Thank you, Little Rock, for a fantastic show!

by Sarabeth Jones on May 20, 2015

It’s hard to wrap up the magical experience of a Listen To Your Mother show; the best I can say is that everything was just as it should be: a darkened room, stage lit, anticipation in the air.

We laughed, we cried. We were triumphant. We listened to each other, and were all the better for it. Here in Little Rock, Listen To Your Mother worked its way into our hearts once again.

Anthony Valley - Cast of Listen To Your Mother, Little Rock 2015 | http://listentoyourmothershow.com/littlerockAnthony K. Valley (also called Valley or AK) has a mom, but is in fact not a mom. To make up for that shortcoming, he is the husband to Stacey (LTYM LR ’14 alumna), the father to four daughters, and is disliked by the family dog (female). During the day, AK works with the customer experience methodology as a database professional in Enterprise Marketing at Windstream. Happiness is his livelihood. What’s the secret to AK’s success? He accepts that he’s a broken man fully redeemed by Jesus. In response to this love, AK serves Christ imperfectly everyday. AK helps our homeless neighbors, mentors at-risk students, and often takes missions trips. AK serves as an Elder, musician, student leader, and actor at Fellowship North. [TwitterInstagramFacebookBlog]

Anthony’s story about how his mother chose to inform him about the birds and the bees will leave you laughing out loud. You don’t want to miss it!

Deanna has discovered that attention deficit disorder can be a fun, meandering journey of creativity, but she has also learned that depression flat out stinks. She firmly believes you can never have too much of a good thing—especially if either of those things are naps or chocolate. by
