Wow! Wow! Wow! A must-read folks. Even though I'm much older than she is, I still want to be like Katie when I grow up. :-) Such a wonderful journey and so happy to be educated on how I too can make a difference.
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.
a story that followed a timeline. Instead it was essays that followed a timeline. Katie gives a lot of credit to God, & that makes sense to a point, but I wish she would have taken credit for 80% of them. God gives you the talent, it is up to you to develop them.
