I have a book review sort of thing to share, even though it is not part of Blogging for Books.
As the title says, I read the book “Kisses from Katie” by Katie Davis. And I know I’ve already told a couple of my readers how absolutely amazing it is. =)
“Kisses from Katie” was lent to me from a family friend, and I began reading it right away. I was just absolutely touched, ministered to, and amazed by this book, as well as the author, Katie. There was so much I could relate to, and God used it to teach me much. There was a lot to take in, and I am planning on reading it again, when the copy I ordered through the library comes in. Though I am hoping to buy it as soon as I can afford it; it is a book I would love to own, and read over and over again for great, humbling reminders.
As most of you know, I have always(well, always, in that since I could rationally think ;) ) felt…led I suppose it the word, to mission. Specifically in India, and I am looking forward to beginning, in God’s timing. But by reading this book, I learned so much, and I believe it has prepared me more for the day God does send me. He had to gently remind me a couple of times, too, that I need to aspire to follow God like Katie, not be Katie herself… *blush*. It is easy to put someone up on a pedestal, isn’t it? And yet, each time God so softly and carefully tells us what is right, and that we can be inspired most certainly by a person, but to remember that God comes first.
Oh, “Kisses From Katie” is more than amazing, and more than inspiring, I think, and I highly recommend it to you all :)
Katie Davis actually has a blog, that you can visit (and then there is a link to her ministry site on there too): http://kissesfromkatie.blogspot.com/
(I tried to put it in link form, but it never works for me…ah well.)
Before I go, I will say that I did get to meet my German penpal at MOA that I mentioned in the last post – it was really great! At one point, she was with some of her group (fellow German-students) and they were all speaking in German; it was so neat! I loved listening to it :)
But yes, it was a good time! It was also my first time wandering around MOA without my parents XD God protected us, of course – no doubt in that!
I need to get going with the day; got animals to feed, school to start, and then the Azure truck is coming today…praise God in all things!!
