Katie shows how God calls ordinary people and does extraordinary things in and through them when they are totally surrendered. She has very little of the things many of us take for granted and think we must have in life, but she has unimaginable joy and love that most Christians never experience. She loves God with all her heart and loves all that God puts in her path, demonstrating that through service. She has great wisdom and God has used her to convict me. I pray my life will be transformed like hers! I must make the same choices she has, to follow God however He leads.
I really wanted to like this book however she made it very difficult by referring to the orphans as "brown children". It just left a bad feeling it just felt like she was using these poor people to play her role as "mommy". Wouldn't read!
This is my desire: to have a heart, a faith, a trust in Jesus like Katie. She, at her young age, has a very mature understanding of what this means - or is this what childlike faith looks like in a practical way?
