You’ve read the title, and now you’re scratching your head, wondering if this book is for real, right?
It is. Yes, the authors are bona fide Mormons. And hilarious, too! They call themselves Sistas in Zion.
Did we mention they’ve got enough faith to move mountains? Well, they haven’t moved any mountains just yet, but that’s not stopping them from keeping right on praying and believing and knowing that the gospel of Jesus Christ is worth it.
Their unique perspective on their own diary entries will have you laughing one minute and exclaiming “Amen!” the next. They talk about personal experiences and lessons they’ve learned about relationships, sisterhood, standing up for what you believe, embracing diversity, and dealing with adversity—what being a Christian is all about.
The Sistas’ humorous and poignant outlook on life will strengthen your faith and remind you of the joy to be found in living a Christ-centered life. You’ll soon realize that the authors aren't mad-mad—they’re crazy-mad, funny, and inspiring!

Book Readers Review
This book is not what you would expect from the title: Diary of Two Mad Black Mormons. I was asked to review the book written by Zandra Vranes and Tamu Smith also known as “Sista Laurel and Sista Beehive. Due to a heavy load of reviews at Book Readers, I have not completed the book, just over half way. However, I am happy to say that I will read this book to the end! It is quite inspiring, stimulating, and even funny. The diary entries of these two ladies are the essence of the book, the lessons they have learned through their lives, family relationships, faith and prayer. I would absolutely recommend this book.
I received this book from NetGalley and Deseret Books in return for an honest review.
