Editorial Reviews


"Molly's story of unwavering faith in the midst of overwhelming loss is perhaps the most moving thing I have ever read. Well-written with beautiful honesty, this book is both heartbreaking and redemptive, carrying a message of hope for our lives on earth and in eternity. Anyone who has experienced loss will find a friend and fellow sojourner in Molly. It is impossible not be supernaturally inspired by the faith, courage and resilience in these pages. We all have hard battles in this life, and I believe this book will help many people. It is not to be missed." 
Ericka Andersen, author of Leaving Cloud 9, host of the Worth Your Time podcast, and contributor to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal
"Molly has a remarkable story that touches both the depths of despair and the heights of hope. Not only that, she's able to help the reader find God's purposes in their own redemptive journey by drawing out unique insights and inspiring revelation. We would highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever experienced any measure of pain -- which is everyone."
Davey and Kristi Blackburn, Founders of Nothing is Wasted Ministries and host of The Nothing is Wasted Podcast
The Moon is Round is an incredible story of loss and grief and love and true faith.  You will be both deeply moved by the journey that Molly's writing takes you on as well as deeply inspired by her faith through such difficult circumstances.  It is a beautiful book and you should read it right now! 
Jon McLaughlin, singer songwriter
One of the worst things about suffering is feeling alone. That's what makes Molly's rendering of her story so powerful for those who read it--the companionship it provides to those who hurt, along with generous doses of insight, vulnerability, and hope. 
Nancy Guthrie, author of Hearing Jesus Speak Into Your Sorrow
We are all stewards of the pain God has allowed in our lives. In this book, Molly shares the real, raw truth of her life with much grace. I hope you are moved by her story to draw near to the God who loves you abundantly.
Chris Fabry, author and host of Chris Fabry Live
"Molly has experienced more loss in her life than most and she has made the brave choice to allow God to mold and refine her through her suffering instead of becoming bitter. There are beautiful lessons for all of us throughout this entire book. She challenges us to look at our most painful moments through a different set of lenses. She cheers us on with the great reminder that we can all do hard things. This book is raw, honest and will continually bring you back to the Hero of the story: Jesus. With Jesus pain is never wasted, suffering is never without purpose and this world is not the end of the story." 
Kim Tabor, worship leader, speaker, and author of Finally Free
"What an honor you have, reading this book. If there is anyone who will give you grounding truth for your aching heart, it is Molly. Because she knows ache. She knows pain. She knows grief. And she knows truth that steadies the shaking soul. She tells her story with page-turning prose and refreshing honesty. Thank you, Molly, for sharing your precious life."
Amy Seiffert, speaker and author of Grace Looks Amazing on You and Chin Up
"Often we hear about the mountaintop experiences, even the valley ones too; rarely do we hear about the climb, the gripping to rock and walking parched in rugged terrain toward hope. We need Molly's voice, this book to teach and remind us that a loving Savior is present with us in that whole journey. Thank you Molly for using your voice to speak to what our souls long for in joy and pain, tragedy and triumph."
Sarah Scharbrough McLaughlin, singer songwriter and host of the Momnensia podcast
