What’s your favorite?

– Christmas food: Over the years my mom and grandmother have made Ritz crackers and peanut butter dipped in white chocolate and I LOVE THEM!
– Christmas tradition: Decorating with the family. There’s nothing better than turning on the Christmas jams, hanging lights and putting up the tree!
– Christmas carol: “What Child Is This?”
– Christmas album: I have so many favorites…But, today I’ve been listening to the old Carpenter’s Christmas Record and Mercy Me’s Christmas Sessions.
– Christmas movie: I’m definitely a kid at heart. So, I’m all into the old Christmas classics like, Rudolph and A Christmas Story.
What do you enjoy most about Christmas?
I love the feeling the season brings! I believe at this time of the year (more than any other time) people seem to be a bit more eager to open their hearts, to love a little more, care a little more, and embrace the fact that there is a Savior, born for us all…
Share one of your favorite Christmas memories.
One of my favorite Christmas memories would be the first Christmas with my daughter Madison. WOW! I had such an AMAZING time seeing Christmas through the eyes of a child again. It reminded me of being a kid, in awe of all the lights and presents, surrounded by the people I love the most! And, being able to share the story of Christ with her… To explain the real reason we celebrate that season, was bringing Christmas alive in me like never before!
Are you the type of person who likes to peek at your presents before Christmas morning, or do you hold out?
I’ve always tried to wait, even thought it DRIVES ME CRAZY!!! I eventually got really good at talking my parents into letting us open presents early!
What do you want for Christmas this year?
Well, I’d love a new laptop or better yet just a bunch of new clothes, shoes, etc… LOL! But, more than anything I would like for God to bless me and my family in our endeavors of carrying the gospel in the way that He has called us to!
What are you most looking forward to this Christmas?
Spending time with my wonderful family and amazing friends, and preparing for what God has for us in the NEW YEAR!
What are your plans for 2012?
I am making some major changes in the new year… As of January I will be transitioning into being on the road full-time and pursuing the dreams and vision that God has given me. We are going to be hitting the road touring, booking concerts, seminars, and speaking engagements.. looking for any opportunity to share what God has given us! More than anything, to build relationships with people across the globe and help them reach the vision that God has giving them for their lives!
