The New York Times bestslling account of a courageous eighteen-year-old from Nashville who gave up every comfort and convenience to become the adoptive mother to thirteen girls in Uganda.

What would cause an eighteen-year-old senior class president and homecoming queen from Nashville, Tennessee, to disobey and disappoint her parents by forgoing college, break her little brother’s heart, lose all but a handful of her friends (because they think she has gone off the deep end), and break up with the love of her life, all so she could move to Uganda, where she knew only one person and didn’t even speak the language?

A passion to follow Jesus.

Katie Davis left over Christmas break of her senior year for a short mission trip to Uganda and her life was turned completely inside out. She found herself so moved by the people of Uganda and the needs she saw that she knew her calling was to return and care for them. Katie, a charismatic and articulate young woman, is in the process of adopting thirteen children in Uganda and has established a ministry, Amazima, that feeds and sends hundreds more to school while teaching them the Word of Jesus Christ.

Kisses from Katie invites readers on a journey of radical love down the red dirt roads of Uganda. You’ll laugh and cry with Katie as she follows Jesus into the impossible and finds joy and beauty beneath the dust. Katie and her children delight in saying yes to the people God places in front of them and challenge readers to do the same, changing the world one person at a time.


  • Inspired by this book

    By DoctorNana22
    One of the most inspiring and hopeful books I have ever read about the pain and joy of helping people living in extreme poverty. Also helped me in my stumbling walk with God. I don't have to do it perfectly.

  • Emptying the ocean one drop at a time.

    By cprime1
    Wow I'm in awe of the power of one woman's yes! This book has inspired me. When I read the line ,"Emptying the ocean one drop at a time." It hit home with me. I recently took in an 18 African American boy who was homeless. I some times feel like I'm trying to stop a run away train. He only knows one way to live and I am begging Jesus to some how use me a broken imperfect white lady to show him a new way of life.
  • A true disciple!

    By Pregogato
    If you want to meet a Peter a Paul a Maria Magdalene in our times you can read this book and read words and stories from the Bible in the 21 century. I have read the same verses Katie has read in the Bible and reflect in her book but they are alive in her ministry and have become real and very challenging in mine. Katie is a true disciple of The Lord Jesus and I am thankful for her and what The Lord is and will do in all of us because this testimony. Thank you Jesus for Katie and the story of adoption and redemption you have orchestrated in Uganda. The incredible crazy love stories that only Jesus can create are just incredible in this book! A must ready you won't be the same!!
