I first learned about "Little Pearls" shortly after I moved to Asheville several years ago. In all my many moves around the country, I'd never encountered any project like it. Little Pearls is (are?) a real gift to all of us, and I feel very fortunate to live in a community where these stories flourish!

Little Pearls is a gem for highlighting the simple things in life that we all need to stop and cherish . Linda and her team work so hard and make these brief glimpses into the lives of remarkable beings seem effortless. Beauty at its best!

I have seen many of "the Pearls" for 8-10 years? From Amanda's story, to Dog Pearls, to the stories of ordinary but extraordinary people. They are beautifully and sensitively told showing us the miracles in everyday life. My heart is always lifted when I see them. What an amazing woman Linda McLean is!

Little Pearls is truly a GEM! The stories touch my very heart and soul, often bringing me to tears! I watch them over and over, finding JOY everytime! Though some appear to be sad on the surface, the lesson behind them is AMAZING! We are all united and share this beautiful world. We often forget that it is our responsibility to care for ALL living things and to cherish the time we have here! I look forward to many more beautiful and heartwarming stories!

Little Pearls is a uniquely compelling, heart-touching and heart-warming organization that is dedicated to producing "mini-media" moments that go right to the core of the true spirit of our human-ness. The name ("Little Pearls") is entirely fitting; indeed, Little Pearls are gems of insight that touch upon and express "heart zingers" that bind us all, and in the process, connect us to our common spirit that animates our lives.

There is nothing quite like "Little Pearls", and nothing that touches our souls in such a simple, direct, and touching manner. Wonderful, and beautiful!

Little Pearls has help me get through many days of being lonely and feeling sorry for myself since losing my husband of 42 years. The founder is a caring person who can lighten a persons
spirit just by watching these short films . I hope more people can enjoy the work of Little Pearls and have a better day and help others.
