Theme of The Mom Event is “Rise,” and information about the event states: “We serve a God who could not be kept down but who rose up – and he offers that same resurrection power to every mama struggling to rise out of bed each morning. When anxiety cripples us and we can’t seem to get off the floor, Jesus picks us up. When we stare up out of a pit of loss, disappointment, confusion, or hopelessness, Jesus reminds us of his redemptive power and offers his hand so that we can rise. Through every good day and bad day, with every crisis and victory, moms re empowered by the Holy Spirit to rise. In Jesus, we have the ability to rise against all obstacles with hope, power and courage.”
