Katie's Book - Kisses from Katie


Kisses from Katie

From the introduction:

"I have absolutely no desire to write a book about myself. This is a book about a Christ who is alive today and not only knows but cares about every hair on my head. Yours too. I'm writing this book on the chance that a glimpse into the life of my family and me, full of my stupidity and God's grace, will remind you of this living, loving Christ and what it means to serve Him. I'm writing with the hope that as you cry and laugh with my family you will be encouraged that God still uses flawed human beings to change the world. And if He can use me, He can use you."
     - Katie Davis


Endorsements that humble us and fill us with gratitude:

"When you think of what one young woman can accomplish by simply being open to God's call no matter the cost, you begin to ask questions like, Am I really open to God's will for my life? Through Katie's life, we're reminded how God can use ordinary people to do extraordinary things for Him. We simply need to be willing to be used."

Rich Stearns, President of World Vision US, Author of The Hole in Our Gospel

"Scripture is filled with remarkable stories of children being used by God to accomplish His purposes here on earth. Kisses from Katie is another wonderful reminder that 'big' things for the kingdom do not come from age or experience, but as an overflow of a deeper love within."

Dr. Wess Stafford, President and CEO, Compassion International

"With reckless abandon, Katie Davis followed her heart to care for orphans living in extreme poverty in Uganda. Her stories captivate the reader to take action, join her work, and make the world a better place for children—one by one."

Senator William H. Frist, MD

"I was blown away when I first heard of Katie's incredible story. I'm excited many others will now have the opportunity to be inspired and challenged by it."

Scott Harrison, Founder/CEO of charity: water

"At the age of nineteen, Katie Davis left the upper-middle-class life to move to Uganda, start a nonprofit organization, and begin the adoption process for thirteen daughters who needed a mother. She is an inspiration and a testament to what God will do when one is willing to be used."

Hugh Hewitt, host of The Hugh Hewitt Radio Show

"I was profoundly moved, challenged, and convicted as I read Kisses from Katie, and I came away wanting to know Jesus the way that Katie does. This is an honest and compelling account of one young woman's journey of obedience to a Jesus who loves the whole world, especially the forgotten and the marginalized."

Mike Erre, author of Why the Bible Matters and The Jesus of Suburbia

"A breathtaking journey into the sorrow and beauty of abandon to Jesus Christ. Katie Davis is young, still learning daily how best to serve. Yet her reckless, Peter-like love calls the bluff of a Christianity that refers to Jesus as 'Lord' with only partial intent of doing what he says. This is not a book to read if you wish for your comfort, convenience, and control to remain undisturbed. But if you stand willing to act upon belief, here you will encounter the full heartache and joy that await any person who ventures near to God's heart through adoption and other ways of loving the orphan in distress."

Jedd Medefind, President, Christian Alliance for Orphans

"Kisses from Katie will be one of those books you cannot put down. It will literally transform everything about you and guide the way for you to take your ordinary life and fashion it into something extraordinary."

Tom Davis, author of Red Letters, Fields of the Fatherless, and Priceless

"As I read Katie's book, I felt like I was reading Amy Carmichael. As Amy did in her life, Katie shows Jesus to be amazingly wonderful not only in what she writes, but also in how she selflessly cares for the fatherless. If you want to love Jesus more and better understand his love for the least of these, read Kisses from Katie."

Dan Cruver, Director, Together for Adoption, author of Reclaiming Adoption

"Katie Davis is an inspiration to me as a wife, mom, and follower of Christ. Her devotion to the Lord and her love for His children challenge me to give sacrificially, serve selflessly, and live out my salvation with radical abandon!"

Heather Platt, adoptive mother and wife of David Platt, author of Radical
