Daring to Hope by Katie Davis Majors
What Mother Teresa was to India, Katie Davis Majors is to Uganda. Daring to Hope chronicles the hope Katie found in the midst of the most dire circumstances. I was amazed by her ability to love with no limits--sharing literally all she had with so many people in need of medical care, help through rehabilitation from addiction or--in many cases--providing hospice care. Katie found that her hope in Christ was sufficient to carry her through the darkest of days.
What struck me was the resilience of her adopted children. Their willingness to open their hearts and home again and again, risking the threat of yet another loss. Being willing to embrace another child into their room and sharing meals and belongings. Katie admits to days of exhaustion and unimaginable grief but through it all, she shares how her hope in Christ could not be diminished but grew richer with each trial.
In the face of poverty, inconvenience, orphans and widows, Katie finds lessons of faith. Readers cannot help but admire the tenacity, sacrifice and faith of this young woman who has given her all to serve others. Pick up a copy of Daring to Hope and the first world problems and inconveniences that we so often grumble about will fade away while a vision of what truly matters to God will come into sharper focus.
Readers can connect with Katie through Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Find out more about her organization, Amazima Ministries, through the website as well as YouTube.
