Chevrolet Spark

Listen to Your Mother shows are built on the kind of teamwork that makes dreams come true. Our producers and directors form city teams to support each other in the adventure of crafting a show, and these teams support each other and their casts while being mentored by LTYM’s national team. It’s beautiful and powerful to watch the journey from launch to curtain, especially since most of the women in our community are taking on challenges that are brand new to them. The result this year is our amazing 32-show season which is opening this weekend!

From early on in our expansion it’s been our tradition for team members to visit other shows when they can. Even in our busiest pre-show time, it’s thrilling to see other shows open and to cheer our community on from coast to coast. This week we touted our EPIC Chevrolet National Sponsorship announcement, but what I have to share with you now gets even more exciting…

Chevrolet is lending their fabulous cars to some of our local Director/Producers to #FindNewRoads so that they can travel to sister LTYM Shows.

Follow along with LTYM on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter beginning this Sunday April 27th as our Chicago team heads to the Milwaukee show! Local Chicago Co-Producers Tracey Becker and Melisa Wells, will share photos and tell the story of their own journey to the Milwaukee show as they #FindNewRoads with Chevrolet.

Keep up with Melisa on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. You can find Tracey, on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Or simply keep an eye on the #FindNewRoads hashtag!

Not much is better than a journey with a friend who supports you in finding new roads. We are so proud of the way that the Listen to Your Mother community empowers producer/director teams and casts to find new roads each year through non-stop teamwork and support. We are so grateful that our national sponsor Chevrolet is making this celebratory road trip possible, and we’re excited to follow along!

On Finding Yourself In The Beauty Of Motherhood

by Stephanie P. on April 22, 2014

“Now my breasts rather than pointing perkily toward the horizon instead seem to be searching for lost pennies on the ground.” Listen to this mom describe the body of a mother — from the hilariously funny parts to the poetic and beautiful curves that will leave you in awe and wonder.
