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 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.
