    1. M.K. Gilroy

      We moved to Brentwood, Tennessee, in January 2006 My youngest daughter, Caroline, was a junior in high school You can imagine how nervous we were as parents on how the move would go for an almost senior and for the two other kids still in the house Within days Caroline met two Katies who welcomed her to Ravenwood High School and made her feel as if she had grown up in their circle of friends I m still sighing with relief.One of the wonderful Katies Katie Davis took a different path after graduat [...]

      I originally gave the audio of this book 1 star I didn t like it I found that difficult to do due to really wanting to like the book and due to the similarities between Katie s work in Uganda and my own work with street children in the Philippines I found so much of Katie s story mirrored my own experiences The desperate poverty and wanting to take every person in to your home.I have now read the book and found it better than the audio The lady audio narrator tells the story in such a sickly swe [...]

    3. Samuel

      Enough has been said to praise this book, and what Katie Davis has accomplished is deserving of praise But this book is severely lacking in cultural awareness or sensitivity Instead of showing herself completely immersed in Ugandan culture, Katie instead uses the gospel to provide a universal truth that everyone engages in Herein lies the problem, what Ugandan culture that is displayed is often negative, African people s time , the tendency of step mothers to neglect their children, the habit of [...]

    4. Andrea

      This is a very strange book First, the comparisons of a 22 year old to Mother Theresa the galley I had referred to Greg Mortenson on the back too, but I m guessing they ll take that off kind of put me off to begin with Second, the hysterical tone of the religious language and the patronizing attitude toward the Ugandans she works with was disturbing Why would someone hire a teenager who didn t speak the local language to teach kindergarten Was she actually being paid a salary Was it or less tha [...]

    5. Kimberly Dickson

      Whoa So, this book ended up being not quite what I expected and yet exactly what I needed I went in expecting a touching story about a young, beautiful Christian girl who goes to Africa and cares for some children there What I got was an honest confession from a young woman trying to follow the Lord about how hard it can be to do just that, especially when He s calling you to do something that seems crazy and difficult And yet, she discovered great joy and peace doing just that the hard stuff He [...]

    6. Renee

      She s twenty two years old, raising fourteen little girls in a dot on a map called Uganda How did Katie Davis, high school student from Nashville, Tennessee, end up mothering children in East Africa In her own words Jesus wrecked my life For as long as I could remember, I had everything this world says is important In high school, I was class president, homecoming queen, top of my class I dated cute boys and wore cute shoes and drove a cute sports car I had wonderful, supportive parents who so [...]

    8. Carrie Turansky

      If I could give this book stars I would I was so inspired by Katie Davis s story of her work in Uganda with orphans She reminds me of a modern day Mother Theresa Her heart to live out the Love of Christ has really touched my heart I highly recommend this book.

    9. Heidi

      Katie Davis was an 18 year old senior class president and a homecoming queen living in Nashville Tennessee when she decided she wanted to become a missionary and put her plans for college and pleasing her parents on hold She left over Christmas break during her senior year and headed to Uganda What was supposed to be a short term mission turned into a life long passion for this young lady who once admitted to wanting to be Mother Theresa when she grew up Katie fell in love with the people of Uga [...]

      About this book What would cause an eighteen year old old senior class president and homecoming queen from Nashville, Tennessee, to disobey and disappoint her parents by forgoing college, break her little brother s heart, lose all but a handful of her friends because the rest of them think she has gone off the deep end , and break up with the love of her life, all so she could move to Uganda, where she knew only one person but didn t know any of the language A passion to make a difference Katie [...]

    11. Naomi Sarah

      I have to be honest I did not expect to love this book.I considered it overrated in the blogging world before I had even read it Very prejudgmental of me, I know But once I had started to read it, I got sucked in This books reads like a TRAIN I read it in two short evening hours, and it is, all in all, a very inspiring testimony While it s not myfavouritebook, I definitely recommend it What I liked 1 The writing style I was surprised about how good it was, actually It read beautifully.2 Katie is [...]

    13. Kaleena Menke

      While Katie is an impressive woman, I struggled with her cultural in sensitivity and the God that she believes in On one page God is a miracle worker who heals the impossible, on the next page it s God s will that a child should die of a curable disease The good This book gave me a swift kick in the rear to remind me of my desire to work in developing countries.

    14. Melissa Jill

      This book is written by, and follows the journey of a 19 year old girl who went to live in a village in Uganda after graduating high school in a Tennessee suburb She is now 23 and has 14 adopted daughters and a full fledge non profit that helps feed, clothe, educate and give hope to poor children who live in destitute conditions Talk about using your life to make a difference I want to make a difference with my life SO BADLY and this young girl is smoking me I really enjoyed this book and God us [...]

    15. Becky

      Dare I say it This is one of the best, best, best, best books I ve ever read, at least in its genre While Kisses From Katie may not be a theological book, a book about doctrines that unite and or divide, a book strictly about the gospel what it is, what it isn t it is a book that celebrates and illustrates the gospel It is a book that celebrates and honors Jesus Christ Kisses From Katie is a memoir or a biography, I suppose It tells the story of a young woman, a young teen when the book first be [...]

      pg 132 I was learning that the powerless, broken, dependent place was actually the place where the Lord was closest to me pg 224 Help me to hurt, not just a little, but the way you hurt when your children are overlooked and perishing Help me to never be too busy or too comfortable to remember the people who suffer Help me to never stop desiring to do something about it Lord, help us to remember that as the body of Christ, this is our responsibility Thank you for loving us, even when we forget I [...]

    17. Erica

      I am finding it very hard to rate this book.e I cannot imagine anyone being anything but impressed by this woman She gives up everything to help the poorest of the poor in Uganda You have to admire this girl and she personally deserves 5 stars for her work and commitment The book, however, was kind of irritating to read Have to say first and foremost that I am extremely not religious I wanted to hear about the children and people she helped, but could do without the Biblical stories and preachin [...]

    19. Melissa T

      As I was reading this book, I couldn t help but wonder if there was actually an American teenager this good she seems to have the wisdom and desires of Mother Theresa, but at the tender age of 19 Katie s story was so inspiring I hardly know where to begin She not only knows exactly what it is to be a Christian, but lives it I loved, too, that she was completely open about her faults she certainly doesn t make herself out to be perfect She doesn t come across as if she is high above them or any b [...]

    20. Ruth

      Despite anything negative I may have to say about this book, let me assure you that Katie herself gets an A 100 in my book She is a remarkable young woman who has answered God s call in her life and realized the true joy that comes from self sacrifice and obedience to the will of God.That being said, the book, while enjoyable, got a bit preachy and repetitive at times However, she said a lot of things that bear repeating, so I m going to quote one, realizing that what I read was a NetGalley, and [...]

    21. Sarah

      I found out about this book after working with my church on an adoption foster child sponsorship initiative Someone recommended that I read it, and a co worker even lent it to me I didn t get around to reading it though until this past week while on a mission trip I didn t bring a book other than my Bible and daily devotional to read, and a friend happened to have the book with her I read through it this week and am so glad I was able to do so while doing ministry in another country the Dominica [...]

    22. Katie

      This was an incredible book that really captured my attention and my heart Initially, I had my doubts about this young girl moving to a foreign country, adopting a housefull of orphans, and deciding against finishing university in the States I wondered how responsible the decisions were and how mature she was However, as I read the book, I realized that my objections to her and this life she had chosen were all objections filtered through an American, twenty first century worldview Maybe her dec [...]

    23. Missy

      I would give Katie herself 5 stars for the ambition and drive she has to do what she has done BUT, the book itself was not well written I kept wanting of her own story and how she grew up, wanting to know about how she came to want to go and do what she has done I kept wanting to hear about how the people and family she left behind felt I had a hard with her leaving her children for several months to come back to the United States and attend college That part seemed a little strange to me beca [...]

    24. Melissa Miller

      Katie is an amazing young women Adopting and caring for many children as well as providing food and schooling for over 400 children In her book she provides many life experiences she has struggled with during her ministry in Uganda Each story is touching and reminds me how blessed my life in America is and how I should seek to meet the needs of others Maybe I should have given the book 4 stars because I truly enjoyed the book but settled for 3 stars because the writing was very simple Katie conv [...]

    25. Itdont

      I searched and searched and cannot find anything but glowing reviews for this book and gushing pats on the back for Katie She is, afterall, single handedly saving the children of Africa Be warned, this gal is kind of actually extremely irritating Unless you can look past all the drama and emotion and baby cuddling that is poured into this thing Allright, again, she is saving the children of Africa and that has to incorporate some drama But not as much as this book contains And I am glad for the [...]

    26. Katie

      I am delighted today to feature a guest post from my sister, Sarah Sarah is truly a one in a million kind of woman one of the most joyful, optimistic, adventure seeking, fun loving people I know Several years ago she introduced me to my all time favorite author of non fiction Shauna Niequist This past winter break, she was completely and utterly absorbed in another book Kisses from Katie To be honest, I initially thought the title was a little ridiculous for an adult book Actually, I still do Ha [...]

    27. Chelsea

      This was the first book I checked out through the employee loaner program at the book store I just got a job at and I m so glad I did I m going to talk about religion in this post, which is something I ve never really done before on the blog, but in the interest of being honest for myself in the future man do I go back and read my own blog posts way too much , this book came along at just the right time in my spiritual life, which is perhaps the thing I love most about it.This book came in to my [...]

    28. Angie

      After reading Daring to Hope, I wanted to come back and read Katie s first book and here her story of how she ended up in Uganda with a ministry and thirteen daughters It did not disappoint Katie has a way of writing that makes you feel as if you are right there with her having a conversation about faith and life Her heart and love for Jesus and for others is contagious and inspiring and her story is beautiful and encouraging Her love and obedience to God changed her life forever She left her ho [...]

    29. Emily

      A friend gave me this book and I didn t make it through the foreword before I was in tears This book is a testimony of what God will do with one surrendered life When I got to chapter three, however, I felt the walls going up Please don t let this be another throw money at Africa book, I thought But that s the direction it took, and I was disappointed that in the follow up interview section, the message years later was just as strong There is no mention in this book about the witchcraft, bondag [...]
