We are so excited to bring to you the final season of Listen To Your Mother in Austin and across North America! The Austin show will wrap up with seven years of beautiful, hilarious, tear-jerking, amazing stories from women and men from the Austin area on Saturday, April 29 at 3 PM CST. We’re thrilled to be finishing our run at the place where it all started: the AT&T Executive Education and Conference center.

This year, LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER gave motherhood a microphone in 41 cities — over 500 stories told, with thousands of live-listeners in audiences across the U.S. and Canada.

Kristin and I, along with LTYM directors and producers across the country, are thrilled to invite you to experience our extraordinary season featuring powerful voices that capture all facets of contemporary parenting (as well as stories about our own upbringing) including very timely personal narratives given the recent events in Orlando, Baton Rouge, Shaker Heights, and Dallas. On the Listen To Your Mother YouTube channel we feature a variety of playlists by topic, and for 2016 we’ve added two new playlists–one with stories about race, and another with stories from LGBTQ families.

Austin, we did it! …and just like that, we see our 6th season in Austin in the rear-view mirror, and we’re heading toward summer (yay! noooo!). We are extremely proud of our cast, these brave men and women who got up on stage at the AT&T Center and shared their truth. As we do, we laughed, we cried, we nodded our heads in solidarity. Every single story made an impact, and it was our honor to host it.     To our 2016 cast, we love you. Thank you for everything. You have done something really special, and we can’t wait to see the videos on YouTube this summer. To our inspiring and amazing National Director Ann Imig and the Listen to Your Mother national team, thank you for your continued support as Austin proudly carries on this annual tradition. To our generous and kind sponsors, your support means the world to us: Smith Wealth Advisors […]

We want to welcome a first-year Megaphone sponsor to the Austin team: Smith Wealth Advisors! Our local sponsors are celebrated and loved by our whole team; they are critical to our success. I met Coach Ron Smith when he coached my son’s baseball team a few seasons ago, and his family and mine are now intertwined. He has launched his own business after two decades as a financial advisor with a large firm, and he is already doing great things. Smith Wealth Advisors was established as a platform for providing every one of their clients with the kind of personal service one expects from a large wealth management firm. For over 20 years, Ron  has advised clients on every aspect of their financial management with the goal of guiding them towards achieving their financial goals and ultimately, living the future they intended. Ron will only agree to work with a couple if both partners are […]

LOCAL SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT: Special Addition Maternity and Nursing Boutique

April 19, 2016

As a locally-produced event, Listen to Your Mother Austin’s local sponsors are truly key in helping us make our show a success. This year Special Addition Maternity and Nursing Boutique is joining us for the third year in a row as a local sponsor! Special Addition is a true local business, run by husband and wife team Herb and Mur Anne Lawson. I met the Lawsons years ago, in my past life as a credit union employee, and I enjoyed getting to know them and their business during my years there. When I became pregnant with my twins, I found that among the other mothers of multiples, Special Addition was the most recommended shop for all things maternity and nursing. Special Addition opened in 1994, and has become Austin’s go-to shop for maternity, nursing, and baby gear. Their 3000 square foot space on Burnet Road holds nursery furniture, maternity apparel and gear (I would not have […]
