Featured author for the Saturday, February 18, “An Author in Town” event at Bethany's Southwestern Christian Univeristy will be Molly Lemmons. The program will begin at 3 p.m. The University Library is located at NW39th Expressway and just west of Rockwell.
Often known as Miss MollyLouBelle with Tales to Tell, Molly Lemmons is not only an author, but a professional storyteller as well. She takes some of her stories from her first published book, Kind of Heart, a non-fiction collection of stories about growing up in Oklahoma City during the 1950's.
Her stories are geared to touch your heart with humor, nostalgia and inspiration, encouraging both readers and listeners to celebrate families, relationships and God. She has been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul several times, Christian Chronicle, Christian Woman, Ideals Magazine, Heavenly Patchwork, and Christian Journal. Her stories have also run in newspapers in Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas.
She teaches workshops on Writing and Telling Life's Memories (from the heart) and travels wherever she is called to tell her stories, or teach her writing classes. A member of Territory Tellers and a member of National Storytelling Network, she is also a member of Christian Storytelling Network, Oklahoma City Writers, Inc. Inspirational Women's Network, Oklahoma Federation of Writers, Inc. and Oklahoma Association of Storytellers, and Oklahoma Presenters and Performers. In 2011, she was first runner up in the Mrs. Senior Oklahoma competition.
Her other books are The Passing of Paradise, a fictional inspirational romance, and As Bright and as Pure as the Driven Snow, a series of lessons designed for the teen aged girl on God's plan for sexual purity before marriage. The lessons conclude with study sheets and work pages, and her fourth book, Seize the Flashbacks, is a how-to book on writing memories from the heart. Hold My Hand, My Precious Child, her fifth book, is a gift book about role reversals as we age, and is dedicated to mothers everywhere, but most especially to her own beloved mother. We are Invisible, her sixth book, is a non fictional account of the heart- rending emotions that a woman goes through in caring for an aged parent.
An alumna of Oklahoma Christian University, she is mother to two and "GrandMolly" to two. She lives in Mustang, OK with her husband of 53 years and her dog and three cats.
An event not to be missed. Her stories will tug at your heartstrings and encourage you to celebrate God, families, and life.
