What Matters Most To You?

What Matters Most To You?

We kicked off 2017 with INTENTION to declare our own desire to tell stories and create conversations that fit into a context of purpose. This month is dedicated to WHAT MATTERS MOST TO YOU? The stories to come cover the range of national, local, familial and personal answers to this important question.

At Mamalode we believe in diversity of experiences, and we believe in the universalities too. We understand the ebb and flow of contradicting desires (family, work, self) but we firmly believe that there is such a thing as truth.

What is YOUR truth?

At our deepest core is a light. A light that sets our compasses. A light that is both a beacon with which to be found and a searchlight with which to seek.

What is your light?

My stepfather always asks (me, my husband, my friends, his friends) “Who are you and what do you want?” and that question is really the bedrock of life, of how we choose to spend our time/money/energy. Who are you? What do you want?

If you can see it, show it. If you know it, share it. If you are seeking, bring us along.

What matters most to you?

Why? Because you matter to us.


Mamalode listens to you.WE want others to listen to you as well.
