The story touches your heart in a most profound way. I was somewhat skeptical toward God but longed to believe he was love. This book changed my view. The reading is also excellent.
it may be repetitive at times, and everything is amped up to extreme emotion the whole way through. but who can help but be motivated by this woman's extraordinary example? She emphasizes that she is not extraordinary, but just obedient. if she can be this obedient, I can do better in my own life. this is a must read. in hindsight, I would read it rather than audio book. the narrator does a fine job, but I would rather hear Katie's voice in my head, with more facets, than the super heightened emotional tone of the audio book.. but either way, I am recommending it to everyone. what a motivational life.
I enjoyed and appreciated the truly amazing details about Katie's journey. They are very necessary reminders to our comfortable selves of the needs in the world and what God calls us to -- sacrifice and selflessness knowing and trusting that He will provide our every need. Unfortunately, I had to listen at 3x speed because the narrator sounded too cutesy for the gravity of this story.
I loved this book! And the narrator was really good! It is for sure a "give it forward"-book, encouraging me to see the one, to never stop doing good, to always love my neighbor and always cling to my Father and let Him love me through my life here on earth.
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!
