    Thank you for recommending this book.

  2. Wow Katie! I am so moved and touched and inspired by your life. I will be buying this book and singing your praises. Bless you girl in your daily travels! God is with you!

  3. Every time I read something you’ve posted, I’m in awe all over again- in awe of all that God has done in and through you, the way that He simply receives glory in your life. I pray my life brings Him glory in this place I’m in. You challenge me. Thanks!

  4. oh katie…this is just lovely…and sunflowers…oh my favorite flower of all…I got to hear you speak when you were home in Nashville…I have never encountered such humility coming from a “stage”….I love your book and I love what you do…you, young lady inspire, not because you try…but because you LOVE…when this kind of LOVE is seen and felt…this LOVE changes lives…those who are near and far….
    I pray for you daily….
    Blessings to you.

  5. Oh goodness this is the most beautiful thing I have ever read. thank you, Katie, for being willing to serve Jesus with all that you are and all that you have. Thank you for being an example. You are a living witness.

  6. Incredible story and life for Christ in Katie Davis. An inspiration to me and all my girls, 6.
    I have been following her for a few years and know the ladies in Nashville, 147 Million Orphans, who support hers and many other efforts. I was introduce to her through them. Thank you for sharing her message with us.
    Kindest regards,

  7. I absolutely adore the story of Katie Davis and all she has accomplished in her young years! She has touched the lives of so many, and her writing is beautiful. 🙂

  8. What an amazing, inspirational story, thank you so very much for sharing this! I am now ordering a copy of Kisses From Katie and I am really looking forward to reading it!

  9. Oh wow! I am so glad you’re writing here!! My husband and I have been recently burdened for the poor. I mean, where it really bothers us in a way it didn’t before.

    My husband just finished reading the books Radical (a book I was seriously scared to read at first!) But I do believe we need to pick up your book and just glean from those who are there before us and allow God to give us confidence in what He is calling us to do (which we aren’t completely sure of yet). THANK YOU for this. I look forward to checking out your blog and reading your book.

  10. I love the way God writes our stories, and ours is to simply live them in uncomplicated faith and trust. What a beautiful picture this harvest, the grain of wheat falling into the ground and dying that it might not abide alone, but bear much fruit. Katie, it is so plain to see that, like the sunflowers, you have died and your life is hidden deep in Him. No wonder all this beauty springs up into fragrant radiance for His glory, the good of your children, and the edification of many. Your joy reflects His faithfulness to those who are content to walk the path given. Blessings on your journey.


  11. Your writings are incredible and encouraging! Thank you for allowing God to work through you to touch lives. You are blessing people all over the world!

  12. I read about the Son flower seeds, the analgy, and thought of the “process” of life. I am 73, I have been fighting cancer for the past 7 years, and now it’s in my liver, lymph nodes ,and my l kidney left. I know in my heart that I am near my life’s “harvest”, I have come to the almost end of “my season of life” to “wither & die like the sunflower”, I have produced “fruit” by sharing the Gospel of Jesus, I have planted “seed” in the many that I have sponsored in Alcoholics Anomynous over the past 31 plus years. I baptized some 27 Souls. My Soul will be resurrected into a new and glorious “Sunflower” before the throne our Glorious Loving/Faithful Father!!!!!

  13. Dear Katie,

    You have truly died to self, Katie, though I’m sure you still struggle mightily sometimes. It is so beautiful to see and to read about. When my life feels too hard, I think of your writings and your love for others and I know I can do it…all for His glory! For He has equipped me just as He has you, through the indwelling of His Holy Spirit. He’s equipped all believers…we just have to die to self and open up our hearts to be His hands and feet!

    I am praying for you, Katie! What a lovely lady you are and such an inspiration!

  14. Dear Katie,
    Your story is one of PURE and HOLY LOVE -a RADIANT display of the HOLY SPIRIT in action! I look forward to the opportunity and blessing to support you in prayer and ministry to children of Uganda. In great anticipation of meeting you and your beautiful family. May God richly and abundantly bless you and keep you safe and healthy.

  16. I bought the book for myself and read it non-stop. Katie, I can relate to you in so many ways. No one else has understood my love for another country and another people like you have. Thanks for being so honest and open. God has used you in my life. I am praying for you!

  17. Just read the book. What a wonderful story, very inspiring. A child shall lead us.
