book-it!

"I've had people ask me why I think Africa is so impoverished, but these children are not poor. I, as a person who grew up wealthy, am. I put my value in things. These children, having no things, put their value in God. I put my trust in relationships. 
These children, having already seen relationships fail, put their trust in the Lord. This nation is blessed beyond anyplace I have ever encountered. 
God has not forgotten them. 
In fact, I believe He has loved them just a little bit extra."

Excerpt from the book I am currently obsessed with; Kiss from Katie, by Katie Davis

This young lady has an incredible story. 
I have a problem, because I cannot put this book down, but I am also trying to savor it so it will last forever.
Katie volunteered at the same orphanage in Uganda that my Father & I did in 2009.
Though I have never met Katie, she is an incredible inspiration to me and my faith.

& don't take my word for it.Go buy her book yourself!
