartment due to our lease being up. Up until that moment, we didn’t know where we were going to live next.  It was definitely God’s will for us to be back in Los Angeles for many reasons which you will find out about and one of them was to test and strengthen our marriage, especially during the third trimester of our second baby’s difficult pregnancy where Janet felt like a single mother due to all the challenges we were facing.  But here we are stronger than ever, with more faith than ever and ready to continue sharing this journey with you!   Thank you for hanging out with us, Blessings!

Should they even be used in a relationship? We will also dive into our wedding day and you’ll find out why Edgar end up in tears y todo mocoso on our first honeymoon night!

I’m sure you’ve heard people, if not yourself say… we just fell out of love and that’s why our marriage ended. Can you fall back in love? @Heather_The_Therapist joined us on this Episode to find out the reasons why we fall out of love, how can you fall back in love and most importantly how can we prevent from falling out of love. This episode is inspired by a DM we got from one of our listeners who fell out of love with her husband, it’s been years since she fell out but wants to stay together for the kids. What’s interesting is that when we got the DM Edgar asked Janet if she had ever fallen out of love with him…she paused…then Edgar said don’t respond until we do this episode…so YOU will find out at the same time Edgar will.   Also you’re going to be shocked and LOL once you hear about the most insulting but hilarious text ever, that Edgar received this week.    Thank you for hanging out with us, Blessings!

What’s your legacy?  This episode is inspired by my dad’s Celebration of Life, a ceremony that we had this past weekend where we finally laid him to rest.

Thank you for the wonderful messages that you have sent us in regards to episode 6. The Day My Dad Went To Heaven. Never has it been more clear that your actions don’t just affect you... they have an exponential generational impact on others whether you’re being intentional about it or not… your influence impacts and you matter.

Her inspirational and emotional video has gone viral because she shared her story, her pain and her joy about the DACA program being saved by the Supreme Court. DACA protects her and nearly 800,000 other Dreamers from getting deported.  Emiliana, inspired us to launch the “We Are All Dreamers” Fundraising Campaign.
