1. Beautiful post Molly!! What a perspective – I can only imagine what those women have to go through!!!! And to know that with you being pregnant as well, I’m sure it was emotional for you too.

    I’m thinking and praying for those women right now. My heart hurts.

    I’m sure your ministry will continue to do AMAZING things

  2. Really beautifully put Molly. It’s something I really try to live my life by – being thankful. Every night I ask my kids what they are thankful for that day and then we pray. I’ll keep your ladies in our prayers. I also love the song “Gold” by Brit Nicole – says so much about your worth to God.

    Much love,

  3. WOW! no other words can describe this. I love reading your blog so much and love it that much more when you go into deep thoughts that make me think so much. I kind of needed to read this tonight, I started that new job and boy oh boy…..its really tough! But things like this put things into perspective! Thanks for sharing Buck Buck!!

  4. Wow, it’s so hard to imagine giving birth to a baby then someone taking it away. I can’t even imagine. This is such a good reminder to remember how blessed i really am.


  5. ive watched those msnbc specials on mothers behind prison and it does break your heart, to know that the mom and baby will be separated most of the time. what an awesome ministry you and your church is involved in!

  6. Molly, have you ever thought about going into ministry full time? I truly believe that is your calling, from my eyes. Your words are so inspiring and heartfelt. I can’t imagine those women in that prison being pregnant and not being able to be with their babies. And I agree…..we all need second chances and grace…this pot was one of your best!! xoxo

  7. Thank you so, so much for sharing this. I’m expecting my first child, and the things that those women will have to endure have not crossed my mind at all. Thank you for serving them and praying for them.

  8. Ahhh – tears, lots of tears! Thank you so much for sharing. I cannot imagine the pain they go through knowing they may never see their baby again. It breaks my heart. I love to hear about the prison ministry and the work you do there. The reference to the game of chess is so spot on in so many situations in everyone’s lives, well I know it is in mine. Also, random question that you’ve probably already addressed (sorry): I really like the Kenya bracelet that you regularly wear. Is there a place I can purchase one? Even better if the proceeds go to help those in Kenya. Thanks.

  9. That’s wonderful what you do Molly. I can’t imagine what it’s like for those women and hopefully you guys volunterring helps makes things a bit easier for them.

  10. I should have known better than to read this at work – not enough tissues. Thank you, thank you, thank you for these beautiful thoughts and serious dose of perspective. I’m saving this to come back to in the future.

  11. Thank you, as I often need reminding of this, even when the walking, talking incarnation of His Love for me is right here beside me. I tend to focus too much on the flawed and broken and unworthy aspects of my life, and forget about the love and the grace and the forgiveness that is freely given to and bestowed upon me by Him just because I am willing to accept that He loves me and forgives me for everything. Thank you for the reminder.

    By the way, I could never do what you do for those people in that ministry. Just not strong enough, glad that you are.
