Our Mom Time Small Groups are designed for mothers of young children still at home to be led and discipled by older women, studying the Bible and building friendships and fellowships. These groups will be meeting on campus every Wednesday beginning August 25, 2021 from 10am-12:00pm.


Wednesdays On-Campus: Meet from September 1 - November 10 at 10:00am


Working Moms Tuesday Evening Group by Zoom: Meet from August 24 - November 9 from 8:30pm-10:00pm, led by Mohana Shull.

If you are a working mom, this is a great place to join a Mom Time small group, each Tuesday evening on Zoom.  Whether you work full-time, part-time, from home, or in an office, join this evening Zoom group as you are encouraged and equipped to face the challenges and joys of being a working mom.


Email Dawn Stephens at with questions.

We offer on-campus childcare for preschoolers (Birth-K5) for our Mom Time small groups. We would love to have your child(ren) join us each week of the semester, September 1 - November 10, 2021!

The deadline to register for childcare has passed. Please email  with your child's information, and if there has been a cancellation or opening in a childcare room, we will make every effort to provide childcare for your child during this semester.

Fall Serve Day: 

Moms, on Wednesday, October 20, 2021, your small group will not meet on campus, but will instead, serve off-campus in our community. On that morning, you are able to leave your children in our on-campus childcare while you serve with your group. Please complete the forms at this link so we have information about your child should we need to give him or her medical attention while you are off-campus.


Vivian Garrett (B-313)
I went to graduate school at Auburn and met my husband, Bill, in the Navigator ministry. We have been married for 37 years and have five daughters, who are all married. We also now have two grandsons. I love to read, being involved in politics, playing games, hiking, being around my sisters and ballroom dancing. I am currently studying Biblical Counseling at Birmingham Theological Seminary. I have been through many difficult things, and the only thing that has given me any comfort and consolation in my distress is God's Word.

Beth Gilbert (B-309)
My husband’s name is Terry, and we have been members at Brook Hills since 2010. We have three children and seven grandchildren. Two of our children and their families attend BH as well. I have been a leader at Mom Time for about seven years. I greatly enjoy getting to know young mothers and their families. It is truly an honor to watch as God works in their lives.

Shawn Grubb (B-303)
Rob and I have been married 32 years. We have three precious daughters, three wonderful sons-in-law, four grandsons, and one granddaughter. It is one of my deepest joys to come alongside young women, as they are in the midst of some of the hardest seasons of their lives. It is my prayer that God could use my life’s experiences and testimony to encourage others in this journey

Jill Howard (B-306)
I am a graduate of Auburn University in Early Childhood Education, married to Troy and mother of four. I grew up in Mobile, AL but have lived in Birmingham for 30+ years. I enjoy hobbies like knitting and gardening. I am passionate about sharing my mistakes/small victories in the area of motherhood with young moms.

My name is Leslie Musgraves. I have been married to Mike for 32 years. We have three grown children and four adorable grandchildren. We moved to Birmingham two years ago from Southern California, where I taught elementary school for 34 years. We love living in Birmingham! I believe there is nothing more life-transforming than digging into God’s Word.

Cathy Joiner (B-305)
I have been married to Mike Joiner for over 42 years. We have one daughter, and she and her husband have one son. They are also foster parents and have one foster son in their home right now. We have been members of Brook Hills for 22 years, and I have led Mom Time groups for five years. I enjoy spending time with family, cooking/baking and volunteer work with Shelby Baptist Association.

Mohana Shull (Working Moms- Evening by Zoom)
I am originally from Chile. I met my husband, Jared, on a short-term mission trip and came to the US for the first time right before we got married fifteen years ago. We have two children, Nate and Isaiah. Our family lives in Homewood, and I work as a Spanish interpreter. I love cooking and having friends from our church over for dinner. I have led a Mom Time Small Group for ten years.

Allison Sowell (B-308)
I’m the wife of Charles and mom to three young adult sons. Having finally finished homeschooling them, I have LOVED getting to focus some of my time with young women as a Mom Time leader at Brook Hills! The Lord has given me a real heart for mentoring young moms and coming alongside then to encourage them as wives and mothers!

“Mom Time has been an incredible blessing in my life! The Lord has used these women to encourage me in my pursuit of Christ and mothering in His image. The friendships formed are genuine and some of the most meaningful I’ve ever had. So thankful that the Lord directed me to step out and get involved!”
