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 January 26, 2022 from 10:00am-12:00pm.


Wednesdays On-Campus: Meet from January 26 - May 11 at 10:00am

Kick-Off Brunch: On Wednesday, January 26, we will enjoy brunch together in the Student Center and spend time getting to know one another. Our study will begin on Wednesday, February 2, in the Main Building. 

We will have a hot waffle bar and bacon (compliments of Waffle House), fruit, juice and coffee awaiting you that morning, ready at 9:30 am.

Just bring yourself and a friend and join us for brunch!

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. We also have two grandsons.  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.

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

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!

Wade and I have been married for 41 years, and have 3 wonderful children and one beautiful daughter-in-law! We have been at Brook Hills for 21 years. I have enjoyed many roles at BH from nursery and children, to women my age and young moms. It is such a gift to get to know and love the young moms I’ve gotten to know at Brook Hills.

“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!”
