As a teenager fresh out of high school, Katie Davis embarked on what she thought would be a one year missions trip to Uganda. It turned out to be quite more than that. Leaving all the comforts of her upper-middle class existence, she has now committed her life to these people. She runs Amazima ministries which educates hundreds of children and presently feeds over 1,600 per day. And she has adopted 14 orphans.
She is 21 years old.
I'm just a mom. Thirty-something with five kids. Never been on a missions trip. Never adopted a child. But this book has inspired me more than any other because it is about much more than missions work. It is about a heart running after God with reckless abandon. Stepping out from behind the Christian "ideals" and really walking the thing out. Through her story, she shows me that walking out my faith is scary, but immeasurably rewarding. She shows me that doing so does not require special skill, advanced degrees or years of experience. Only a willing heart.
This is a life changing book.
