The culmination of many months of hard work is here and it’s always a great feeling. THE 2016 #LTYM VIDEOS ARE LIVE!
There are stories from across the country, including our 3rd annual show here in Baltimore. We are so very proud of the show that we produced and the new “family” that we have gained again this year. When you have some time, please check out our show or one of the other 40 shows that took place across the US and Canada.
Remember the humanity and love that unites us, especially as you watch videos from people who don’t look like you, who don’t sound like you and who have life experiences they NEED to you hear.
We are forever grateful for the wonderful women who chose to share their stories with us and with the world.

After that, we 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.
One last super huge thank you to all our readers, attendees, family and friends who helped to make this show possible. And without our sponsors, Everclear Video Productions, Jen Snyder Photography, and Bodyguards Plus, we wouldn’t have survived through 3 seasons! If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to comment below or you can reach us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, we leave you with love and hugs!
Our 2016 Listen To Your Mother Baltimore show wrapped on Saturday, April 23, 2016 and I still don’t have the words to express exactly what that means. I’ve been stalling on writing this wrap-up post because it meant that I would actually have to acknowledge that this season is over. **insert sad face** Arlene and I believe in this project with all heart and soul.
In 2014 for our inaugural season, we were terrified that no-one would audition. They did! We were nervous that no-one would attend. We almost sold old! Oh those stories!! The cast from 2014 will always be our first “babies”. Then for 2015, we prayed that we wouldn’t have the “sophomore jinx”. Kind of like a one hit wonder? We weren’t! 2015 was another great show and we popped our collars a little at being able to match 2014.
A third year though? Could we do it again? And how would be able to love another new set of cast members? Arlene and I are both mothers to one child, both boys. I think we finally understand how parents with more than one child feel. LOL! Honestly, I’ve always been stumped because I’m in the one and done crew, but now I get it. You love each one with the same intensity but for different reasons. Ah ha! Lightbulb moment. We hoped, but we were worried that we couldn’t love a new cast the way we loved our first cast of 2014, but then the ladies of 2015 rolled in and our hearts expanded. Totally different experience and dynamic but the same love. Then we feared, geez, a whole new crew and yet here we are with our rock solid love for them.
Thanks to all that attended the show, family, friends, and strangers from near and far! And a special shout out and thank to my friend, and our amazing founder and National director, Ann Imig.
Show alumni from 2014 and 2015 came to support and the feelings of love, kinship, family and appreciation are real!
A few members of this years cast have shared their after show feelings. Man! Their words??? Check them out below. Stay tuned this summer for all of the videos from our show and all the shows across the country.
