Thank You Baltimore!

by taya on May 7, 2014

The inaugural Listen To Your Mother Baltimore show took place on Saturday, April 26, 2014 and it was a success.  A smashing success!!

I don’t yet have all the words to describe all the feelings that have hit us since last Saturday.   Arlene and I must give heartfelt thanks to our cast. They shared their truth with us at auditions, opened themselves again during rehearsal and then bravely stood in front of a packed auditorium to give of themselves again.  We are so honored that we got to know these 16 women.

To all that attended our show, you warmed our hearts.  We mounted a Herculean task in a city where many nay-sayers said we couldn’t make it happen.  But, 600+ people proved those detractors wrong.  Gratitude to our amazing sponsors, Everclear Video Productions, Bodyguard Plus, Inc, Photography by Jenni, DJ Miss Tiff Entertainment, The Laffin Afro, and the Stoop Storytelling Series.  Thank you for believing in us!

Our charity partner, House of Ruth Maryland, has been a pleasure to work with. Their mission to help women in the state of Maryland is one that we respect and applaud. We can’t wait to tell them, and everyone, just how much of a donation we will be making to their programs!!

And last, but definitely not least, thank you to our family and friends for their unwavering support, passion and energy as we tackled this project. Knowing that your team, named and unnamed, is there to handle whatever might cross your path is a feeling that not everyone knows but it is magical and remarkable.  We’ll be soon with a recap of the show, donation totals and information about the videos from this year’s show, as well as info for next year’s show!

Meet Our Cast: Laurie White

April 24, 2014

LTYM: Who IS Laurie? Laurie: I’m a left-handed, right-brained writer, editor, and occasionally profane storyteller who talks way too fast, because my mouth is always ten steps ahead of my brain. Or something. I love photography, flat-faced dogs, babies, the beach, concerts, and cooking when I don’t have to clean up. I’m more socially awkward than I act, and less of an extrovert than I appear. I dislike lying, littering, spitting, and overhearing your loud cell phone conversation. I’ve been a teacher for a long time. I was born in Maryland, left for awhile, talk about leaving all the time, but it’s home and I love it here. Music is very important to me. I frequently make people laugh on purpose and accidentally, and that’s probably my favorite thing in life. I love my family and friends more than anything else. Nothing else matters as much. I’m always trying to do and be […]

Welcome Local Sponsor – Bodyguard PLUS, Inc.

April 22, 2014

As the daughter of a police officer, I’ve always had a healthy respect and reverence for members of law enforcement.  Within my family, many members have served in law enforcement and the armed forces.  The efforts and sacrifices that those on the front lines make on behalf of the greater good are often taken for granted.  The Listen To Your Mother  Baltimore team does no such thing and we are so very happy to have Bodyguard PLUS, Inc. as a local sponsor of our show.  Mr. Henri Burris Sr. has been a trusted friend of Arlene and I for many years. Henri has been providing security services for over 25 years. He is a family man and successful businessman.  Henri served almost 23 years with Baltimore Police Department as an officer and a Detective.  As a detective he worked as a burglary and larceny investigator for over 4 years and was part of […]

Meet Our Cast: Jen Snyder

April 18, 2014

LTYM: Who IS Jen? Jen: I am sentimental, I am quirky, and I am always looking for those idyllic moments in life with my kids. You know– those times when you just breathe it all in and everything feels perfect. I live in Harford County, MD and I’m a mother to 3 crazy kids– 6, 4, and the baby will be 1 in May.  I’m also a family photographer, and my passion is helping Moms see the unconditional love their children have for them. My hair has a pink streak and I swear to you it’s natural–that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I’m equal parts scifi nerd and gym rat. I own way too many flavored coffee syrups. Really, it’s like a mini Starbucks in my kitchen. LTYM: How did you discover LTYM? Jen: It was a late-night nursing session gone wrong! Ha! The baby was having a bad streak of […]
