Southeast Texas, Listen to Your Mother

Southeast Texas was honored to be selected for the first time to host a special local performance of the Listen To Your Mother (LTYM) Show. LTYM is a nationwide program that features heartfelt, hilarious, and inspirational live readings from local writers in celebration of motherhood. Born of the creative work of mothers who publish online, each production is directed, produced, and performed by local communities, for local communities.

In addition to featuring local writers, proceeds from the show will also benefit the Gift of Life Program!

2014 Kick Butts Day

Educating those around them on the dangers of tobacco, Gift of Life Youth Council members in our area spent a day in March called KICK BUTTS DAY doing their part to eradicate this dangerous habit. Some used bracelets, some used science, and some handed out "dum-dums," but all of them tried to speak to their peers about why this is one habit you can not afford to start.

Our community leaders were also instrumental in this effort, making anti-smoking proclamations in Hardin, Jefferson, Jasper and Orange counties in support of Kick Butts Day.

Check out more photos from the proclamations and events here.
