Katie Davis Major is the mother of 13 adopted daughters. She’s also only 27 years old – and serves as a missionary in Jinja, Uganda. After falling in love with the people of Uganda during a high school mission trip, Katie permanently moved to Uganda following her graduation from high school, and she created the nonprofit organization Amazima Ministries International in 2008. Her organization runs a sponsorship program for Ugandan children, as well as a program that feeds children, a farming outreach program, a medical outreach program, and a program that sells jewelry locally created by Ugandans and purchased by Americans.

In 2012, Katie published a book about her life entitled Kisses for Katie: A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption. Now, Katie is releasing a new book, Daring to Hope: Finding God’s Goodness in the Broken and the Beautiful. Many readers of¬†Kisses for Katie were curious to see Katie’s next steps in life. When she wrote Kisses for Katie, she was a single girl. Now, Katie is married to Benji Majors – who also hails from her home state of Tennessee – and they have a biological son. Daring to Hope¬†nicely chronicles the current chapter of Katie’s life.

Many people in life will be missionaries in one way or another, but their mission work may look a lot different than Katie’s. Their mission work may not extend beyond their own country – or they may help those from other countries from a distance, through charity programs that they start or participate in. The great thing about the book Daring to Hope is that it gives a message of hope and inspiration to all people, whether they want to serve as missionaries in Uganda, or in their own backyard.
