Katie Davis convinces her parents that she wants to go volunteer in an orphanage over her Christmas break. Katie and her mother go to Uganda and work with the babies. Katie falls in love with people and the area. After graduating from high school Katie feels God is calling her back to Uganda. Katie again, convinces her parents to take a year off from college to return to Uganda. In her year living in Africa, she sets up a ministry to provide food, medical care and schooling for some of the children in the villages where she lives. She also adopts several girls who have no one else to look after them. She leaves her daughters after a year, to return to the United States to keep her promise to her parents to attend college. While in the U. S. she raises money for her ministry and gets people to sponsor a child, so they can go to school. After a semester of college she drops out and returns to Uganda. With God's guidance she adopts more girls and expands her ability to feed additional children and provide medical care. Her most important job is being a mother to fourteen girls. ( )

I read this biography in two days! I could not put it down. I loved this story of a Young woman from Nashville Tn who moved to Uganda to teach & serve God. The impact she makes in the lives of children in the region is amazing. What a role model for young readers. Highly recommend. ( )
