One of the greatest privileges of making music is having the possibility to share our experience and being a blessing to others who might be struggling with the same issues we did. This is exactly the reason why we made this video sharing with the Spanish speakers our own experience. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do and we pray God will use it for His glory.
As some of you may already know, both of us came to know Christ after about 3 years of marriage. Long story short, we desperately needed someone to take control over our lives and to teach us how to truly love each other.
We let Christ be the one who determined how to live our lives and lead our marriage and family, and the rest is history. It hasn’t been easy, but our marriage and family have been transformed ever since.
Ten Tu Lugar
This song called “Ten Tu Lugar” (“Come Take Your Place” in Spanish) is the result of our own experience. After one of those countless arguments (even after being Christians) in the midst of the storm, I was praying and expressing to God my frustration for making the same mistakes over and over.
I realized that the same feeling which drew us to the Gospel (the need for God to take control of our lives) was what we needed to do in order to improve our marriage, as well. Then, I grabbed my guitar and started putting chords and notes to this idea.
It’s been more than 7 years since the day we sang it for the first time and we’ve never been more convinced that the only way to a successful Christian marriage is to let Christ be the center of it and humbly tell Him: “Come Take Your Place”.
Therefore, without further ado, one of our most intimate songs: “Ten Tu Lugar”

Here’s the translation of the lyrics (in case you want to see what we are singing in Spanish):
Come Take Your Place
What is wrong? What’s going on with us?
How could we let ourselves come this far, again?
We messed up, we let it get away…
No joy, no peace, no faith
It’s time to clear the way
Come take Your place.
Come take your place and lead the way
Come take your place,
restore the broken hearts, we pray.
Come take your place,
Come take your place and guide us all the way.
Jesus Christ, come take Your place.
Oh, Lord, you are Good
My stronghold in trouble
You know me, my soul will trust in Thee.
What is your life experience? Is there any song that express what you have been through?
