Daring to Hope: with a GIVEAWAY

WINNER is PENNY - Comment #2
See below for selection from

When Katie, author of New York Timesbestseller, Kisses from Katie, moved to Uganda and later became the mother of thirteen girls through the miracle of adoption, she determined to weave her life together with the people she desired to serve. After unexpected tragedy shook her family, for the first time Katie began to wonder, Is God really good? Does He really love us?Daring to Hope is an invitation to cling to the God of the impossible—the God who whispers His love to us in the quiet, in the mundane, when our prayers are not answered the way we want or the miracle doesn’t come. It’s about choosing faith no matter the circumstance and about encountering God’s goodness in the least expected places. 

Available on Amazon, CBD and other retailers. 

Meet Katie Davis Majors
Katie Davis Majors moved to Uganda over a decade ago with no idea that this would be the place that God chose to build her home and her family. Today, she is a wife to Benji and mama to her fourteen favorite people. Katie and her family invest their lives in empowering the people of Uganda with education, medical care, and spiritual discipleship. She is also the founder of Amazima Ministries, an organization that cares for vulnerable children and families in Uganda and the author of the New York Times bestseller Kisses from Katie.

My Take:
I read Kisses from Katie years ago, and found it inspirational. This book was no different. I was so excited to get to read the follow up on Katie's story. 

Words cannot really describe how I feel about this book. It was moving, inspirational, and many times brought me to tears. It was just what I needed to read at the time. The Lord used it to increase my faith, to remind me of who He is, to inspire me to trust Him even when I cannot see the outcome. 

Katie's life is exemplary, but not because she is perfect, instead because her goal is to be what her Savior wants. It's about surrender to God's will, our brokenness and God creating beauty from out ashes. 

I cannot say enough good about this book, just read it for yourself. Ask God to open your eyes to what He wants to say to you through it. 

I received this book courtesy of iconmedia to read. I was in no way required or asked to review positively.

  1. I haven't read any of her books but this one sounds wonderful. I would love to go on a mission trip.

  2. I haven't read her books, but I've been on the mission field for 20 years. I've often felt that God has used the work more to shape me than to change others. This book addresses a tough topic, and I'd love to read it.

  3. My Katie is reading the first book...she would love to win the second one. I think I will read them too. :). Starr Bragg
