Kisses from Katie by Katie J Davis is a delightful, heart-warming book, similar to Mother of Malawi, that tells the story of an American teenager who became a mom to 14 girls in Uganda. If you were inspired by my biography of Annie Chikhwaza you're bound to like this New York Time best selling novel. It's poignant, funny, heart-rending and inspirational. More than that it offers much-needed direction that will vitally assist, instruct and challenge care workers and missionaries wherever they may be reaching out.

"I've noticed something about people who make a difference in the world," the co-author Beth Clarke observes in the Foreword... "They hold the unshakable conviction that individuals are extremely important, that every life matters. They get excited over one smile. They are willing to feed one stomach, educate one mind, and treat one wound. They aren't determined to revolutionise the world all at once; they're satisfied with small changes. Over time, though, the small changes add up. Sometimes they even transform cities and nations, and yes, the world."

Words to live up to for all who care about others and Katie Davis is certainly one who cares deeply. Like Annie Chikhwaza and others, she has sacrificed much, allowing life to take her in a direction that didn't initially fit the expectations of all those round her, but which has transformed the lives of 13 young ladies and an entire community. Katie didn't set out to be great, but she became great through her sacrificial obedience and her book `Kisses From Katie' is filled to the brim with golden nuggets that will inspire readers to reach further and do more in their own lives. As Clarke says "If you are ordinary, but hungry to obey God, may you find the strength to say yes and be launched into your very own amazing story."

I loved reading Kisses From Katie on Kindle, as you can so easily highlight paragraphs that resonate deep within you and they are plentiful. You can also see how many other people have been impacted by that particular part of the book. An example of just one of these insights follows: "Sometimes working in a Third World country makes me feel like I am emptying the ocean with an eyedropper," Katie writes. "Today, it often still feels that way. I have learned to be okay with this feeling because I have learned that I will not change the world. Jesus will do that. I can however, change the world for one person. I can change the world for 14 little girls..."

The best book I've ever read. The pure trust and faith of Katie is inspirational. This book demonstrates the trials and the real joys of putting your trust in God. The work God does through her in Uganda is truly amazing. Her openness and honesty do not make her vulnerable, they show off her wonderful gifts and she acknowledges them as God given.

It was easy to read, exciting. The writer wrote as she would speak it and live it. It was an amazing achievement for such a young person who loves everything she does for the Lord and with the Lord. A vibrant and uplifting read.

The most inspiring book I have read in a long time. May God bless the work in Uganda of Amazima.

An incredible story of an extremely dedicated and brave young woman, honestly written. I have used her example on a number of occasions when I have spoken to children and adults.
