EVERYBODY has a story to tell. Maybe yours will be about being a mother. Or maybe you could write about your own mother.
You do not have to be a writer to write your personal story for this wonderful stage presentation, Listen to Your Mother St. Louis which is part of a national event.
I participated last year, and I can assure you that the stories were amazing; some made me weep, some made me guffaw and some made me smile with contentment. The entire charity event was life changing. Participants and attendees were impacted by personal stories about overcoming obstacles, cherishing mothers, struggling with motherhood, honoring motherhood.
Even my husband commented about how diverse and heart touching the stories were.
Emotions ran high as women read their stories aloud before a live audience.
Get your story in. The deadline is three weeks away. Write from YOUR heart. That's what I did. here is a You Tube link of me reading my story.

Please feel free to run your story past me if you have any doubts or if you want me to preview it for you and make suggestions before you submit. Best of luck to all of you.
While I'm thinking about it, Chicken Soup for the Soul is also looking for moms stories. Start writing.
