Katie,

I just read your book, and I'm having withdrawals! I wanted to keep reading.

What you are doing has inspired me beyond description. I, too, want to do what He wants me to do minute-by-minute. Just wanted you to know how God has used you to tell me some things.

Oh, Katie, I cannot describe how I have been touched and blessed by your book. The biggest "wow' for me is that you understood what it meant to be a disciple at your young age. Believe it or not, I am only now understanding this at 57years old!! Love from New Zealand, Wendy Stewart

You and your children are so beautiful, Katie!

I just finished reading your book, and I cried through the whole last chapter (and lots of other parts, too). Reading it was a life-changing experience. My 12-year-old daughter is now reading it.

May the Lord bless you as you serve Him!

Katie, I know you get a million comments on here from people all over the place and you really don't know us from Adam! But, I just wanted to say Merry Christmas and thank you for being obedient in the day to day to the Lord. Your life has been a testimony and challenge to me. I pray the Lord works deeply in my heart and leads my husband and I down the road of sacrifice I know He has lovingly laid before us. I pray that we will say yes to the Lord everyday. From one momma of many to another ~~~ Brandy

Merry Christmas, Katie to you and your family! I enjoy reading your blog and looking at the pictures you put up of your beautiful family.

Hanna said...

I just finished hearing your audiobook. I can only say Thank You! because in the bottom of my heart I feel it changed my life... it saved my life.
I live in Colombia, a country in South America which, as everywhere in the world, has many needs and can always use many hands to close the social gaps and decrease poverty. I know it is not your intention, but thank you for inspiring me, us, many of us to give back to this broken world.

Katie,
My daughter and her friends recently read your book. We are in the adoption process and have recently started an orphan ministry in our church. The girls had a bake sale this am to raise money to send to you! We have all been so touched by your life and ministry. We are close to $1000. We took pictures I would love to email too! This was their idea for Christmas instead of having a party. May you and yours have a blessed Christmas! Money will be sent Monday!

Hedy King said...

Katie, Katie, what a sweet, gentle soul you are. I feel humbled just reading your posts. I am aware there are others like you, doing God's work with His children, but you and Mother Teresa are my heroes. Stand strong, dear girl.

Kaitlin said...

Your Children are so beautiful. Your book has inspired me greatly. God is so good and he is working through you in such a beautiful and life changing way. Merry Christmas, and many blessings throughout the new year! God bless you and each one of the people in Uganda! :)

The first thing I noticed when I came to your blog is that I can see your breasts in your header picture. You might want to fix that.

Merry Christmas Katie! I just recently read your book. It was amazing! My school is starting a fundraiser hopefully soon for you guys over there in Uganda, so there will be some more money coming your way! My dream is to come to Uganda one day! God bless you and keep up the good work!

Chris Holloway said...

hi! I am a first time visitor and reader of your blog, and I am challenged by your amazing faith! I first found out about you when watching a video on Dave Ramsey's site, and have been praying for you since.

I have the word Amazima stuck in my mind lol, kinda an obsessive repeating glitch. but it reminds me to pray. I work with a youth pastor in Mississippi, and will be sharing your story soon! also, going to get me one of those beaded necklaces to :)

Joyful Le said...

I can't believe it!!! I'm finally all caught up and I don't want to be!
After reading hours on end (from book to blog) I will now have to start my Katie withdrawal hehehe

So thankful for my Jesus sending you and your story to me at the perfect time. I look forward to new blog updates that will come real time - and I look forward to the opportunity to pray for you as the things are happening (instead of praying for them years after they have happened!) haha

i know i know - if i was reading blogs from past years - why pray for it after its happened? well... because God knew that I WOULD pray for it! and His ways are not our ways! :)

Merry Christmas Katie, Sumini, Hellen, Patricia, Tibita, Grace, Scovia, Sarah, Mary, Joyce, Agnes, Prossy, Margaret, Zuula, and sweet Jane always! (i think i spelled them all right! hehe)

And a very very Merry Christmas to you to, Katie. You have not only helped the people of Uganda, but also alot of other people as well thru your example all over the world.

Much love.

Amanda said...

Beautiful! I love it! Merry Christmas to you and your family, Katie! May God continue to bless your lives and ministry.

I ordered a bunch of copies of your book for Christmas presents. I know it's hard for so many eyes to be on you, but I want to tell you that you the impact you are having on the world now reaches far beyond Uganda...thank you for the gift of sharing your life with us. I know my life is changed as a result! Some books leave you feeling guilty or over-burdened. I definitely felt burdened after reading your book, but also empowered! God has given us everything we need for life and godliness! I'm learning to do a better job of loving the people God puts right in front of me...and hopefully someday he will allow me to care for one of His children who has been left alone in the world. My eyes are no longer on that end goal of adoption, but on HIM. Thank you for pointing me to Jesus. :)

With Love,
Amanda (and the Hall family in Colorado)

Denah Siebert said...

Just finished reading "Kisses from Katie". Words seem inadequate to describe the way your life and words touched my heart. It was a wonderful reminder of how He loves...from Uganda to America...

You have encouraged and challenged me to remain faithful in the tasks that He has called me to and to keep my eyes and heart open to hear His voice.

Thanks so much for being willing to open your life up to the world and be used by God.

Merry Christmas Katie and family! I have just started reading your book and blog and every second of your life brings tears to my eyes. Tears of sadness, joy, but especially happiness that God is moving in Uganda and you so dramatically! You are such an inspiration and i would love to meet you! I have always wanted to work in an orphanage but now it's growing into such a desire it scares me..lol..You are so amazing and so is God and the family you have that continues to grow!

Merry Christmas to you and your wonderful family. Love your book...you've really touched my heart and opened my eyes.

I don't even know how I got started following your blog but I love reading your post. My husband just bought me your book and I can't wait to start! I love your smile with all the kids. It's so wonderful to see someone doing what they love to do and seeing the passion in every picture and every word you write. May God continue to bless you and your ministry!!!

Received your book today...love it and you. My neighbor founded COW (Children of War) and works w/Sudanese children. She works with an orphanage in Sudan. My husband and I moved to China in our 70's to teach quietly about Our Father and we have never been the same.

You are a champion...

Thank you for living the life that Christ called you to.

I pray your Christmas will be filled with peace and joy!

Jill said...

It has taken me three days and a box of tissues, but I have now read ALL five years of your blogs.
What an inspiration! I was reminded of many important truths but this one stuck out: "How many times do we choose comfort instead of the cross?"
Thank you Katie for your willingness to be transparent, to honestly open up your life to us, to share your struggles and triumphs. May God continue to bless you and you serve Him.

Just finished reading your book with my nine year old daughter (really hard to read the book aloud due to crying so much!). Thank you! Thank you for waking us up. Erika has started a deal that if we go out to eat and she orders water instead of soda we get to donate $2 to amazima. :) Love the foot picture! We are changed and love you all.

Christiana Thanos said...

Dear Katie,

I have just heard about your work in Uganda and read your entire blog. I am blown away by your love for these girls. I spent a total of about 9 months working for a Greek Orthodox Christian orphanage in India and produced a short video called "Lucky Girls" www.theluckygirlsmovie.com about the orphanage. I felt like living in India changed my life. Everyone always praised me for my work, and in my own selfishness, I admit that I liked it. When I read your blog and your work, I thought "this is love. this is real God's work." My work is small, tedious and temporary. It was just so humbling to read what you have done, and it definitely made me re-evaluate my own own level of humility, which has been low. I respect and admire you so much, and I will be praying for you. All the best to you and your daughters this Christmas.

Thank you for book, a great book to keep me grounded all the time, but especially during this Christmas season. I have been deeply affected by it, and it is having a great impact on me. May you and your girls have the best Christmas. Oh, how I wish I could be there, too.

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,
Abbie Schneider

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

Adam and Kinzie Harvell said...

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.

Hi Katie.....I have just learned about you. From my techer. We um were talking about Africa and it's problms. Well my teacher thought it would be a good idea to show us you! And I GLAD she did. You are amazing. I can't beleive what you have done. You are a savior in my eyes. I look up to you. Just sharing your stories makes me want to get out there and do something GREAT like you! My teacher said "It doesnt matter what age you are....You can always do something.". You have brought me to tears watching your videos and reading your blogs but in a happy way. You are saving these peoples lives and you are ONLY 22! You are AMAZING. Everyone and I mean EVERYOBE in our class was like WOW. You are my role madel. I am going to follow you. and I love the pictures! Tell everyone ther that we all say hi and god bless! Katie....I cant even explain how great you are! I love your blogs keep posting!

dear katie,
i would like to say that i am so inspired by you and Him. i follow your blogs and i am reading your book and i think what you are doing is AMAZING!i was wondering if you could somehow find about five minutes (which i am sure is hard to find in your busy life)to answer some of my questions for a project on who inspires me. i would like to share this project with the rest of my 9th grade class and i hope they become inspired as well. if you are interested and can find the time you can email me a raegan.morgan1@gmail.com i will have my questions at the ready for you to answer! thank you for finding the time to read this, and i am inspired everday by you and your children and most of all my Father. thank you again!

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.

This blesses me!!! Reading your book and praying for you and your wonderful family!!! I was in Lira, Uganda last November with Project Hope Worldwide visiting the sweet boy we sponsor and ministering to the people in the surrounding villages. Your book has reminded me of SO much and I can't wait to go back. God is using you in such an amazing way!!
