What would cause an eighteen-year-old old senior class president and homecoming queen from Nashville, Tennessee, to disappoint her parents by forgoing college, break her little brother's heart, lose all but a handful of her friends (because the rest of them think she has gone off the deep end), and break up with the love of her life, all so she could move to Uganda, where she knew only one person but didn't know any of the language? A passion to make a difference. Katie Davis left over Christmas break her senior year for a short mission trip to Uganda and her life was turned completely inside out. She found herself so moved by the people and children of Uganda that she knew her calling was to return and care for them. She has given up a relatively comfortable life--at a young age--to care for the less fortunate of this world. She was so moved by the need she witnessed, she's centered her life around meeting that need. Katie, a charismatic and articulate young woman, is in the process of "adopting" thirteen children in Uganda, and she completely trusts God for daily provision for her and her family.
Despite the rough conditions in which Katie lives, she has found a life of service to God to be one of great joy. Katie's children bring constant delight and help her help others by welcoming whoever comes to their door. As the challenges grow, so does Katie's faith and her certainty that what she's doing in Uganda, one person at a time, will have far-reaching rewards. It isn't the life she planned, but it is the life she loves.
To further her reach into the needs of Ugandans, Katie established Amazima Ministries. The ministry matches orphaned children with sponors worldwide. Each sponsor's $300/year provides schooling, school supplies, three hot meals a day, minor medical care, and spiritual encouragement. Katie expected to have forty children in the program; she had signed up 150 by January 2008; today it sponsors over 400. Another aspect of the ministry is a feeding program created for the displaced Karamojong people--Uganda's poorest citizens. The program feeds lunch to over 1,200 children Monday-Friday and sends them home with a plate of food; it also offers basic medical care, Bible study, and general health training.
Katie Davis is more than fascinating, she's inspiring, as she has wholeheartedly answered the call to serve.

This is a very well written book. I enjoy reading books about people who follow God's plan for their lives wholeheartedly even when and especially when it is not easy. This is one of my favorite books and one that I will definitely be reading again. It was also very convicting.

This is an amazing true story of a young woman mature beyond her years and the lessons she teaches us by her complete obedience to the call upon her life. I simply cannot put this book down and I am not one that normally takes the time to read. I am ordering more to pass on. Thank you, Katie, for reminding us of what is most important in life.

Kisses from Katie is a beautiful book that encouraged and challenged me. Katie is a beautifully humble woman who genuinely desires to see children taken care of by us, the hands and feet of Jesus. Excellent read.

Kisses from Katie is a book that has had a profound effect on my life. It is an amazing story about how God can use one person to accomplish so much. It has challenged me to take a look at my life and to want to seek to be in the center of God's will every day. I challenge everyone to read this book and see if it will indeed change your life.

Couldn't put this book down. Faith-filled story of what one person can do in a third-world country when she has home-based support and a desire to do what God has asked of her. Wonderful account of one of the many aspects of evangelical Christian ministry in Uganda.
