I love stories about people.
I love stories about what God does in and for and through His people.
But I never expected that grief and loss would be such a part of God’s story with me.
In 2009, I lost my mom (and best friend) to melanoma cancer. I was only twenty-four at the time, and it completely rocked my world.
In 2012, my husband and I lost our first child to a miscarriage.
In 2014, we lost our 8-month-old son, Tage, to a rare metabolic disease called Leigh’s Disease. It is still rocking my world.
In 2016, I went through a surprising and unwanted divorce which brought more change and anxiety than I had ever experienced before.
Yet despite all the pain, God’s presence is more present than it ever was before.
As Tage’s illness progressed, I started a CaringBridge site to keep our loved ones informed. I always tried to write truthfully and vulnerably. I wanted to point people to God. There were over 20,000 views to our CaringBridge page during this season and hundreds of Facebook messages sharing how Tage’s story was impacting their lives in big ways. God-sized ways.
During the outpouring of love at Tage’s funeral, many people encouraged me to continue writing, and so, I will continue to share my story, here, in this space. I humbly invite you to pull up a chair and join me. Questions, doubt, trust, faith, joy, sorrow, uncertainty…it is all welcomed here.
You are welcome here.

Molly, I really appreciate you starting this blog. You truly have a gift for writing; a gift for sharing your faith, love and trust in our mighty God. I weep with you as I read your raw, honest, vulnerable trials. My mommy heart aches for and with you. You, Josh and Tage are in my thoughts constantly and I will continue to pray. Love to you all…
You are a hero. I think about the story you have and get chills when I think about God restoring you two fold recompense. I can’t wait to watch God use you and your life. I think of you often and pray for you more. Your words are beautiful and so is your heart.
You do not know me but I know you through a mutual friend of ours, Kim Livingston. I have been following your story and I am amazed by you. You, your husband and Tage have given me hope…hope that I can have a relationship with God and that there is truly something bigger out there.
I guess I dont know how to describe the impact you an Tage have had on my life. Its indescribable. I want nothing more than to give you all the strength in my body to get you through this lifetime. If you ever need a friend, you can contact me. I wish you nothing more than love, peace and strength.
Molly and Josh,
Your blog is so honest, so truthful and so well written. We are praying for you consistently. Every day. Know there is a whole family of people who love you well and support you both. I’m so sorry we were out of town when Tage went to the loving arms of Jesus. Know we are not going to forget to pray.
Molly I just came across your blog through a fb friend that shared it and I truly think God directed me to you. I am going through a divorce and have never felt pain like this in my life but I continue to rely on and trust God. You have been through so much. Thank you for sharing.
Hi Monica! First of all, I am so very sorry for the pain of divorce in your life. It truly is such a devastating loss. I pray God will teach you such incredible things about Himself as you continue to seek Him and rely on Him. I know He will! I hope you find some encouragement here. I also just gave my story on the podcast “Nothing is Wasted”. It’s episode 74. Perhaps that will be an encouragement to your soul as well if you ever listen to podcasts! Blessing to you, my friend.
