  3. I finished your book today, Katie! I has greatly blessed my heart. You are such a beautiful person, and I know that is a reflection of the living Spirit of God within you. Thank you for your humble obedience to the Spirit's leading. Not only are you blessing the people of Uganda, but you are blessing brothers and sisters in Christ all over the world who are learning from your example!

    Merry Christmas. God bless you and your beautiful little girls.

  7. Katie,
    I am just beginning to read your book and I have already passed it on to my mom, sister, niece, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law for Christmas. I am also presently wearing one of the beaded necklaces made from one of the women living in Uganda. I am inspired by the way you are Jesus' hands and feet to your 14 daughters and all the people that you come in contact with. I have recently also been reading about Heidi Baker and her family in Mozambique.

    My husband and I have been a part of an inner city ministry in Fort Worth, Texas called Fortress for about 10 years now. We have been a support in different ways through the years but we recently have felt we need to “step it up” with the kids we taught bible class to 10 years ago and are now in their 20s raising their own kids, still on welfare, some without jobs, etc. Thank you for inspiring us through your journey to meet people where they are and to better prioritize our lives here on earth. I hope to meet you one day on this earth..if not..definitely in heaven. Blessings over and around you,

  9. Katie, I just read your book, Kisses From Katie, you are an amazing young woman filled with God's love. I bought this book for my college age daughter, but grabbed the book and read it before she could. You remind me of myself many years ago and of my daughter who desires to love orphans the way you do. I hope you visit and volunteer and your orphanage and ministry soon. Thank you for loving and caring for God's people in Africa who need it the most. Leslie Holm

  10. Katie, I received your book from my father in law on Christmas Eve. I started and finished it on Christmas Day. I am a mother of two adopted kids…beautiful mixed children and so your story (well parts of it) were very familiar. My husband and I are looking for ways to help your ministry. We are so amazed at how you are letting God work through you at your age (we are you age as well). Please let me know if there are any specific needs, besides money that you or your daughters have.

  24. My sister let me borrow “Kisses from Katie” and you remind me of another missionary I just finished reading about, Mary Slessor. It is such an encouragement to know that there are still people that fear God as you do. I pray for you and your girls often and appreciate all the good work God performs through you.
