About this item

What would cause an eighteen-year-old senior class president and homecoming queen from Nashville, Tennessee, to disobey and disappoint her parents by forgoing college, break her little brother's heart, lose all but a handful of her friends (because they 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 and didn't even speak the language?

A passion to follow Jesus.

Katie Davis left over Christmas break of 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 of Uganda and the needs she saw that she knew her calling was to return and care for them. Katie, a charismatic and articulate young woman, is in the process of adopting thirteen children in Uganda and has established a ministry, Amazima, that feeds and sends hundreds more to school while teaching them the Word of Jesus Christ.

Kisses from Katie invites readers on a journey of radical love down the red dirt roads of Uganda. You'll laugh and cry with Katie as she follows Jesus into the impossible and finds joy and beauty beneath the dust. Katie and her children delight in saying yes to the people God places in front of them and challenge readers to do the same, changing the world one person at a time.

A single 18 yr old gal goes to Uganda and begins an USA home based stock pile of donations for the starving ... this is one story EVERYONE should read and be grateful for all you have! Greed in the USA has become nonstop... How much and how often do YOU think to give to the poor? This is a must read by a young woman who is ever grateful to our Lord for everything He gives. She takes no credit and believes with all her might. This young woman is amazing!!!!! I passed the book on post reading . Buy it and learn from it.

An Amazing Story of How Great God Is!

Before reading this novel, God revealed to my family and I that were going to be "missionaries" to Cambodia. I can't say exactly how we will get there or when we will go, but I do know that God has placed this calling on my family's heart and we plan to answer it with a "yes" to our Lord and Savior. Through Katie's story it gave me hope in knowing that right now I don't have to know to answer to these questions and other questions that might come up, but like Katie, God will provide the way (and continue too!) for it to happen. I just have to trust Him. Having experienced this calling prior to opening up the first page, I was so blessed to read Katie's story! She paints such a beautiful picture of her journey with Christ and how her calling came to be. She doesn't hesitate in explaining her love for her family in Uganda or hesitate in showing her human struggles. I really felt Katie's heart and love for the people of Uganda through each page, even if there were times that I was tearing up. I want to say I was blown away by the stories that Katie tells, but I realized that like she said she is just a woman who said "yes" to God. All Christians have the potential to do things she is doing as well as see the miracles she has seen in our own backyards or even overseas. I was thoroughly inspired and encouraged to continue to say "yes" to God concerning the calling He has placed on my family's life. "Kisses from Katie" isn't a "light" book, but it definitely tells a story of how great God is and truly how deep His love is for us. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who is struggling with thoughts of "How can a good God let bad things happen?," unsure if God has even placed a calling on their own life, and becoming inspired to step out in faith in one's own personal relationship with the Lord. I give this novel a 5 out of 5 stars!
