Thank you Little Rock!

by Sarabeth Jones on May 27, 2016

2016 was a fabulous year for Listen To Your Mother in Little Rock. Each year we learn a little more, and relax a little more – just like we do with our own kids. On April 28, we settled in with anticipation…

A big hand to our local sponsors!

by Sarabeth Jones on May 20, 2016

LTYM sponsor-2We had a fabulous Listen To Your Mother show in Little Rock this year, and are so proud of the brave women (and man!) who shared their beautiful stories! As always, we were reminded of the power of stories and what a privilege it is to hear them told well – with great lighting and sound, pretty programs, and comfortable seats. We’re so grateful to have the night preserved with good photographs and video, and to be able to donate money to the Centers For Youth and Families, a wonderful local cause.

None of this would be possible without local small businesses sponsoring the show.

Whether they offer their talents in trade or send cash our way, the individuals and their businesses who sponsor us literally make the show happen. The four of us could audition people and encourage them all day long, but we could not rent the theater and fulfill the requirements of the LTYM experience without them. They are our friends – we know and trust them and their work – and we’d love for you to know them too!
