Daring to Hope by Katie Davis Majors is about “finding God’s purpose in the broken and beautiful”. When Katie Davis Majors first moved to Uganda, Africa, as a young 19-year-old girl, she had no idea how big an impact she would make on the Ugandan people, nor how much God would bless her as she ministered to the Ugandan people. Now, ten years later, and as a mother to thirteen adopted Ugandan girls, Katie continues to share her unique story in her book Daring to Hope. In this book, Katie tells of the pain and grief of loss when she lost a foster daughter, as well the joy of finding new love. After Katie lost her foster daughters well as two dear friends who had become like her own, she started to wonder if her work in Uganda 2was in vain. However,m just as she was giving up, God opened up a new door in her life that she had not expected to be opened-her heart. Katie met Benjie Majors when he came on a missions work conference to Uganda where Katie’s ministry was located. Eventually the two fell in love and got married, and since then Katie has given birth to baby boy whom they named Noah. Katie and Benji Majors now continue to help the Ugandan people and bring them Jesus’s light in Uganda’s dark world. Daring to Hope brings the reader from laughing to crying as you read of the extraordinary story of an ordinary girl who continues to make a phenomenal impact form the corners of Uganda, Africa.

My Thoughts:

Katie’s story, to me, is just so inspiring. I read her first book Kisses From Katie  several years ago and have been in love with it ever since. While I absolutely loved her first book I have to admit that I was really excited in this one when she met, fell in love with, and married Benji! I was like FINALLY! I had been hoping she would find a husband. I also think it is so cool how she adopted thirteen Ugandan girls. Her dedication to God and her faith really inspired me in her first book and continues in her second. I can’t believe how phenomenal she is and how much Jesus means to her. I work to be more like her.
