Lifeway Hosts dotMOM Sept. 20-21

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

LifeWay Christian Resources is slated to host dotMOM on Sept. 20-21, at the Chattanooga Convention Center.


The event, geared toward mothers of all stages, plans to feature popular Bible teachers Jen Hatmaker, John Croyle, Angela Thomas and Lauren Chandler.


“It was such a great experience for me to bring 11 other women from my church to dotMOM,” attendee Kristy Bailey said. “We are all moms but are at different seasons of mothering. I was curious how the event would be applicable to each of us, and I can only say that it exceeded my expectations.”

In addition to the large group worship times, the two-day event will include breakout sessions ranging from how to raise godly kids to dealing with God’s plan for infertility and adoption.


“I was so challenged to continue striving to become the best mom that I can be for the children that God has blessed me with,” attendee Kelly Sipes said.


dotMOM will start Friday, Sept. 20 at 1 p.m. and conclude for the evening at 8:30. It starts back up the following morning at 9:30 and continues until 4:15 in the afternoon. General admission tickets are $79, which covers both days of the event.


To register for dotMOM, call 800/254-2022.
