Q&A with Elise Ivy

What are you looking forward to most?

The 2021 holiday season is swiftly approaching and the thing I’m looking most forward to is slowing down and enjoying quality time with my family. My favorite moments are when we’re all in the same room, after just having had a wonderful meal, watching my nieces open gifts.

Q&A with Monifa Days

Any holiday traditions?

Our holiday traditions revolve around food. Every Christmas, it’s all about staying in our holiday PJs all day and brunch! Chicken and waffles are a must-have for us!


What are you looking forward to most?

I’m most looking forward to hanging out with my family, watching holiday movies, lots of hot chocolate and whipped cream, and sugar cookies!

Q&A with Terri Conn

What are you looking forward to most?

What I’m looking forward to this holiday season is spending quality time with my family and meditating on the awe of the most important day of the year for us—the day Jesus Christ was born.

My parents made sure to cement special traditions in our home, and I’m enjoying passing on those traditions to my children. Things like getting to open up one special present on Christmas Eve, taking a little nap and then heading to church for a candlelit Midnight Mass, baking pecan pie with my dad (now grandpa), or driving around to look at all of the Christmas lights!
