Cast Spotlight: Meagan Cotten

by meghanmatt on March 27, 2017

I am so excited for our first cast spotlight for the 2017 finale season!! Meagan came in her sweet, soft way and rocked our world with a story of love and grace and overcoming. You are going to be touched by her words on May 7, but in the meantime, here’s a little more about her.

How did you hear about Listen to Your Mother? What made you decide to audition?

I heard about LTYM through a FB video post by Whitney Andrus, my friend:) The morning news ran a story about auditions and I thought I had a few good stories to tell—-so I signed up!

If you had to describe motherhood in three words, what would they be?

“glorious, transformative gift”

What’s your mommy super power?

Cuddling. Cuddling makes my kids’ tears go away, bellies feel better, and makes cold feet warm again (thank you, thighs).

What is something that you always tell your kids?

Well, a song. “It’s gonna be a great day, HEY HEY HEY, Jesus is our ________ today, HEY HEY HEY..” Fill in the blank with Master, Lord, King, friend, and some others. No matter how grumpy or tired they are in the mornings, if I break out this song they can’t resist singing it. Sometimes mumbling or grumbling it , their sweet little mouths always get those words out….it’s quite the ice breaker.

You’re having a dinner party. What do you serve, and why?

If I were hosting a dinner party, hands down I’m serving soup or stew or gumbo. Hot liquid-y goodness served in a bowl. I’d use fresh seasonal veggies and herbs, homemade stock, roasted garlic, and some heat (pepper heat), maybe some beans, maybe some meat. A stock pot on the stove is my canvas. I’m giving you love in bowl.

What was the best piece of advice your mother ever gave you?

Best piece of advice my mom, step-mom, ever gave me (showed me actually) was to share. Share your meals, share your time, share your abilities. Share with people.unnamed (2)
