A local host will direct the hour giving it the feeling of a live, local talk show, with an inspirational twist. 

 

Topics will change weekly, focusing on popular life issues. The documentary style films feature everyday people with unusual stories, as well as nationally known figures. 

 

Lifetree Café is for adults of all ages and serves as a comfortable place to meet other people who are interested in similar issues. The atmosphere will resemble a warm neighborhood coffee shop. The experience gives people practical help and insight on life issues, and provides a hopeful spiritual connection.
