Welcome to our new podcast – About Your Mother, Where Your Story Begins. Host Jennifer Griffith is on a mission to celebrate and examine one of the most powerful and influential relationships in our lives: our relationship with our mother.
The Power of Storytelling
Each month, join Jennifer as she converses with compelling guests. She will unravel stories from their childhood and how their past shaped who they became.
“It is a journey we all take, but each road we travel is different and that, to me, is the power of this kind of storytelling.” - Jennifer Griffith Click To Tweet
Homage to Jennifer’s Mother
The podcast was born as Jennifer was writing her first book. It was an homage to her mother’s young life. She tragically lost her parents so she grew up in an orphanage with her four siblings.
“After completing my mother’s story, my book grew. It transformed into a mother-daughter memoir exploring a family based on secrets and abandonment. In writing about the trauma my mother faced in her young life I realized the impact her childhood had on the way she raised me. The challenges I faced in my life were suddenly linked to hers.” – Jennifer Griffith
Our Connection To Our Mothers
We are connected to our mothers in profound ways. We live through their experiences – directly and indirectly. Through this podcast, Jennifer will navigate through the lives of the guests through the significant experiences they have with their mothers.
“Do you know who your mother was before she was your mom? Do you know how her childhood shaped the way she raised you? Or her choice not to? In sharing our narratives with another – our celebrations, our failures, our shame, our dreams – we create a connection. We weave the fabric of our ancestral survival. We all have a story to tell and all of our stories matter. And all of our stories begin with hers.” – Jennifer Griffith
