kisses from katie

So I've officially been on a 6 month hiatus from blogging....oy vey! However, I recently received a brand new Macbook Pro for my birthday (thanks mom and dad) and have become inspired to blog again. This blog post is not what I had intended for my entry back into the blogging world but I couldn't help but share Kisses from Katie!

During my hiatus I have been a reading machine. In the 8 months so far this year I have already read more than I have in the last 5 years combined (embarassing I know). This book is by far...without a favorite. Yes, this beats the Hunger Games, Love Does, and all my Sophie Kinsella beach reads!

Quick synopsis of the book, "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."

I'm almost done with this marvelous, life-changing book but couldn't wait to finish before sharing. This book will leave you inspired to change the world and will give you goosebumps with every turn of the page. God is so good and his ways are beyong unfathomable!
