The 2004 Mothers of Preschoolers International Convention will be held in Nashville, Tennessee from September 23-25. The theme of the convention is "Fresh Fruit: Growing a Life That Matters", which focuses on Christian mothering as it will connect moms from all over the world to each other and help them realize they are not alone in this most significant vocation.

Elisa Morgan, president of MOPS, expects some 5,800 mothers and leaders around the world to gather at the event learning about being a mom in a spiritual sense.

"It's just an amazing time when moms go, 'You know what, I don't want to do motherhood alone,' and start looking again at 'What are my values, what do I believe, and how do I want to raise my family?'" Morgan says. Also, she adds, "It's a season when moms turn back to God if they had known Him in their past, or they begin to explore Him for the first time."

Point of Grace, Aaron O'Donnell, George Roe, Out of Eden, and Dave LeMieux are expected to perform gospel music at this convention.
