It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for, and it’s here. with our video release–we invite the global audience to come closer; to listen, learn, laugh, cry, and maybe even find hope anew. Together.Now we invite YOU to experience our extraordinary season featuring powerful voices that capture all facets of contemporary parenting (as well as stories about our own upbringing) including very timely personal narratives given the recent events in Orlando, Baton Rouge, Shaker Heights, and Dallas. On the Listen To Your Mother YouTube channel we feature a variety of playlists by topic, and for 2016 we’ve added two new playlists–one with stories about race, and another with stories from LGBTQ families.

Join LTYM at the #BlogHer16 blogging Open Mic!

National Media Sponsor SheKnows Media #BlogHer16, Merck for Mothers, and Listen To YourMother are thrilled to announce our 6th blogging Open Mic!!

What is the Open Mic?

The Open Mic is just one part of the incredible #BlogHer16 agenda, providing attendees a chance to relax and celebrate  a rich day of learning and networking. After celebrating the Voices of The Year #VOTY (bloggers selected from thousands of submissions to read their own writing at a microphone before the entire conference), you can throw your name in a hat for a chance to be randomly selected to read one of your very blog own posts before the most supportive audience that exists–your fellow internet writers.

All you need to do is bring a 5 minute piece (or shorter) to read, fill out a card, and throw it in the hat. We select readers randomly and aim to hear as many as possible. We request you respect your peers by limiting your piece to five minutes or under. Practice beforehand so you have an idea of the time. Or simply come to the Open Mic to enjoy a quiet space as an audience member, to enjoy the creative, hilarious, soul-bearing and heart-warming stories from your blog peers.

Note: You can read anything you’ve written online. It does NOT need to be remotely mother-related!!

When/Where is the Open Mic?

You can’t see the show if you don’t go to #BlogHer16. Register now for your seat in sunny Los Angeles August 4-6, 2016.

#BlogHer16: Experts Among Us is THE largest conference for women content creators in the world.

Don’t wait!


Sign up for the #BlogHer16 newsletter for announcements and opportunities.

All of the fabulous Friday night festivities take place at the LA Live Marriott, and all registered attendees are welcome. We open our mic at 7pm and we’ll hear readers until 9pm.

Thank you SheKnow’s BlogHer, for investing in community, for serving as LTYM’s North American media sponsor, and providing us “in real life” experiences for us to collaborate, learn, and celebrate the Experts Among Us. Everyone has a story, and everyone is an expert at something–being exquisitely and uniquely YOU.

The show was…

by brigid on May 8, 2016




It’s hard to put it into words. If you missed the show, you will be able to watch the LTYM YouTube videos this summer. It was a night of love, strength, and honesty. And we will forever be changed because of it.

We would like to send special thanks to our hyper-local sponsor the Frothy Monkey who graciously hosted our show after-party. Frothy Monkey’s support of our show and our cast ended the evening on a perfect note.

Meet the Cast: Rachel Giammarella

April 8, 2016

Rachel Giammarella was seven the first time she was called “a carpetbagger” and has taken the twenty years since to turn that initial insult into a title she clings to today. She came to Nashville this past July via Cleveland, Tennessee via Dalton, Georgia via Elmwood Park, New Jersey but still holds to the title of “Jersey girl”. It is that level of strength mixed with stubbornness that led her to audition for Listen to Your Mother. Despite not being a mother herself, Rachel is excited to share a different side of motherhood with the Listen to Your Mother audience. Although she has done a few theatrical performances in the past, Rachel has never done a performance where she’s reading an original piece. However, she is beyond thrilled and excited to share a piece of her story with the audience at TPAC on April 30th. After Rachel graduated from Lee University with a […]
