My husband, Rob Moll, laughed with hearty vigor, loved the outdoors, and always had a book close at hand. He was warm, funny and sincere — an Enneagram nine, peaceful, steady and faithful. We enjoyed 17 years of happy marriage together, and he was the love of my life.
Rob was a devoted husband and father. Endlessly curious, he instilled in our four young children a sense of awe and wonder at the natural world. He especially loved hiking with our kids in the mountains, a place where he keenly sensed God’s presence. Rob loved to play football in the backyard with our boys and cheer on our daughter at her 4-H dog shows. He even let our youngest brush his curly hair. He loved us deeply and served and cared for us wholeheartedly.
Rob was an author and journalist, and he dedicated his professional career to advancing the Church’s mission to walk in the way of Christ. Rob worked for Christianity Today and World Vision and Eventide Asset Management; wrote countless articles; and authored two books, The Art of Dying: Living Fully Into the Life To Come and What Your Body Knows about God: How We Are Designed to Connect, Serve and Thrive.
“We all need to learn to die well, whatever age we are.”Rob Moll, The Art of Dying
“Prayer that seeks communion with God actually makes us more thoughtful and rational, enhances our sense of peace and well-being, and makes us more compassionate and responsive to the needs of other people.”Rob Moll, What Your Body Knows About God
“It is good to look death in the eye and constantly remind ourselves that our hope is in God, who defeated death.”Rob Moll, The Art of Dying
