Listen to your mother

Dear StoryCorps Friend,    

Sunday is Mother's Day and the perfect gift is already right in your hand! Why not take a short break from the brunches and barbecues and record a conversation with your mother using the new StoryCorps app? You can download the app here.

Together, you'll create a lasting memory that you can preserve forever.  

Ask your mom...
How has being a mother changed your life?

What are some special memories you have of your mom?

What are your hopes and dreams for my future and yours?

What songs did you sing to me as a child?

Using the app's step-by-step directions, it's simple to honor your mother while preserving her wisdom, memories, and voice forever at the Library of Congress.  

If you're unable to be with your mom this weekend, get together with a sibling, friend, or spouse and share some stories about a woman who means a lot to you. Listen closely--you never know what you'll learn about the extraordinary women in your life!
