Welcome Back, National Advertiser Luvs! Supporter of LTYM and Creative Women Online!

April 23, 2015

Listen To Your Mother welcomes back National Advertiser Luvs!! Caregivers and parents already love Luvs for their high-quality low cost diaper, and even if you don’t have babies rolling around in your life, you will love Luvs for their clever, true, and hilarious First kid/Second kids ads.   What you might not know and love about Luvs is that they collaborate with funny women, specifically humor/parenting bloggers. Luvs first partnered with me and a team of humor bloggers in 2012, when they handed us the keys to their marketing. We created and spearheaded an entire campaign; writing content for First Kid/Second Kid, creating video, launching social media campaigns, even serving as influencers for Luvs’ sponsorship of ABC’s Bet On Your Baby.

2015 LTYM SHOWS OPEN THIS WEEKEND!!

April 20, 2015

Words permit one to cross into the life of the other. –Irvin Yalom For months and months (and months) 100 creative visionaries across the country have worked tirelessly in preparation for the upcoming two weeks, when they will host their own LTYM Show. Thanks to the internet, our words and lives intersect online. Emails, blogging, social media, webinars–all of the technology–enables us to collaborate and deliver LTYM show to you and your real life community in time for Mother’s Day. Many of us–directors/producers, cast members, auditioners, and audience members alike– come to LTYM as a result of words typed from our hearts, as we press publish and connect with other people doing the same. Our words serve as a bridge–an opportunity to cross over into each others lives. We meet at the crossroads of our stories and our journeys intersect. Sometimes we simply pause and listen, receive with “I see you.” We might […]

More than a book, more than a book launch: “We really are the same”

April 17, 2015

April 7th arrived and now people can purchase LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER: What She Said Then, What We’re Saying Now in book stores everywhere.  You can pick up our book and think “Great title!” without knowing about 1500 people braving the stage, and often for the first time. That mouth on the book jacket can catch your eye without any idea that people yearn for this starkly honest and sometimes irreverent dialogue spoken aloud about mothering and being mothered, to the extent that they become producers and directors almost overnight in order to host their own LTYM show. When a shopper drops LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER: What She Said Then, What We’re Saying Now into their cart and thinks “Score! Perfect Mother’s Day Gift!” they might not know the tradition of communities crossing bridges literal and metaphorical to come together if only for 90 minutes once a year to honor and celebrate the work of […]
