kisses from katie

I'm not sure when I began following this blog, or how I even came in contact with it. But I do know that Katie's life and story has completely touched my soul and I look forward to each and every post she writes about her life in Uganda. Take a look, I promise her words, pictures, and profound love for her daughters will move you to tears and speak to your heart.

Katie is a girl, who at age 21 has founded Amazima Ministries, and is the mother of 13 precious Ugandan little girls. You can read her story at either of the previous links. But the thing I'm most excited about is that she has finally written a book about her journey.

I highly recommend following Katie's story, supporting her in any way, and reading her book. I know I can't wait to get a copy!

"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."

"People tell me I am brave. People tell me I am strong. People tell me good job. Well here is the truth of it. I am really not that brave, I am not really that strong, and I am not doing anything spectacular. I am just doing what God called me to do as a follower of Him. Feed His sheep, do unto the least of His people."
