Just a couple months ago Listen To Your Mother gave motherhood a microphone in 39 citiesover 450 stories shared in 2015. 

The videos of these stories are now LIVE!

“Will she know me?” At LTYM: Nashville 2015, Co-Director Carrie Weir shared her journey in finding the balance of raising her daughter Maria to know her family’s roots as well as the ones she will grow on her own. “So when I open my heart to release her to her own stories, I do so knowing that Maria gets to create her own version of me.”

The only thing missing is my Mom who passed away a few years ago..but she was with me in spirit Thank you Ann!!! For giving me a place to feel free and safe to tell my story of being the mother of a son in prison. Being a mother is tough enough but so many out there judge us by what our children do and WE judge ourselves sometimes. My son taught me how much I was a good mother after he was incarcerated by making sure I didn’t blame myself. Thank you SO MUCH Jennifer and Elaine for putting Southeast Texas on the map for us!!

Donna, it’s because of people like you that LTYM has grown into what it is today. The way you feel right now? YOU are going to give that feeling to other folks going through something similar by the brave and generous act of sharing your story. Thank YOU.

I have jumped all weekend, laughing, crying, both!
I just can’t get over the amount of pride I have for every single show. Every single story.

Thank you Ann for giving us this opportunity. xo
