This book will be a blessing and an encouragement. The biblical principles are wonderful. I ordered 5 copies of the book after finishing it to distribute as gifts. In addition, the readers voice was pleasant to listen to.
Yes! This book is a great read for anyone who is mission minded.
Katie, the author who unflinchingly trusts God.
If ever you wondered about missions to orphans, here you will find trust with no boundaries.
Katie unflinchingly trusts for provisions we take for granted daily. She is inspiring and amazing because she trusts in an awesome God!

It's very hard to choose what I loved best about this book; the narration was delightful, the characters lovable, and the story was inspirational. Finding a young adult called by God and responding at such a young age was soothing to my aching soul.
One of the most memorable moments was when Katie returned to the United States to attend college as she had promised her father. Even though she had adopted children whom would have to be left behind, as well as a ministry that cared for many more, her commitment to honoring her promise to her Dad was one with which she dealt with integrity.
Without a doubt, our heroine, Katie Davis, is my favorite. She's truly a natural mother, compassionate, passionate about the issues presented by poverty, wise beyond her years, and has faith that leads her through every imaginable obstacle.
It's hard to explain the most moving part of the book without giving away an extremely touching part of Katie's story. Suffice it to say that her most devastating moment, and all the actions that followed, affected me deeply. Not only did I cry as I read it, but it made me pause and consider how I would react in such a situation. It also showed how God prepares our path for such times and provides help before we even ask or know that we will need it.
Not only was I moved by Katie's parenting and organizational skills, her passion for the poor, and her bravery in facing scary challenges, her discernment in applying Scripture to life's challenges deemed her very wise in my opinion. The reading by Jaimee Draper was excellent quality. No, Katie Davis is real and is not too good to be true.
Well-written and well-read. She challenges us all who believe in Christ to really live what He taught. It's amazing how God uses her- and is ready to use any of us who try to be in the center of His will.
Yes. great nuggets of truth about selfless love and sacrifice for the greater good of humanity.
Personal...sweetness of belief and feeling.
Katie's sacrifice of the "American dream" for what others might call poverty.
I strongly encourage (especialy young people) to read this!
I think Katie Davis gives us a good example of what a true Christian is like. She is giving her life in service to others less fortunate than herself... and she truly enjoys and loves doing it. I believe these are the kinds of people that will be in Heaven.
Her humble way of looking at her life and the realness of it all
There are many many memorable moments through out the book but I especially love the way each of her children find her and the unconditional love she has for them all. Each one comes with such a wonderful story big and small. Miracles are brought to pass throught the story.
Her time in Uganda
Great book. EVERYONE should learn from her amazing journey and find what their JOurney is.
loves non-fiction, memoir and biography or the classics.
Although heavily Christian, this book is powerful for people of all religions and non-religion. Katie gives insight into a world completely unlike that of our western society. Her daily accounts of helping children of extreme poverty help us look at our society of excess in a new way. At times it can get uncomfortable for non-Christians as everything she talks about seems to relate to God and Jesus. However, if a listener can relax about the religious part and listen to the heart of the story, Katie's strong message of love will come through. The story provides much-needed perspective.
Katie Davis is truly an incredibly faithful soul, who follows her Lord out into the impoverished needy world that is Uganda. Her story will bring tears to eyes and hope into your heart inspiring you to love deeply and do more.
Wow, what a powerful and inspiring story! Katie Davis is an amazing young woman. We loved this book so much that we bought both the audio and hardcover versions.
