The Matters That Matter™ | Molly Davis and Kristine Van Raden
Tuesday 8 pm and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 2 pm
We all know that our lives and daily choices are best governed by our most deeply held values and priorities. Yet there is much to distract even our best of intentions. There is no better time of the year than now to consider those things that matter the very most to you, and to then find new ways to live that are reflective of who you are and what you value.
Molly Davis & Kristine Van Raden are co-founders of Matters That Matter™.
Friendship, family, career, and life challenges have taught them about what truly
matters. Their mission is to inspire people to live according to their own deeply held values and priorities by bringing courage, contentment and grace to life. They are co-authors of the internationally published book, Letters to Our Daughters. Their beautiful book, featured on the Oprah Show, is a collection of letters from women to their daughters. It illustrates the common threads that connect us as human beings in the midst of our differences. They have inspired audiences across the country with their challenging, insightful and relevant message. They are currently working on a new book on friendship.
Their message will take you inside the story of their 35 year friendship, and reveal the steps of faith that led to the publication of their book, "Letters to Our Daughters." In that process, through meeting amazing women from around the world, Molly & Kristine learned so much about the matters that matter… those things that are the most important to all of us, regardless of who we are or where we are from. Their program illuminates the common threads that can connect us all as human beings, and underscores the importance of living according to that which is most important.

Courage: What does it mean to live with courage and how do we cultivate more of it?
Contentment: What is does it mean to be content, and how can we increase our
