Katie Davis is your typical American teenager, from a small town in Tennessee, ready to head to college, to pick a career and to marry her high school sweetheart. Yet, she was willing to leave all of that behind to go to Uganda, to a third-worl country to love the unloved and become a mother to the 14 orphans. Such beauty is found in the willingness to follow Him wherever He is leading.
Erwin McManus once said, "oh what God can do with a man whose willingness to act is limitless".
She's 21, I'm 21. She loves God, I love God. She loves the nations, I love the nations. But at the end of the day, I wrestle with my willingness to follow Him some times.
It took me probably about 3-4 sittings to finish this book, which is a fast pace for my busy schedule. But I couldn't stop reading and I couldn't stop crying. Deep down inside, there was something in me longing to be so willing and so ready to sacrifice. Her life was a sermon that my ears needed to hear.
