The videos are here, Little Rock!

July 13, 2015

The 2015 Listen To Your Mother: Little Rock show was simply amazing. If you didn’t make it, great news! You can watch all the videos here! If you were there – great news for you too! You can revisit your favorites and share them with your friends. Telling our own stories and hearing each other’s is one of the most powerful things we can do. Stories help us feel less alone, discover new truths, and find common ground. Clear out some time to watch the whole playlist below; if a story strikes a chord with you, be sure to pass it along to others who would enjoy it too. And plan right now to join us at Listen To Your Mother next spring, either as a storyteller or an appreciative listener. You’ll be so glad you did!
