Wow! Thank you, Austin!

Wow, Austin! To say we are still reeling from our shows Thursday night and Saturday afternoon would be an understatement. The magic in the auditorium was palpable, and the laughter and tears were flowing as our cast read each of their stories. Audience members left with smiles and warm hearts and lots and lots of tissues in their pockets.   “I’m going to make this a Mother’s Day tradition. Seeing this will make me a better parent.” “Thank you for helping me feel like I’m not alone…” “The show wasn’t just a testament to motherhood, it was a show about humanity.”   We are so filled with gratitude towards everyone who helped make this show possible.

Listen to Your Mother Austin just wouldn’t be the same without our local sponsors. And it speaks volumes about the project when a local business comes back to sponsor another year!

For Molly, being a realtor is all about helping people, and she couldn’t think of a better place to do that than here in Austin.

We’ve shared a little about 10 of each of our cast members so far, and now we’re on to the final 5! It’s my honor to give you, with no further ado:   Kim Borchert Kim is the busy Mama to 6 children; 5 on earth and 1 in heaven. She and her husband moved to Austin from Utah 3 years ago and don’t miss winter a bit! Kim is passionate about home birth, cloth diapering, baby wearing, and breastfeeding. She has been known to have conversations with perfect strangers in the grocery store about these very topics! Kim has always had a love affair with words and after years and years of filling journals, she found the blogosphere in 2006. Her blog, Prairie Mama, is her little space to spill her thoughts about motherhood, grief, love, loss, and the perplexities of why her children don’t sleep.   Margaret Smith Chicago native, stand […]
