Kisses from Katie is the kind of book I would never purchase. Someone purchased it for us as a gift and I am glad they did because I loved it. I loved the stories of her struggle and the joy that comes from serving the least and the last.
There are times when I feel like the life I live here is a bit of a struggle. I have spent 4 of the last 13 months sick. I got home at 1:10 am this morning after going around our city on a moped looking for kids who may have been trafficked. Some days I just want to have a normal job and not deal with the heartache and injustice, the fundraising, the multiple ministries, and the multiple projects in multiple countries.
Katie Davis’s account of her first three years in Uganda was convicting, inspiring and challenging.
Convicting because the life she lives and the sacrifices she has made are 10 X’s more difficult than my own. Inspiring because she makes it clear that there is no better path to be on than the one that God has called you to. Challenging because she chose to despise the things of this world and say yes to the things of God.
If you are looking for a personal account of the radical life lived out, look no further.
