Relentlessly Resilient

Cohost Conversation: Embracing the non-traditional Christmas

While the holidays bring joy, traditions, gifts, and more, they are also a costly time of stress. In this Christmas edition of Relentlessly Resilient, hosts Jennie Taylor and Michelle Scharf discuss the ups-and-downs of tackling the holiday as a non-traditional woman. Producer KellieAnn Halvorsen joins for a portion of the show to talk about embracing the holiday season as a “forever single” adult through service and finding things to be joyful about. They remind listeners to take time to take care of themselves this holiday, slow down to enjoy the moments, and seek ways to serve others without too much self-criticism. Merry Christmas! 

Even though we live in challenging times we can become Relentlessly Resilient as we lean on and learn from one another’s experiences. Hosts Jennie Taylor and Michelle Scharf are no strangers to overcoming adversity; Michelle lost her husband to cancer, while Jennie’s husband Major Brent Taylor was killed in the service of our country. Their stories bond them together and now listeners can join them weekly as they visit with others enduring challenges and who teach us how they are exercising resiliency, finding value in their grief, and purpose in moving forward.
