Hi, lovely readers! I’m finally posting on Wednesday! 😛 So, today I’m going to be doing something a bit different from usual. I’m going to be reviewing the book Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis!

This book was life-changing. It made me tear up because I wished I could do something like Katie did.
Katie Davis is a missionary in Uganda, and mother of thirteen adopted Ugandan children. Her book followed her story, a story of hope, healing, and love.
She talked about trusting in God when you are afraid, being brave when you feel anything but, and sacrificing everything to serve others. Katie’s story is full of light, and this book was too.
My favorite parts of the book were when she described how she got each of her daughters, the One Day… journal entries, and the photo inserts.
I couldn’t put it down! Every word was perfectly written, every chapter full of more surprises, and there were even pictures of her adorable adopted children. Jane’s story made me almost cry. The whole book almost made me cry.
And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned.Mark 16:15-16
Because Katie is an example of someone who is willing to be God’s hands and feet and serve others.
The cover was gorgeous, and so was the blurb, and every aspect of the book was generally awesome. I definitely rate this book 5 stars, and I 110% recommend it! I got my copy from the library, but you can also purchase it here. She also wrote a sequel that I can’t wait to read!
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.Philippians 4:8 New International Version (NIV)
Overall, this is a truly awesome book that is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, respectworthy, excellent, and praiseworthy!
