About This Book:
The good folks at Mt. Zion Baptist is doing their best to keep the church flowing smoothly while Pastor Phillips takes time off to be with his wife in her final days. Beatrice “Mama B” Jackson even opens her home so that the women’s groups can continue to meet faithfully after some “rascal” stole the copper from the church’s air conditioning unit. With her semi-estranged granddaughter and great-grandson staying in the guest room, Mama B soon has a full house. When the interim preacher and his wife start touting messages that don’t line up with the Bible, Mama B wonders how and if she can intervene without causing strife in the congregation or discouraging the young couple. However, Mama B can only take so much of this foolishness. Though her own faith might be intact, she can’t have her great-grandson believing that God is a Sugar Daddy in the sky. Soon enough, Mama B will realize that there is much more at stake than she or anyone else at Mt. Zion ever imagined. And it’s time to speak. Mama B – A Time to Speak is full of godly wisdom and humor that will make you take a deep breath after that last page and smile from the inside out.
Mama B- A Time To Speak (Book 1) Book Review:
Congratulations to Michelle Stimpson for writing a wonderful Christian Novella. This is the third book that I read by Michelle Stimpson. “Mama B- A Time To Speak” is an awesome story reveal by Beatrice, affectionately know as Mama B. Mama B has a lot of spunk for being 72 years old and a child of God. She really loves the Lord and believes in His word. I love the way how Michelle creates all of the characters and deal with real situations in the Christian community from prosperity-only ministries to the misleading of infidelity themed books as Christian books. Mama B don’t hold her tongue when she has seen things that aren’t Christ like. She will let you know that you are going against the Word of God. She has a lot of wisdom and strong faith in God. The reason why I love this book so much because the Character Mama B was always steadily thoughtful and talking with God. Michelle minister to her readers the simplicity of the Word of God and the importance of having a personal relationship with Him. This story was definitely well written because God has anointed the pen of Michelle Stimpson to allow her to write. Mama B is old school and have great wisdom to help others to come to Christ. This was another book that it only took one day to read. Once I started to read this book that I couldn’t put it down.
The Christian community can relate to this book because this is the true story about the life of the Church. In the midst of trouble, we as Christians need to remember that our trouble won’t last always. God will guide us through our storms and if we allow ourselves to listen to Him then things will work out. Prayer is the key to our problems. I will recommend this book to anyone who looking for empowerment, encouragement and hope. Michelle’s writing will minister to her readers through the characters as they are reading this story. Also you will enjoy this wonderful story about Mama B. All of the characters, especially Mama B were easy to relate to. Also the topics in this story that is the life of a Christian. Again Mama B is an elderly woman that is very involved with her Church. Everybody in the Church Community respected her. She has a strong belief on how the Church should be run. When an interim Pastor and his wife start to bring ideas that isn’t the Christian way that she was taught by. She wasn’t going to tolerate it at all. You need to read this book for yourself. I am looking forward to read more of the Mama B series. This will be a great book for discussions at your favorite book club or Church meeting. Thank you Michelle Stimpson for writing another great book.
