Introduction

The New York Times bestslling account of a courageous eighteen-year-old from Nashville who gave up every comfort and convenience to become the adoptive mother to thirteen girls in Uganda.

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.

  "Evangelical Sap"by [email protected] (see profile) 01/12/16

This book is an overly repetitive narrative by a young woman whose gift is serving Jesus and the needy in Uganda. Her gift is not writing, nor is it helping people to relate to her experience. It is a... (read more)

 
  "Kisses from Katie"by erowen (see profile) 10/24/13

A book about selflessness. Katie is called to do God's work, which she does willingly and with great care and compassion. A Mother Theresa in the making.

 
  "A Feel Good Story"by retiredreaderNE (see profile) 07/24/13

Bound up in youthful energy and innocence, Katie's story is one of faith and action. The reader is swamped by Katie's positive outlook on life as she gushes with demonstrative adjectives. While the reader... (read more)

 
  "True faith and love without borders."by jessmware (see profile) 11/20/12

This is truly an inspiring book. At such a young age, the author has developed a view of the world that is awe-inspiring and hopeful. I laughed, loved and cried from start to finish. Definitely a must... (read more)
