About Molly

Miss MollyLouBelleMiss MollyLouBelleMiss MollyLouBelle

Molly Lemmons has been listening to her family's stories all of her life, and has picked up the family tradition by continuing them. It is only recently that she began to tell them professionally. Her stories are taken from her very own book, Kind of Heart that was released for publication in 2000. They are stories of nostalgia about growing up during the 1940's and 1950's. She tells them unashamedly from her heart, sharing with her listeners the joys, sorrows, and humor of growing up in a large family during a time when things were as they should be.

Walk with Molly through the polio days, the trials of the teen years, the antics of her many pets, mostly her cats, "coping" with a mother and daddy who care, and finally the death of her beloved parents. Wrapped up in one sentence, of her stories, MollyLouBelle would say:

"In the winter season of my heart, my thoughts return to home and family; the glowing warmth of the fireplace, chatter around the kitchen table, and the priceless memories of lives well loved."

Her stories will tug at your heartstrings and encourage you to celebrate God, families, and life.

Molly's love of cats, no matter what size they are is evident in the stories she tells and in the books that she writes.
