Kisses from Katie: A Young Woman's Journey of Faith, a Remote Village, a Love Without Limits

Katie Davis with Beth Clark. Howard, $24 (288p) ISBN 978-1-4516-1206-6
When an 18-year-old from Nashville visits Uganda on a mission trip, she is so affected that she moves back for one year to teach in an orphanage. Within a short time she discovers the needs around her are so great that she feels led to start a nonprofit that feeds, educates, and shows the love of God to children in Uganda. Finally faced with a choice between the United States, her parents' wishes for her college education, her boyfriend, and staying in Uganda, Katie must decide: will she give up her life and buy a one-way ticket to Uganda? As the subtitle suggests, this is a story of an amazing young woman with no limits to love. Davis eventually adopts—one by one or in groups of siblings—14 children, with hundreds more being sponsored through the nonprofit Amazima (truth) Ministries she establishes. This is an emotionally charged and vivid account of a person following in the footsteps of Mother Teresa, asking God, "Whom would you have me help today?" and believing the answer is right before the eyes of the one praying that prayer.
