Kisses from Katie: A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption | [Katie Davis, Beth Clark]

Kisses from Katie: A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption

"Sometimes I want to spend hours talking with my best friends about boys and fashion and school and life. I want to go to the gym; I want my hair to look nice; I want to be allowed to wear jeans. I want to be a normal young woman living in America, sometimes. But I want other things more. All the time. I want to be spiritually and emotionally filled every day. I want to be loved and cuddled by a hundred children and never go a day without laughing.

Publisher's Summary

My life in the red dirt of Uganda...

"Sometimes I want to spend hours talking with my best friends about boys and fashion and school and life. I want to go to the gym; I want my hair to look nice; I want to be allowed to wear jeans. I want to be a normal young woman living in America, sometimes. But I want other things more. All the time. I want to be spiritually and emotionally filled every day. I want to be loved and cuddled by a hundred children and never go a day without laughing. I want to wake up to a rooster’s crow and open my eyes to see lush green trees that seem to pulse with life against a piercing blue sky and the rusty red soil of Uganda. I want to be challenged endlessly. I want to be taught by those I teach, and I want to share God’s love with people who otherwise might not know it. I want to work so hard that I end every day filthy and too tired to move. I want to make some kind of difference, no matter how small, and I want to follow the calling God has placed on my heart. I want to give my life away, to serve the Lord with each breath. At the end of the day, no matter how hard, I want to be right here in Uganda." -Katie Davis

    "This book changed my life!"

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Kisses from Katie the most enjoyable?

    The wonder and love that is contained in every word. I loved the stories of how she came to adopt her children.

    Katie, hello! I so wanted to do that when I grew up. In another life/time I am Katie. She is so amazing. Hearing how God has worked through her is just awesome.

    No. But I really loved her voice. She did a great job.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    God speaks, Katie listens.

    Story
    "Cried like a little girl"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Kisses from Katie to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read the print...so I can't answer that question.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is great to see a real person do what seems to be an impossible task. Many times, Katie's story brought me to tears because of her faith in God to say


    What does Jaimee Draper bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Being a guy, I would have messed up getting the feminine emotions.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were so many. When you think God can't do anymore with Katie, it happens again and again.


    Any additional comments?

    To see such a young woman doing the seemingly impossible, is just a wonderful thing to experience what Jesus has done through Katie. As stated in my title, I shed many tears at what she shared with us. This is one of the best inspirational books I have ever read.
