The Family Business with The Alessis

Let's face it... Family is everybody's business! That's why Steve and Mary Alessi, who lead a multi-cultural, family-focused church in Miami alongside their 4 young-adult children, are pulling back the covers on how their family keeps it all together - not only in their business as pastors, but in the every day challenges that we all face. Each episode features real-life stories, principles, strategies and advice on marriage, parenting, employment and work-life, living as Christians in turbulent times and much more. Listen, laugh and learn as this close-knit family digs into the stuff that they can't always share on Sundays.
